Islamabad: The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) announced on Saturday that it will restart the movement in more anti-government rallies and will work with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) in parliament.
This was announced after the PDM meeting held by the PML-N Islamabad Secretariat chaired by the head of PML Maulana Fazlur Rehman. Shehbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ahsan Iqbal, Aftab Sherpao, Mahmood Khan Achakzai, Mir Kabeer Shahi and Tahir Bizenjo also attended the meeting.
The meeting discussed the country’s political situation and PDM’s future strategy, and also discussed issues related to the return of PPP and ANP to PDM.
It was decided at the meeting that PDM will work hand in hand with PPP and ANP in Parliament, and the opposition parties will jointly oppose the budget meeting to expose the government’s forged figures.
After a meeting with the media, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the current government has not been developed and cannot face any emerging challenges.
He said that PDM plans to hold large protest rallies for mobilization of the public, with a rally on July 4 in Swat, July 29 in Karachi and a grand protest in Islamabad on August 14 to celebrate Independence Day.
“It will be an expression of solidarity with the people of Pakistan”, said Fazlur Rehman.
Talking about the regional situation, he said that the circumstances were alarming and called for a meeting of the Parliament on the situation in Afghanistan.
“There are rumors that Pakistan will provide airbase to American planes. Can Pakistan face the possible difficulties that may arise”, asked Fazlur Rehman while demanding an in-camera session of the Parliament to apprise the House of the country’s defense situation.
