Maulana Fazal Terms Govt Budget Pack Of Lies

PESHAWAR:Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman rained on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government yet again on Sunday, terming its budget a “pack of lies”.

The Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief stated that PDM was adamant on its stance, saying the anti-government campaign was ongoing with the public at its side.

The PDM chief’s remarks came during a press conference held in Peshawar this afternoon.

“The parliament used to represent an institution of supremacy, but it was desecrated during the budget session,” he stated.

Speaking of the ruckus that marred the budget proceedings, he said shoes were hurled at the opposition inside the House.

Questioning the lawmakers’ behaviour during the budget session, the JUI-F said, “How could one talk of the parliament’s supremacy.”

Fazl termed the federal budget a “pack of lies”, saying the government resorted to chaos [to hide those lies].” Parliament, he maintained, cannot continue to be run with such bitterness.

Speaking of its first rally of the fresh anti-government drirve, scheduled to be held on July in Swat, he said the alliance will organise a “mammoth and historical gathering” in Swat as well as in Karachi on July 29.

“A historical gathering will be organised in Swat on July 4 [and] we will prove how the government was imposed on the people.”

“A massive gathering will [also] be held in Karachi on July 29, where people will be organised again.”

The PDM chief said, “The government doesn’t have any grounds at all to stay in power,” adding that, “We will strive to bring Pakistan back on the track of the Constitution.”

Fazl further stated that the alliance supports the proposal of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N’s) President Shehbaz Sharif to organise an all parties conference (APC) to discuss the electoral reforms.
