LAHORE (Dunya News) – A three-member delegation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Sunday will hold meeting with Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman to discuss strategy on Azadi March.
The delegation comprising Ahsan Iqbal, Marriyum Aurangzeb and Amir Muqam will meet JUI-F chief in the light of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s letter having suggestions for the anti-government protest’s roadmap.
PML-N’s General Secretary Ahsan Iqbal said that there is no difference in the party as every member follows ideology of Nawaz Sharif. Opposition parties will participate in Azadi March as per their schedule, he added.
Earlier while talking to media outside the court, Nawaz Sharif had announced full support to the JUI-F’s Azadi March and told that he has written everything regarding the anti-government protest in a letter to Shehbaz Sharif.
JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman had decided to lead Azadi March from Sukkur on October 27.
The campaign will be started from Sindh as Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman can be arrested from Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan due to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) provincial governments which might affect the march at the beginning.
It was further learnt the Sindh government will help Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s Azadi March by providing facilities and the protest will gain momentum by the time it enters Punjab.
The sources have informed that the JUI-F chief does not intend for a prolonged sit-in in the federal capital. Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman said he does not want 126-day long protest like Prime Minister Imran Khan did.
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman said he will announce the next plan of action himself after reaching Islamabad. The protests will be staged nationwide if Azadi March is stopped, he stressed.
