A government committee has contacted opposition parties to discuss the future plan for the JUI-F’s Azadi March as it entered the seventh day on Saturday.
Thousands of people marched alongside JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman as part of his movement to topple the PTI government. The journey started from Karachi and ended in Islamabad, with many people joining in from different cities.
A meeting of the Rahbar Committee is being held at Akram Khan Durrani’s house.
Government’s attitude is not appropriate: Akram Durrani
JUI-F’s Akram Durrani says the opposition is ready to talk, but the government’s attitude is not appropriate.
He was addressing a press conference after a meeting of the Rahbar Committee at his house on Saturday. Durrani, who is also heading the joint opposition’s Rahbar Committee, said that all parties agreed that the Azadi March mission should be taken forward.
It has been decided that the demands put forward by the Azadi March, including the prime minister’s resignation and fresh elections, will remain the same, Durrani said, adding that the Rahbar Committee will not back down.
“We are political people. We have suffered all our lives. We are open to dialogue, but the government’s attitude and way of talking needs to be fixed first,” he said, referring to Prime Minister Imran Khan and Defence Minister Pervez Khattak’s recent statements over the Azadi March.
