Flamboyant by the shocked reaction of Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, the joint opposition has decided to continue with their iftar dinners even after the month of Ramazan until the government accepts their demands.
Leaders of the opposition parties on Sunday announced their plans to launch protests in the shape of Iftar parties inside and outside the parliament after Eidul Fitr while on the insistence of Maulana Fazalur Rehman, these iftar dinners will be called All Parties Conference and Iftar Dinners.
“Today opposition leaders came to my house for this iftar-dinner, oh sorry All Parties Conference and Iftar Dinners, and I am thankful that they came; tomorrow, they should arrange such All Parties Conference and Iftar Dinners so that the fast-breaking continues until we break the back of the government,” PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said after the iftar-dinner at Zardari House in Islamabad on Sunday. The event was attended by several leaders, including a delegation of PML-N, which was headed by, Maryam Nawaz says by her, while Hamza Shahbaz says, he headed it.
“We have decided to hold such iftar-dinner to discuss Pakistan’s issues and eat pakoras,” Bilawal added.
Reacting to the iftar-dinner by Bilawal-Bhutto Zardari, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan the opposition had even failed to arrange the iftar-dinner properly.
“I’ve got reports that dahi bhallay were short in supply while Hamza Shahbaz got angry when he was not offered lemonade (nimbo pani),” said the delighted Dr Awan.
“Also, pakoras had lot of mirch, because of which no one ate them.”
She dared the opposition to first arrange proper nimbo pani and then start a protest drive against the government. She said had the offshore drilling been a successful venture, she would have sent a container of lemons to the opposition.
