Defying govt’s request, PDM confirms long march on Pakistan Day


ISLAMABAD: Despite government persuasion, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has decided to continue its long march against rising inflation as scheduled on March 23 (Pakistan Day).

Before the meeting, PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said the PTI-led government had “lost its moral standing”, adding that government allies were also reluctant to cooperate due to PTI’s “anti-people policies”.

The JUI chief said that the Opposition should hold serious talks with all government-allied parties and convince them of their stance against the government.

“If all allied parties support the Opposition in the House, the motion of no confidence would not be required,” he said.

According to sources, the all-party session, under the chairmanship of the PDM chief, is considering the strategy for the long march against the rising inflation and unemployment in the country.

The meeting will also discuss the in-house reshuffle and recommendations of the PDM steering committee. It will also review the foreign funding case against the PTI and Transparency International report which was released earlier today.

PML-N leaders Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Mariyyum Aurangzeb attended the meeting, and PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif and Vice President Maryam Nawaz participated via video link.
