Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said yesterday that the opposition parties staged a failed public show in Gujranwala Friday night despite making month-long preparations.
He was addressing media persons along with Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry in Islamabad yesterday.
Faraz said the opposition parties could not fill the stadium in Gujranwala because people rejected them for being well aware of their vested interests. He urged the opposition to learn from its flopped show. 
“The opposition has no future plans, and they only want to protect their personal interests,” he alleged.
Taking a swipe at what he described as disorganisation evident in the opposition ranks, Faraz said there was also no unity among the opposition alliance as Moulana Fazlur Rehman was asked to address when people had left the venue.
He felt the opposition leaders, particularly Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Khawaja Asif, used indecent and inappropriate language in their speeches.
The minister said some opposition leaders spoke the “language of the enemy” and targeted the national institutions in their speeches, which will not be allowed.
Speaking on the occasion, Fawad Chaudhry said the opposition parties could gather only 15,000 to 18,000 in Gujranwala where millions of people live. He felt the people has rejected them again after the last elections.
Chaudhry alleged that Sharif’s narrative was anti-state and amounted to an attack on the state. 
He recalled that the Pakistan Army had rendered matchless sacrifices in the war on terror.
