Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Sunday that given the “lack of unity and synchronization” in the first Pakistani Democracy Movement (PDM) rally in Gujranwala, the new opposition The alliance is unnatural and temporary.
Addressing a press conference in Multan, the foreign minister said that people have this impression because the Opposition parties neither have the same flag, a central leadership, nor the same manifesto — which is imperative for any political movement to accomplish its agenda.
“Opposition does not have a magic wand to solve problems. If they really wanted to solve the problems [that plague Pakistan], they would have done so the past,” the minister said, maintaining that the people holding different point of views and agendas have only united now because they are scared of the consequences of what they did in the past.
He said that many political leaders who stood on the stage during the opposition rally believed that their “political career was very bleak”, and that “old players who lost access to Imran Khan” are now talking about responsibilities on the stage. .
Qureshi emphasized that the government has no intention of becoming an obstacle to the planned demonstrations of the opposition party. He said that the PTI regime does not believe in conspiring against political movements.
“People are now questioning PPP Chairman [Bilawal Bhutto Zardari] on what was he able to achieve during his 12 years of rule in Sindh when he talks about toppling the government,” the minister said while referring to Bilawal’s speech at the Gujranwala jalsa.
