JUI-F announces ‘Azadi March’ towards Islamabad on Oct 27
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman has announced to hold anti-government protest as ‘Azadi March’ towards Islamabad on October 27.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday, the JUI-F chief said that the JUI-F will stage sit-in at D-Chowk in Islamabad on October 27, adding that the present government was formed as a result of rigging.
The JUI-F chief said that all opposition parties had agreed on the above and had called for fresh elections. “We will gather at D-Chowk,” he said, adding, “We are not ones to disperse easily.”
“The country is under economic crisis due to the government’s incompetency,” Maulana Fazlur Rehman said. He maintained that the party will begin its ‘Azadi march’ on October 27 towards Islamabad. “All caravans will reach Islamabad across the country. We will express solidarity with the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK).”
The decision comes two days after the leadership of top opposition parties, PML-N and PPP opposed any “solo flight” for the ouster of the government and decided to hold an all parties conference to develop consensus among all the opposition parties.
They agreed to the need for the “ouster of the incompetent and incapable government” of PTI but showed their aversion to the idea of joining any sit-in.
