Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan has urged Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to uphold democratic and constitutional norms.
In a series of tweets on Friday, the special assistant said making hue and cry over alleged election rigging after one year is nothing but to hoodwink the masses and weaken the democratic system.
Awan wondered if the elections were rigged then why did Fazl contest the presidential election and his son, Asad Rehman, took oath as a member of the National Assembly?
She said dialogue is part of the democratic process of which Fazl has been a firm supporter.
The SAPM questioned as to why the JUI-F chief wants to keep the windows of his mind shut by declaring the talks meaningless. She further asked him to shun intransigence and have mercy on his workers facing severe weather conditions.
Firdous said Maulana Fazlur Rehman should not avenge his defeat in the elections by causing mental agony to the people.
