Fazlur Rehman claims PTI govt made various lucrative offers to him

Fazlur Rehman demands larger NFC share for KP after merger of tribal districts

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Thursday claimed that the PTI-led government had made various attempts to bribe him with lucrative offers during his recent Azadi March including the post of Senate chairman.
“You don’t know what offers they made me,” he said, referring to the government. “I was told to leave my seat [at the dharna] and I could get re-elected to the assembly from Dera Ismail Khan,” he claimed.
Fazl said that he was offered to become the governor of Balochistan or form his government in the province.
“I was also offered the post of Senate chairman,” he claimed. “I thought all the offers being made to me were belittling.”
He called on the election commissioner to decide the PTI’s foreign funding case before his retirement and called on the terms of all chief election commissioners to be extended.
Rahbar Committee announces end to sit-in protests
The opposition’s Rahbar Committee announced an end to blocking highways which was part of the JUI-F’s Plan B earlier this week.
The announcement was made by Akram Durrani after a meeting of the opposition committee.
“The committee has decided to open highways across the country,” said Durrani, who is Rahbar Committee’s convener.
Durrani said that the opposition committee had also decided to call an All Parties Conference (APC).
“Maulana Fazlur Rehman will hold talks with leaders of other opposition parties to decide the date of the conference,” he said.
