JUI-F unlikely to boycott joint session


ISLAMABAD – Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) will attend a joint session of parliament scheduled to be held tomorrow (Tuesday), contrary to the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q)’s decision to boycott parliament proceedings.
According to a source in the party, the party top leadership will meet today (Monday) with JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman in the chair to devise a strategy viz-a-viz the joint session and will reach a decision on what to do next. However, he hoped that the party was unlikely to boycott the session as was announced by the PML-Q.
To protest against the drone attacks and release of Raymond Davis, the party members will wear black bands on their arms, he said, adding that there will be no protest inside the house.
