Islamabad: The head of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Maulana Fazlur Rehman, proposed to resign from the parliament and instead join sources reported by the opposition coalition.
According to sources discussed within the opposition coalition, the head of PDM contacted PML-N Secretary-General Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and discussed the option to withdraw from the parliament.
“Besides leading long march to Islamabad, the PDM should mull over resigning from the assemblies,” the JUI-F chief said adding that the move could prove effective against the incumbent government.
Besides this, the sources said that the date of the PDM meeting to be attended by party heads has been rescheduled for March 16, contrary to an earlier schedule on March 15.
It is pertinent to mention here that the PDM has planned to take out a long march against the policies of the incumbent government.
On February 4, the Pakistani Democracy Movement (PDM), an opposition coalition composed of 11 parties, announced that it would march from Karachi to Islamabad on March 26.
JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman – who is also the head of the 11-party opposition alliance – announced the decision while briefing media about decisions taken in the hours-long meeting held in Islamabad.
