On Thursday, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Retired Captain Muhammad Safdar’s declared his support to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s anti-government Azadi March.
After meeting former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at Lahore’s Kot Lakpat jail, Muhammad Safdar spoke to the media. He said that he will join the ‘Azadi March’ as per the orders of Nawaz Sharif.
“Anyone who loves Nawaz Sharif will join the protest,” said Captain Safdar. I will follow Maulana into the March no problem what. He commented that Maulana’s Hike will be the fall of this [Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaaf] government.
The PML-N, though, is still waiting for Leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif’s final judgment. Though, on whether it will join the anti-government hike or not.
Shehbaz was planned to meet his brother and party Leader Nawaz Sharif today (on Thursday) to deliberate the problem and make the final decision. However, Shehbaz adjourned the meeting with Nawaz after his doctors suggested him to rest because of back pain.
Shehbaz Sharif is probable to take special authorization to meet Nawaz Sharif later this week.
The ‘Azadi March’ will start on October 27, according to the JUI-F chief. It will enter Islamabad on October 31.
