The leading right-wing religious party in Pakistan has announced an independence march from October 27 to oust the incompetent Imran Khan government. The party blamed the Imran government for the country’s economic crisis.
Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the head of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl, announced this effect on Thursday. Whereas two days ago, the top opposition parties PML-N and PPP opposed any single struggle against the government. It was also decided to call a meeting of all the parties to develop a consensus.
In a press conference, Fazlur Rahman said, “This government is the result of fake elections. We will gather at D-Chowk. We are not those who can be easily dispersed. ‘ He further said, “All the opposition parties agree that fresh elections should be held to know who has the real mandate.”
He rejects the notion that he is moving alone. Fazlur said that his party is in touch with all other parties and is taking decisions only after consulting them.
A minister in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan has been accused of advertising crores of rupees to his own newspaper. According to the media report, he gave Rs 5.74 crore ads at inflated rates after becoming a minister without auditing the newspaper’s actual circulation.
The name of the minister has not been given in the report, but he has been quoted saying that no irregularity has been done in advertising as he is not the owner of the newspaper. However, according to government records, the said minister has transferred the rights of publication to his brother while the printing rights are still in his name.
