JUI-F chief invites Maryam, Bilawal to attend APC

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman telephoned opposition leaders to invite them to attend an all-parties conference to be hosted by him on June 26.
The JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman extended an invitation to Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, ANP chief Asfandyar Wali, National Party chief Mir Hasil Bezinjo and PkMAP leader Mahmood Khan Achakzai for the APC over telephone.
He also tried to contact Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Akhtar Mengal, a partner of the PTI-led coalition government at the center, but couldn’t get through as he is currently out of the country.
The all-parties conference of opposition leaders will be held in the federal capital on June 26 (Wednesday).
Last month, Maulana Fazl had announced that he would call an APC after Eid-ul-Fitr.
The decision to hold the APC was taken during an Iftar dinner hosted by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chair Bilawal and attended by opposition leaders, including Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shehbaz.
