Multi-party conference of opposition parties gets underway
ISLAMABAD: Multi-party conference (MPC) of opposition parties, convened by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman, gets underway in Islamabad today (Tuesday) to discuss the future course of action against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.
The conference being hosted by the JUI-F leader includes nine parties.
In an apparent bid to reorganise political campaign for pressurizing the government, the opposition parties seem to formulate a new strategy in the light of recommendation made by opposition’s Rehbar Committee.
Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is leading his party’s delegation. Other members of the PPP leaders present are Nayyar Bukhari, Yousuf Raza Gilani and Farhatullah Babar.
Yesterday, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had accepted an invitation of JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman for attending the opposition’s All Parties Conference (APC).
PPP spokesperson Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar had said Bilawal will himself attend the opposition parties’ multi-party moot.
Several senior politicians will accompany Bilawal while he will present the party’s policy for the opposition’s campaign against the government.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman had led a two-week protest against the government in Islamabad which began in Karachi on Oct 27 but was later called off.
