PPP, PML-N didn’t listen to me, now suffering: Fazal


ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Tuesday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan People’s Party were facing the consequences of not terminating the constitutional mandate of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

“I told both the parties to dismantle NAB, but they didn’t. Today they are facing the repercussions of it,” said the JUI-F leader while talking to a private TV channel. The JUI-F leader said that all decisions were made with consensus in the All Parties Conference, including changing Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani.

“I am sure PML-N and PPP will have insight over how to change the chairman. We have to organise the members to put a motion of no confidence.” Fazl said that all members had been finalised for the opposition’s Rehbar Committee.

“The PML-N wants me to chair the Rehbar Committee as I headed the APC but I won’t have any issues if Yousuf Raza Gillani heads it,” the JUI-F leader said. “The opposition just a week after general elections agreed that the polls were rigged.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan People’s Party has nominated Yousaf Raza Gilani as a member for Rahbar Committee to be formed in light of decision taken by opposition’s All Parties Conference (APC). The Rahbar Committee has been tasked to finalise strategies for anti-government movement and to ensure implementation of APC’s declaration. The Rahbar Committee will consist of members from apposition’s political parties.
