PPP, PML-N not to back Fazl’s Islamabad lockdown plan: Sheikh Rashid

ISLAMABAD, Sep 21 (APP):Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Saturday said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) would not support Jamiat-Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman in his bid for Islamabad’s lockdown.

Talking to a private news channel, he said Maluana Fazl wanted to play on both sides of the wicket. He, however, said his plan for a sit-in would not have any impact on the incumbent government.

About the Sharif family, he said Shehbaz Sharif wanted to negotiate the matters with the government, but Nawaz Sharif was creating hurdles for him.
