ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairperson Asif Ali Zardari said it would be an irreparable damage if the sitting government was not sent packing.
Speaking to media after meeting Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Zardari said it was expected a strategy would be finalized to deal with the current situation.
“The amount of damage cannot be covered if the government not shown the door at the earliest.”
Responding to a question about Nawaz Sharif, Zardari said Bilawal Bhutto had already inquired after the health of Mian sahib. He said confrontation and disagreement were all ‘weather-specific’ happenings.
Speaking on the occasion, Maulana Fazl said he also met Nawaz Sharif and discussed political and other issues. “However, the meeting with Asif Ali Zardari was a luncheon gathering and wasn’t beyond that,” he added.
He underlined that: ‘we are not in a position to give any surprise.’
Yesterday (April 9), Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman’s attempt to unite opposition and give tough time to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government remained unsuccessful as the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif apologized to be a part of the anti-government movement, said sources.
Revealing the inside story of the meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Fazlur Rahman today, the sources said that JUI-F chief urged Nawaz Sharif to be a part of anti-government drive and play his political role to topple the current government. Fazlur Rahman was of the view that all the political parties should jointly launch an anti-government movement in the country.
