ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan has urged JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to uphold democratic and constitutional norms.
In a series of tweets on Friday, the special assistant said making hue and cry over the election rigging after one year is nothing but to hoodwink the masses and weaken the democratic system.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said if the elections were rigged then why did Maulana Fazlur Rehman contest the presidential elections and his son took oath as a member of the National Assembly?
She said dialogue is part of the democratic process of which Maulana Fazlur Rehman has been the firm supporter.
The SAPM questioned as to why Maulana wants to keep the windows of his mind shut by declaring the talks meaningless.
She further asked Maulana Fazlur Rehman to shun intransigence and have mercy on his workers facing severe weather conditions.
Dr Firdous said Maulana Fazlur Rehman should not avenge his defeat in the elections by causing mental agony to the people.
