Opposition's Rehbar Committee meeting to discuss Azadi March today

ISLAMABAD: As the sit-in protest led by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) in Islamabad enters its second day; the opposition’s Rehbar Committee has planned to hold its next meeting at 2pm today at the same venue of protest.
The meeting is expected to ponder over the next course of action for the demonstration to proceed aimed at increasing pressure on the government for making it accept the demands of opposition.
Yesterday, JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman gave Prime Minister Imran Khan two days to resign and said: “or else we will be forced to think of another strategy”. “We will not be able to exercise any patience after that point.”
Addressing the Azadi March, Fazl welcomed the leaders of different political parties, and said that this was not a gathering of one political party but the gathering of Pakistani nation, adding that whole nation gathered on the same platform.
He said that the world should take this gathering seriously. “We want justice […] we want a system based on justice in the country,” he said.
The JUI-F chief went on to say that the incumbent government has left the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir alone but the people of Kashmir would fight for their independence and for their right to self-determination. “We will not allow them to play with the emotions of the people,” the JUI-F chief said.
He added that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government vowed to give employment and houses to millions of people but instead they have demolished houses of five million people.
“We have been asked to not hold Azadi March as the situation along the Line of Control (LoC) is tense,” Fazl said, adding that the rulers have bargained for Kashmir.
