Bilawal, Asfandyar want JUI-F to call MPC

ISLAMABAD: The Pakis­tan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Awami National Party (ANP) have urged Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to convene a multiparty conference (MPC) of the opposition parties to brief them about his strategy for the Oct 27 anti-government march and to discuss the modalities for other parties to participate in it.

Speaking at a news conference after a meeting bet­ween PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and ANP president Asfandyar Wali Khan on Sunday, PPP’s Farhatullah Khan Babar and ANP’s Mian Iftikhar Hussain claimed that the opposition parties were united on the “minimum common agenda” of removing the government and holding of fresh free, fair and transparent elections “without any interference of the army”.

Mr Babar said there was complete unity among all the opposition parties that the time had come to send this “selected government” packing as it had ruined the country’s economy and made the life of the common man miserable.
