Prime Minister Imran Khan has categorically said that he would not give in to the opposition’s demand for him to step down.

“Let me be very clear that I will not resign on opposition’s demand,” the premier told a select group of journalists at the PM Office on Wednesday.

He said it appeared as if the JUI-F chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, is backed by foreign elements, adding that even his charter of demands is not clear. “However, we will allow them to hold their ‘Azadi March’ protest [peacefully] in Islamabad.”The JUI-F chief, with the support of all major opposition parties including PML-N, PPP and ANP, will march on the federal capital on October 31 to topple the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, which he believes came into power through massive rigging in the 2018 elections.

The premier said the JUI-F’s likely sit-in in Islamabad is completely different from the one his party staged in 2014. “We came out on streets after exhausting all possible options … which platform Maulana [Fazl] has used [to address his grievances] before coming out on streets? … Attention is being diverted from the Kashmir issue because of this march. We must think who will benefit from all of this.”
