ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has failed to mend relations between Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari after persistently trying to bridge gaps between two top political leaders.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has eventually decided to stop playing a role of ‘mediator’.
The JUI-F chairman announced on Wednesday that he would no longer attempt to mend relations between the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
“I am no longer trying to end differences between Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif anymore,” Rehman asserted during an informal conversation with journalists. “I did try to end their differences, but their complaints with each other remain,” he continued.
“Instead, I am now wishing for the differences between them to end,” Rehman said, adding: “In the current circumstances it is vital for the opposition to be united.”
The former member of National Assembly (NA) explained, “Differences [of opinion] are common in politics. However, these differences should be resolved in order for the opposition to present a united front.”
