Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said on Wednesday that opposition parties can launch long marches whenever they want, reiterating that the government will not create any obstacles in their way.
“The opposition has the right to come to the federal capital, there will be no obstacle in their way,” the veteran politician said in an interview with Express News in Islamabad. “That’s what’s called democracy.”
When asked about Jamiat Ulma-e-Islam (JUI-F) Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman consultation with Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chair Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, he said, “The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has back off from their original agenda and they don’t have a clear strategy anymore. “
Even the two JUI-F members are preparing to contest the by-election of the national and provincial assemblies while the party prepares for the Senate elections, he said, adding that they plan to launch marches in a month or a month and a half, but they may be doing it now. “
The Interior Minister further said that the recent PDM protests in front of the General Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) were regular protests.
Regarding the Broadsheet saga, according to him it will be an important case for country in the coming days. “This will be the next Panama Leak for this country.”
Political parties, notably PML-N, a sworn enemy of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), have demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan due to deteriorating economic and state affairs.
