PPP has excluded itself from JUI-F’s Islamabad sit-in: Bilawal
KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday distanced his party from Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s upcoming sit-in in Islamabad.
Talking to the press, Bilawal said his party would not participate in JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s upcoming sit-in to be held in Islamabad.
“I will be withdrawing my party from the sit-in as JUI-F has previously never involved itself in rallies of any other political parties,” the PPP chief said.
“This was the initiative of Maulana Fazl, he took the initiative but it has been our party’s consistent policy that we do not participate in sit-ins,” he said.
He went on to state that the two parties would remain on the same page concerning their views whether the JUI-F chief is in Islamabad or anywhere else in the country.
“We definitely support the issues that he’s raising and he will have our moral and political support,” he added.
