ISLAMABAD: The PML-N announced that the party will share the message written in a letter by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif with Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman before finalising the programme for the latter’s anti-government protest march.
The decision was made by the party in a party’s consultative huddle presided over by Shehbaz Sharif
Briefing to the media Ahsan Iqbal revealed that Shahbaz had during the meeting read out contents of the letter written to him by party supremo Nawaz.
He said in the letter, Nawaz had detailed a “complete roadmap” for the PML-N and expressed the desire that the party take the JUI-F chief into confidence in this regard.”For this purpose, a senior delegation of the party will immediately take Nawaz Sharif’s letter to Maulana Fazlur Rehman so that we can give a final shape to the programme of this Azadi March,” Iqbal said.
He said Nawaz had agreed with the objectives of the so-called Azadi March and stressed the “important” role to be played by the PML-N in the face of a “sinking economy” for which he held the government responsible.
“Our Kashmiri brothers are becoming the targets of bullets of the Indian army and our prime minister is heading to mediate between Iran and Saudi Arabia,” the PML-N leader said, criticising the Imran Khan-led government’s efforts to highlight the plight of the people of occupied Kashmir.
He said Nawaz had directed the party to “initiate a comprehensive movement so that we can get rid of this government”.
The instructions given for that movement by the former premier were corroborated by the party leadership during today’s meeting, Iqbal added.
