JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said his party will not accept anything other than fresh elections.
“We stand firm on our demand that this government came into power through rigged elections, and we will not accept anything other than re-elections,” he told his party supporters encamped in Islamabad on Tuesday.
Fazl said the government formed a parliamentary committee to probe alleged rigging in 2018 polls but to no avail.
“The probe committee headed by Pervez Khattak did even not hold a single meeting in a year,” he said. “Objections were not raised during PTI’s 126-day-long sit-in in 2014 but today our ‘Azadi March’ is being criticised, saying it would set a bad precedent if the government was toppled.”
Maulana Fazlur Rehman lashed out at the government on Tuesday, calling for an end to the ‘drama’ that was being done in the name of accountability.
“Won’t tolerate drama in the name of accountability in this country anymore,” he said, lashing out at the government for its alleged witch hunting of political opponents.
Fazl lashed out at the government, blaming it for disturbing the friendly ties between Pakistan and China.
“We used to be proud of our friendship with China,” he said. “We used to tell people that our friendship with China was higher than the Himalayas and sweeter than honey. Now, even China is not ready to invest in Pakistan due to our leaders’ follies,” he added.
