Senate chairman removal: Government delegation calls on Fazlur Rehman


ISLAMABAD (DNA) – An eight-member government delegation Wednesday called on Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman at his home to hold talks regarding withdrawal of resolutions seeking removal of Senate chairman and deputy chairman.The representatives were led by Leader of House in Senate, Senator Shibli Faraz and Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan.

The delegation talked to media after conducting dialogues with the HUI-F head. Jam Kamal Khan told that the government has presented its view point in front of Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

“Good results will perhaps not come after the opposition’s step. Decisions should be held for the betterment of things. Half of Senate’s tenure has already completed and half is left.”

Senator Shibli Faraz said the government is contacting the opposition on fundamental grounds so that the honor of the House is not affected. The reason of this sitting was to release tension between the government and the opposition, he said.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman maintained that the opposition has come a long way, and government’s wish cannot be fulfilled at this point.
