Islamabad: JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that they could not give a single day to the PTI government as they wanted to save the country from bankruptcy.
While announcing to turn the sit-in into Seerat Conference on 12th of Rabiul Awwal (Sunday), he made his intentions clear about extending his stay in Islamabad beyond a couple of days.
“This government, which was formed on the basis of false promises, will have to go and now it is our national duty to do this job,” the JUI-F top leader said while addressing the participants of the sit-it.
Praising commitment of protesters who did not leave the venue despite the bad weather, he said, “We are bracing all the hardships only to fulfill our national duty,” he said adding that people gathered in Islamabad are respectable and did not assemble for picnic or dance programme.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman maintained that they were not ready to give even a single day to the government. “The country will become bankrupt if this government is allowed to present the third budget,” he said. He alleged Imran deceived youth of the country by promising to give 10 million jobs in five years instead the government is talking about doing away with 400 departments.
He also demanded withdrawal of reference against Justice Faiz Isa. He said the protesters are asked to end sit-in complying with the court decision. “Which decision you are referring to. One decision was of Shaukat Siddiqui and other was of Faiz Isa,” he said.
