Imran Khan govt ‘illegitimate’, ‘incompetent’: PDM chief Fazlur Rehman
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday termed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government as “illegitimate” and “incompetent”, adding that the supporters of the government are “culprits” and involved in all the problems being faced by the country at present.
He was addressing a gathering of JUI-F workers in Tank when he said the incumbent government did not have the right to stay in office as it is a “product of fraud”.
“This illegitimate government is a product of fraud,” he said, adding that the country belongs to everyone and that it was not anyone’s personal property.
“I am bound by the oath I have taken […] In this situation, we have to do principled politics,” Fazl said, adding that all Opposition parties were on the same page that the 2018 general elections were “rigged”.
“Pakistan is facing internal and external problems,” Fazlur Rehman said, adding that the state would be strong when its economic conditions improved.
Fazlur Rehman’s remarks come a day after several political leaders of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) addressed crowds gathered on Sunday in Larkana to commemorate the 13th death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
Rehman, who is also the chief of the PDM, said the next meeting of the leadership of the alliance will be held on January 1 in Lahore to formulate its future strategy.
The PDM has demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan till January 31 and in case of no resignation, it has announced a long march.
