Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman has on Tuesday rejected the imposed on public gatherings by the federal government amidst increasing novel Coronavirus cases.
The JUI-F chief said, “We reject a ban on public gatherings in the guise of COVID-19 pandemic and they will be held as per schedule.”
He further added that the incumbent PTI government use their tactics to pressurize the opposition parties.
He said that it is not a government formed from the public mandate and therefore they would not hold any sort of negotiations with them. “We also reject the results of the Gilgit Baltistan elections,” Fazlur Rehman said.
It is pertinent to mention here that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and Maulana Fazlur Rehman have rejected the recently-concluded Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
Earlier in a day, minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz slams the opposition parties for not accepting their defeat in elections and asked them to end this bad tradition.
In his tweet on Tuesday, Shibli Faraz said that this act is contrary to democratic norms, adding that those delivering lectures on democracy should adopt democratic conduct.
The Minister said the emotional statements of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari are devoid of facts and logic.
Shibli Faraz reminded that all the surveys showed the lead of PTI in Gilgit-Baltistan with Prime Minister Imran Khan as the most popular leader.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has called for a protest against rigging in Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
Secretary-General PPP Nayyar Bukhari said that the party organizations would hold peaceful protests outside press clubs across the country.
Nayyar Bukhari said that Chairman Bilawal Bhutto was participating in a public protest rally against vote thieves in Gilgit.
