ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Thursday replied to Prime Minister Imran’s criticism from the other day, warning him that the government only had a few days in power before he would send it packing.
Speaking to participants of a dharna in Bannu, Fazl said that time for the government was running out.
“The roots of this government have been cut. They have only a number of days left,” he warned.
He said that Prime Minister Imran was trying to be the Gorbachev of Pakistan and alleged that he had given his sister Aleema Khan an NRO.
“Imran Khan has given his sister an NRO,” he said. “Give us a similar sewing machine which can earn you Rs70 billion in one year,” he added.
The JUI-F chief was responding to the prime minister’s taunts and tirade from the previous day where he labelled Fazl’s anti-government dharna as a ‘circus’.
