Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has made it clear that it would not take part in protests of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (F).

According to the sources, PPP will propose its narrative regarding the protests, and will suggest country-wide protests.

Sources have said that PPP suggestions include other protests methods than of JUI (F)’s.

PPP proposes same narrative as it had in 2014.

On October 22, Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari  said that we are with Maulana Fazlur Rehman from the first day for Azadi March.

Talking to media outside accountability court, he said that Bilawal Bhutto said that protest is the democratic right of all and democratic right cannot be taken away. We have come to fight oppression and will continue to fight in future.

PPP chief said that the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has itself put federal capital, Islamabad on lockdown.

Will continue efforts to send the government packing, he pledged.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is responsible for all the crises in the country, said Bilawal.

Bilawal says that the political parties have been forced to protests only after the government shut down all options.

The anti-government Azadi March set out on Sunday afternoon from Karachi’s Sohrab Goth area towards Islamabad.

Thousands of people, including seminary students, are participating in the march.

In addition, convoys of political parties, including the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the Awami National Party (ANP) and others, joined the march.
