Govt decides to file treason case against Fazlur Rehman

PM Imran decides to take action against JUI-F chief under article 6
Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday announced to file a case against Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman under Article 6 (treason) of the Constitution, GNN reported.

PM Imran Khan revealed that Maulana has admitted to having an agenda behind unseating the government, he said, which is tantamount to conspiring against the State.

PM Imran said that he has the army’s support because it knows he is working hard and not a corrupt person, adding that the government and military are on the same page.

Converting Ishaq Dar’s house into a homeless shelter was my job, but now that the court has issued a stay order, I can’t do anything, he said.

PM Khan also said that he was calling an emergency price control meeting next week with all stakeholders. Electricity and gas prices are also very worrisome for the government, he said, blaming them on past corruption.

“The government will not increase the electricity prices,” PM Imran said categorically adding that the industry cannot bear the burden.
