Opposition alliance PDM chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman announced on Wednesday that it will table a no-confidence motion against the PTI-led government within the next 48 hours.

During an informal conversation with journalists, the PDM and JUI-F chief said that the next two or three days are crucial and will bring good news.

Fazal said that the opposition is united and there is no point of contention amongst them. 

“Opposition parties are now trusting each other and are in contact with each other,” he said.

Regarding the success of the no-confidence motion, the PDM chief told a news channel that it would succeed as there was no disagreement among the opposition parties, adding that he was 100 percent confident of success. 

The PDM chief went on to say that the opposition has completed its “homework” as well.

He said that the PDM has gathered enough numbers to make the motion a success, adding that “all opposition parties unitedly want to bring down the government.”

“However, there have been no talks about the government that will be made after the fall of the incumbent government,” he added.

He said that the opposition has asked all its lawmakers to reach Islamabad quickly.

The PDM chief said that the opposition hasn’t received any support from the “umpire”, adding that they were not in contact with the establishment.

However, it seemed that the umpire was “neutral,” he added.

“I don’t know if the PML-N or the PPP are in contact with the establishment,” he clarified.

Fazal was unwilling to share details when he was asked about what will happen after the no-trust motion is passed.

“Should we tell you everything beforehand?” the PDM chief asked and added that there has been no talk about establishing the next government. 

Earlier, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Fazal had agreed to a joint strategy in the parliament against the government. 

PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari had also assured Fazal of his complete support for the no-trust motion to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Last month, the opposition had announced that it would move a no-confidence motion against the incumbent PTI government.

Since the announcement, the opposition has started contacting the allies of the PTI government and disgruntled members of the ruling party.

Three main opposition leaders Asif Zardari, Fazal, and Shehbaz have also held multiple meetings to develop a strategy on the motion.
