Protest against Prime Minister Imran Khan, led by the fiery Maulana and leader Maulana Fazlur Rahman in Islamabad Pakistan, continued for the seventh day on Thursday, which failed to break the deadlock between the opposition and the government. Punjab Legislative Assembly Speaker Chaudhary Parvez Elahi met Fazlur Rahman at his residence in Islamabad on Thursday to end the protest, a member of the government's interlocutors' team, the newspaper 'The Dawn' reported.
Elahi told reporters after the meeting that we will soon tell the country good news about the dialogue between the government and the opposition. The newspaper quoted Elahi as saying, "We hope (and) things are seen going towards betterment". Right-wing Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) leader Rahman is spearheading the demonstration called the Independence March in Islamabad.
He is demanding the resignation of Imran Khan, accusing him of rigging the 2018 election. Opposition parties including the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) have also supported this anti-government protest.
