ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Referring to Azadi March of JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the doors will not be closed if anyone wants to hold talks. According to the sources, a key meeting of government spokespersons chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan was held. During the meeting, they discussed the JUI-F’s ‘Azadi March’. “There is no need for the formation of a committee on the ‘Azadi March’ yet but the option of talks with Maulana Fazlur Rehman is open,” PM Khan said during the meeting quoted by sources. He further said that if anyone wants to talk himself, the doors are not closed but will not allow anyone to take law into their hand. The prime minister also clarified that the doors will not be closed if anyone wants to hold talks. “All important issues, including madrassa reforms, are welcomed to be discussed”, he added. The prime minister also took all the members into confidence over recent visit to China. He asserted that the visit to China was very successful. “China is with us on the Kashmir issue, and with successful diplomacy, Pakistan is slipping out of global isolation”, he explained. Earlier today, Punjab Minister for Colonies Fayayzul Hassan Chohan said that Maulana Fazalur Rahman pushed the Kashmir issue behind by hatching a conspiracy. He said that it is clear that it is an Indian conspiracy. “No one will achieve anything through this long march,” he said. The minister said that anyone boarding the boat of Maulana Fazalur Rahman would drown. “I salute Shehbaz Sharif who knows that Maulana’s sit-in is tantamount to the coal trade,” he said. On the other hand, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that fake government should be removed for saving Pakistan as incompetent rulers destroyed the economy of the country. Addressing a press conference, the JUI-F chief said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has announced to support ‘Azadi March’ and Shehbaz Sharif is not hesitating form the protest. “The anti-government ‘Azadi March’ is a national level movement and not only the opposition parties but the political parties in government alliance have also agreed to this,” he claimed.
