Addressing a press convention right here in Islamabad, opposition leaders — together with the previous prime minister and PPP chief Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, MNA and JUI chief Akram Khan Durrani, and former inside minister and PML-N chief Ahsan Iqbal, slammed the incumbent PTI-led authorities for “destroying” Pakistan in its two years.
“The situation in the country has reached a stage where we cannot afford even a moment’s delay,” JUI’s Durrani stated, asserting that the APC could be held on September 20 on the Zardari Home in Islamabad.
“We want free and fair elections in the country, with no interference whatsoever,” he added, terming the 2018 common elections “a disgrace to the whole country”.
Durrani stated the opposition events had had a session, whereby they determined that giving the PTI-led regime one other day could be an injustice to Pakistan. “This government has destroyed the country in its two years” of rule, he added.
The upcoming APC, he added, would determine on the long run plan of motion because the opposition leaders had already made up their minds on quite a few points the nation dealing with at the moment. Nevertheless, the Rahbar Committee assembly was centered on one level, on which all individuals had been “on the same page”.
“The APC will decide whether there will be a new election or an in-house change.”
PPP’s Ashraf stated the opposition events have been clear that “we will not back down on any legislation in the country’s interest and present our amendments to laws in the proposed legislation that are in conflict with human rights”.
He stated the opposition events realised the significance of the laws pertaining to the Monetary Motion Job Power (FATF), which was why “we played our responsible role”.
“Our members worked day and night for the FATF-related legislation. We are ready to fulfil the related demands,” he added, noting that it was completely “wrong and absurd” to assert that the opposition events had been opposing the FATF-related legal guidelines in alternate of NRO.
“We were and are ready to do as much as the FATF wants.” he stated, including the federal government bulldozed the matter simply due to the FATF problem.
“The opposition [parties] are a representative of the people of Pakistan and, therefore, propaganda must now end” in opposition to them, the PPP chief stated, claiming that greater than half of Pakistan shaped the opposition.
“We don’t need laws that the federal government can use in opposition to the opposition. Pakistan belongs to all of us, nobody can bear seeing Pakistan in bother.
“How can it be possible for us to be in favour of keeping Pakistan on the grey list?”
