Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, addressing the joint session of the Parliament in Islamabad on Tuesday, said that the session was called in view of the current political situation in the country. He said that he is proud that all Parliaments are fulfilling their responsibility, which will become a key chapter in Pakistan’s history.
He added that conspiracies were being made to derail the democracy in Pakistan but they have been foiled.
Fazl said that certain forces want to take advantage of the ongoing situation in the country. Hinting at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Fazl said that the leadership of a party tried to overthrow democracy.
“They tried to change the system on the basis of just four seats”, Fazl said.
He added that a Prime Minister cannot be distanced from the Parliament, democracy and constitution. He stressed that nor will the PM resign nor will he go on vacation.
“What is the meaning of PM resigning and going on leave? No one can force the prime minister to resign”, he said.
JUI-F leader said that no television channel, even Pakistan Television (PTV), covered their rally which had more than one lac people.
“When the military arrived at the building of PTV and the protesters started chanting slogans in favor of the army. Are they sending a message to the world that Police belongs to a state while the military belongs to the other? These elements are pushing the country towards destruction”, he said.
He added that 1 million people are displaced in different areas of the tribal region due to the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan. He added that it becomes the duty of the government to take care of the displaced persons. He stated that the attention of the country was diverted towards the long marches in Islamabad.
Fazl-ur-Rehman asked that why the resignations of the PTI Parliamentarians have not been accepted yet.
JUI-F Chief said that the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and PTI should confess that their politics has “died out” and they should bury themselves in their graves.
