Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has urged the “establishment” to remain “neutral” during the ongoing political battle between the coalition government and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Addressing a press conference in Peshawar today, Fazl, who is also the chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), said that the coalition parties will fight the political battle instead of surrendering.
“The coalition government will not become anyone’s slave…. We have to fight a constitutional battle that’s why we are demanding establishment to remain neutral… all institutions should work together to steer the country out of crisis,” he said.
“All the coalition parties will contest together in the by-elections,” he added.
He said that he does not have any grudge against any institution but he cannot say this for “individuals”. “If an individual becomes controversial then it will have far-reaching consequences for the country. People inside the institutions made false cases against us,” he added.
He said that PTI Chairperson Imran Khan came to power under “international conspiracy”, adding that the PTI received illegal funds from Israel and India.
“We know the forces behind Imran Khan. Removing him from power is not enough. We have to erase him [Imran Khan],” he further said.
