PESHAWAR- An all parties conference organized by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) in Peshawar today emphasized the need to protect the 1973 Constitution.

A communiqué issued after the conference said those protesting in Islamabad should call off their strike as their major demands have been accepted by the government. The conference demanded independent investigation into allegations of rigging in 2013 general elections. It said the IDPs should be allowed to go back to the areas cleared of the militants.
