Islamabad: Pakistan’s opposition leaders, led by firebrand cleric-cum-politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman, on Thursday gave Prime Minister Imran Khan a 48-hour ultimatum to resign.

As per reports, the right-wing Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) leader is leading the massive protest dubbed as ”Azadi March”, which entered the seventh day on Thursday, demanding Prime Minister Khan’s resignation, accusing him of “rigging” the 2018 general elections.

Addressing thousands of protesters on Thursday night, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said the government negotiators should not come for talks if the prime minister’s resignation is off the table.

The opposition parties, including the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), have thrown their weight behind the massive anti-government rally in Islamabad.
