Chairman PPP welcomes the announcement of march by Maulana Fazal ur Rehman
Islamabad, 3 October, 2019: Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has welcomed the announcement of march by Maulana Fazal ur Rehman towards Islamabad on the 27th October. It was agreed upon in principle between both leaders that PTI government’s failure in addressing core issues confronting the nation have left the opposition with no choice but to take to streets, said Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, spokesperson to Chairman PPP. Undermining parliament, not allowing the assemblies and committees to function, failing to produce detained members of Parliament and continued rule through ordinance; leave even the most democratic parties with no choice but to turn to the streets. Both leaders were of the view that PTI Gov’s time in office has been marred with controversies, undermining of democracy, parliamentary norms and traditions. Governments failure on all fronts including domestic and international, economic and foreign, has created serious crisis of governance in Pakistan, and opposition has to play its role keeping in line with national interest. Chairman BBZ has convened PPP core committee meeting next week in Islamabad to work out the extent to which and modalities of how PPP can support the march announced by JUI on 27th October.
