PESHAWAR: Addressing the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Maulana Fazlur Rehman, head of the anti-government opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), said that once half the House is vacated, they would have to resign.
Fazlur Rehman was addressing a function in Peshawar and later answered questions of the media, saying that 9 out of 10 parties were of the opinion that they should resign before the long march, but the PPP wanted to take up the matter with its Central Executive Committee (CEC) before making a decision.
The PDM head, while expressing indignation over media reports about the PDM meeting held yesterday, said that revealing the inside story of the meeting was sheer dishonesty.
He claimed that the anti-government alliance PDM is still united, even though differences of opinion arise sometimes, as happened yesterday.
“We are waiting for PPP to make a decision. I hope they understand, we want to keep them with us”, he said.
