PTI govt has no knowledge of Pakistan’s ideology, economy: Fazlur Rehman

Fazl calls meeting of opposition parties excluding PPP, PML-N

LAHORE: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday said that the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) led federal government has no knowledge of the ideology of Pakistan, the ground realities of the country and the economy.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman was talking to media after meeting with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at his residence to inquire about the latter’s health and discuss the political situation in the country.
Calling Prime Minister Imran Khan a “fake and khala’i [extra-terrestrial]” premier, Rehman described the current regime as an “installed” one.
Rehman said he had been in touch with other political leaders, including Asif Ali Zardari. He added that he will also call on Zardari in the next few days as believes that “internal connections [among opposition parties] should remain intact”.
“The agenda of the meeting was limited to inquiring about his [Nawaz Sharif’s] health, but we also discussed our shared concerns about towering inflation, which is affecting the common man, and the troubled economy,” he said while responding to a question.
He repeated that the JUI-F has completed 10 ‘million marches’ against the government and that they are ready for a decisive one.
Meanwhile, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry — who is already not in the good books of the JUI-F — took to Twitter to criticise the meeting and asked the judiciary to take notice.
“The Supreme Court had been informed that Nawaz Sharif was ill at a extant that it would be life threatening if he is denied bail. Lied, as always. And now instead of an ambulance, Fazalur Rehman has reached there and is providing political oxygen to Mian Nawaz Sharif. Courts should take a notice of it.”
