PESHAWAR - JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that they will take extreme steps if the Centre doesn't remove their reservations over China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). "We will not remain calm and that's why my party is going to call an APC soon on this very important issue," he said.

"It seems that PM Nawaz Sharif has deviated from his promise that he had made with the entire political and religious leadership of the country on May 28, 2015 during an APC that no change will be made in the actual routs of the CPEC," he said this while speaking at a news conference here on Sunday.

To raise a strong voice from KP against changes in the actual route of the corridor, the JUI-F would hold an APC soon. In this connection, the political and religious parties would be contacted immediately; Maulana Fazlur Rehman said, adding "We will go till last end."

The change in the CPEC has created unrest among people and political leadership of the country. "To eliminate terrorism, there is a need to have economic prosperity in the country and struggling for such a cause is our right," the JUI-F chief explained. He claimed, "A few days back at the CPEC inauguration ceremony, we came across to certain new things on the corridor project upon which we have not been taken into confidence in the past." The CPEC is a national project, which will user in prosperity and development, so, all federating units should have benefits from it. It is the right time to tell whole truth to the people, as reservations are going high with each passing day, he said.

Regarding tough stance taken by the KP CM Pervez Khattak on the CPEC, he said that harsh tone could be used after their reservations were not removed by the Centre. In the same breath Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the KP government had not yet contacted them on the corridor issue. He said, "JUI-F is the only party which has been raising voice on the CPEC issue from day-one."About a possible change in FATA's present status, he said that they would oppose any such step that is imposed on the tribal people without taking them into confidence. "It is the best option to decide what the tribesmen want," he added. He said that the ongoing war on terror is actually an economic war between Asia and Europe.
