The federal capital is buzzing with the speculations catering number of subjects were on the top in discussion among the guests attending reception hosted by Ambassador of Morocco Muhammad Karmoune to commemorate 20th anniversary of the accession to the throne of King Muhammad VI Tuesday evening.

The diplomats and guest kept on asking about the plans of political campaigner Maulana Fazlur Rehman to storm the federal capital for dislodging the incumbent government. They were keen to have response of ultimatum given by Maulana Fazl to government to step down in August, otherwise he would undertake freedom march towards the federal capital within nine weeks.

The guests had consensus that the government wouldn’t quit on the demand of Maulana Fazlur Rehman who has yet to solicit support from the major opposition colleagues like the PML-N and PPP for his gigantic move.

Fazlur Rehman is fully capable of organising huge gathering. The government doesn’t have skill to contain him.

The guests wanted to make their assessment about the outcome of efforts of Maulana Fazl.

The senators were of the opinion that the government shouldn’t contest the move and instead impress upon Sadiq Sanjrani to step down. The government shouldn’t wait for balloting and avoid an embarrassing situation.

They recalled that its majority that has right to have its chairman. The opposition constitute majority and if government sticks to its position that means it doesn’t believe in democratic norms and trying to convert Senate into a stable through “Horse-Trading.”

In his address Syed Fakhar Imam said that since 1999, Morocco has known a remarkable evolution in many fields.
