PPP won’t participate in JUI-F’s dharna, only to join rally


Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has announced that they although they will not participate in the upcoming dharna of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), they would join the Azadi March rally with Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

Addressing a press conference, PPP leaders Nayyar Bukhari and Qamar Zaman Kaira said that his party does not believe in ‘dharna politics’.

“We have not been told anything about the march but we will completely back JUI-F,” he had said after a meeting of the party’s core committee.
