Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl’s (JUI-F) Azadi March entered Punjab on Monday evening after reaching Kot Sabzal town in the Rahim Yar Khan district after travelling from Sukkur earlier in the day.
Addressing his supporters, the JUI-F chief said that the incumbent government has put the country’s survival “at risk” and it is the duty of the opposition to protect the constitution and democracy.
“The constitution has been made a joke in this country. The prime minister has ruined the economy, and a country with a devastated economy cannot survive. We approached the masses against him and took out 15 million marches and now we are able to help the people get rid of the government,” the JUI-F chief said.
He said that the marchers are moving with full confidence and as the party already has declared war against the government and that the retreat was not an option.
He also accused the government of restricting the media.
“When the fake prime minister talks to media, he says that he did not impose any restriction. He should tell the nation under whose supervision the Pakistan Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), which has issued a letter restricting TV anchors, works,” he added.
