Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman, on Friday gave deadline to Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign within two days.
He has been planning the next course of action for the Azadi marchers to proceed for increasing pressure on the government.
According to the details, the deadline ends tonight raising the stakes in a protest campaign that the government has denounced as a threat to democracy.
The meeting of JUI-F leadership is underway to consider the Rehbar Committee’s recommendations.
Today’s meeting of the committee is expected to decide about shifting the demonstrators from Peshawar Mor to somewhere else.
Maulana Fazl gave PM Khan two days to resign or else he said: “We will be forced to think of another strategy”.
Fazl, while welcoming the leaders of political parties in Azadi March, said that the protesters would not be able to exercise patience after two days.
The JUI-F chief said this was not a gathering of any single political party but a gathering of whole nation, adding that the nation has stood against the government on one platform.
Earlier, Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that D Chowk is not our destination, we will now take control of the government.
He was addressing the participants of the Azadi March in Islamabad, and said that writ of the incumbent government has ended and now “we will run the country”.
He supported the demand of Rehbar Committee regarding Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation, and told the PTI-led ruling regime to step down calling the premier ‘unconstitutional and fake’.
Maulana Fazl refuted the government’s claims saying that all the roads to dialogue are blocked, and they will now take more ground decisions until they get rid of the incumbent government.
