Opposition hold All-Party Conference on Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s call

ISLAMABAD: The All-Party Conference (APC) of the opposition went underway in Islamabad around Monday noon.


The conference, which was called and is being hosted by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, is being attended by leaders and members of most opposition parties. However, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairmen Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Shehbaz Sharif are not in attendance.

Commenting on the absence of key leaders in APC, Special Adviser to Prime Minister (SAPM) for Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan said in a tweet that the PPP and PML-N had yet again ‘played’ Rehman by not showing up.

Rehman’s time would be better spent condemning the atrocities in Kashmir rather than finding common ground the two leading opposition parties, added Awan.

The opposition parties have got together to discuss the opposition’s future course of action. Actions, like locking Islamabad down and holding a ‘million march’ in the capital, are being discussed.

Members of the opposition parties have also taken this opportunity to condemn India’s actions on occupied Kashmir and unprovoked firing at the Line of Control.
