Opp parties in two minds over JUI-F’s Azadi March: Firdous

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the PM on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Saturday claimed that the opposition parties are confused on the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl’s (JUI-F) call of sit-in.

She said the government accepts the right of peaceful protest, but no one would be allowed to create chaos with the help of militia.

“The law will take due course of action in this regard,” added the SAPM.

Firdous said the provincial governments have chalked out their strategies for Azadi March and the decision to put Mualana Fazl under house arrest has to be taken by the provincial governments.

Commenting on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) meeting, Firdous said that the opponents’s steps failed to place Pakistan on the black list.

In a tweet shared on her official Twitter account, she asked Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari to be careful and “take a look at your wrongdoings.”

“Calm down a bit and think why has Bhutto not remained alive in Larkana,” she stated, adding that public meetings organised by government resources do not reflect public sentiments.

“Your stance fell through by the public’s power of vote […] our institutions guarantee our pride, defence and security,” she said.

“Which of your masters are getting pleasure from your irresponsible statements?” she asked, adding: “If you had cared about the state, then you wouldn’t have played a film of irresponsible statements.”

“All you care about is the corruption of your father and paternal aunt,” she said.
