JUI-F to support Nato supplies blockade decision unconditionally

November 03, 2013



ISLAMABAD: Jamiat-i-Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that his party will offer unconditional support to Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) decision on Nato supplies blockade, DawnNews reported.

The JUI-F chief stressed that there is a need to assess the situation following the killing of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan’s Hakimullah Mehsud in a drone attack.

“There is a dire need for another All Parties Conference (APC) in the aftermath of the killing,” he said.

“Following the APC, efforts were underway to get the country out of crisis. However, the drone attacks have changed the situation and the dialogue with Taliban has been affected,” he said.

A resolution regarding the blockade of Nato supplies would be presented in the Khyber Pakhtunkhawa Assembly on Monday.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that PTI should issue a notification in this regard, adding that his party will support the move unconditionally.

He further said that PTI should not take decisions regarding drone attacks on its own. “Tehrik-i-Insaf should have supported JUI-F’s resolution on drone attacks too,” he said.
