ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday expressed his resolve to cave in under pressure from his political nemesis Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s who intends to mount “Azadi March” on Islamabad later this month. In a meeting with senior journalists and analysts, which lasted for over an hour, the prime minister expressed his view about the JUI-F’s threat of launching protest, inflation, unemployment and foreign policy. The prime minister, according to political commentator and columnist IrshadBhatti, sees a conspiracy behind the maulana’s protest which he said is driven a “certain agenda”.
The prime minister was of the view that the JUI-F’s plan to protest have sent a wave of joy in India. He acknowledged that inflation and unemployment remain a big problem which his government is trying to resolve. When his attention was drawn towards the opposition’s stance that the PTI had also staged a sit-in, Prime Minister Imran Khan said his dharna was not staged for nothing. He said he had proofs of election rigging in four constituencies when he had staged the sit-in at D-Chowk.
