The opposition alliance, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), will hold an important meeting on Saturday (today) in Karachi as it gears up to revive its campaign against the PTI-led government that had been stalled for more than a couple of months.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman will preside over the PDM meeting during which important issues including the alliance’s upcoming anti-government rally in Karachi will be discussed.
The PDM is planning to hold a rally at the Quaid’s mausoleum on Sunday (tomorrow).
PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif and leaders of the component parties of the alliance are expected to attend the meeting. Later, the PDM leaders will hold a news conference and brief the media about the decisions taken.
JUI-F spokesperson Aslam Ghauri said the Maulana will stay in Karachi for three days during which he will preside over the PDM meeting on Saturday, lead the Istahkam-e-Pakistan and Huqooq-e-Sindh rallies on Sunday and meet the JUI-F leadership on Monday.
BILAWAL WELCOMES PDM: People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has already termed the news of the PDM holding a rally in Karachi as welcome news, adding that his party had informed the PDM leaders of doing things the constitutional way.
