Tariq Saeed

Chief of his own faction of JUI and Pakistan Democratic Movement president Maulana Fazal ur Rehman has asked Imran to stop calling on the masses and demanding early elections date failing which he should be ready to face the wreathe of Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.

“Try calling on the public, Hakeem Rana Sanaullah is waiting for you”. The Maulana warned Imran while speaking during a meeting of JUI-F’s provincial general council held here on Sunday. The PDM chief, whose speech was mainly focused upon criticizing the PTI leadership reiterated that that only Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has the authority to appoint the next army chief.

Referring to Khan’s ouster from power in April, the Maulana said the PDM had successfully managed to topple Imran government.

“Every time he delivers a speech, he only blows his own trumpet,” the JUI-F chief said and castigated Khan’s government for handing over Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan back to his country. Fazal also called out the PTI-led government for “holding the State Bank of Pakistan hostage to the demands of the IMF.”

In response to Khan’s statements regarding the appointment of the army chief and elections in the country, Fazal said in the past Khan used to say that the army chief should be dismissed but now he wanted his tenure to be extended.

|But let us remind him that the army chief will be appointed by no one else but PM Shehbaz.”

The PDM chief claimed that PTI chief has been proven guilty in the foreign funding case as he has adopted certain tactics to subvert the truth.

Maulana Fazl said if courts issue a decision against Khan, he calls the judiciary to be wrong and if the Election Commission of Pakistan gives a verdict against him, then he accuses the body of being biased.”

He declared that polls in the country will be held as per the decision of the coalition government.
