JUI-F Chief Claims PM Imran Does Not Have a Vision

The Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), Maulana Fazalur Rehman, declared on Wednesday that in his opinion, the Prime Minister and his incumbent government do not have a vision for the country. 

Fazl was addressing a gathering of PDM in Loralai, Balochistan, when he stated that the people of Pakistan do not want this rigged government. He went on to say that the fight of the opposition parties is for the implementation of the law, independence of the parliament, and the restoration of democracy in the country. Moreover, he highlighted the unity of the 11 opposition parties, as well as the nation on one platform. 

The chief reminded his people that their aim is to get rid of Imran Khan and his ‘fake’ government. He claimed that the Prime Minister does not have a vision and makes distorted plans for the country. Fazl maintained that sometimes, Khan talks about establishing the State of Medina whereas, there are times when he expresses hope to implement a Chinese, Iranian, or American system. 

The head of JUI-F went on to say the people of the country want the supremacy of the Pakistani Constitution. In his opinion, either a couple of strong institutions or the public can own the country. Consequently, Fazl believes that it is time for power to be handed to the public, as they are no longer willing to accept the supremacy of a handful of institutions. 

The Maulana, in his speech, also took a jibe at the current PTI government saying that the public is sick and tired of it. He accused it of leveling false allegations against the opposition parties and deeming them as ‘thieves’. 

According to the JUI-F leader, the current PTI government has done nothing but doom the economy. He highlighted how the poor are unable to buy edible items for themselves and have consequently, lost the power of purchasing. He added that poverty is driving parents to sell their children in the market or throw them into canals. 

Just last week, the Prime Minister stated that the 11-party opposition alliance, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) poses no threat to his government. He added that he is not afraid of it either. 

The premier spoke at a meeting of his spokespersons, which he was chairing, and said that the opposition had only started this movement in the first place to coerce him into granting them a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). Khan informed, like several times before that he will not be doing the opposition any favors and making any concessions for them no matter how much they try to pressure him. 

Additionally, Khan observed that the entire opposition is now united under the same umbrella, and this unity came soon after they were all being held accountable. He went on to say that his government had made sure that the weak economy of the country was on the right track, and readily improving its delivery and performance.
