Pakistan: Opposition wants military to clear its stance on ‘foreign plot’ claim

Islamabad, April 5 : Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman have asked the military authorities to clear their position on the PTI government’s claim that the National Security Committee (NSC) had declared the opposition’s resolution a “part of foreign agenda”, Dawn reported on Tuesday. The opposition parties also drew the attention of the judiciary and military establishment towards Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri who had called 197 members of the National Assembly as “traitors”, who voted in favour of the no-confidence motion, during a ruling rejecting their no-trust motion against the government. The PML-N and PPP, were joined by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Fazl), Awami National Party (ANP) and the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-P), who also expressed concern over Imran Khan’s move to declare them “traitors” in an effort to “justify his coup” and build a new narrative for the next elections.
