PDM To Show Cards At The Right Time, says Fazl
PESHAWAR: Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the opposition parties’ alliance stands united and they will show their cards at the right time.
Speaking to the media in Peshawar, the PDM chief said that the government has no cause for celebration, adding the PDM is moving forward with an effective strategy.
The PDM chief’s statement comes after the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) suggested that the government should be ousted through a no-confidence motion, while the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) rejected the idea.
Taking a jibe at the government, he said that the rulers have been fools and will continue to make fools of themselves. He said that the rulers seem to be indifferent to their future, adding that it is a dark future that awaits them.
Fazlur Rehman said that with the dissolution of the Sindh Assembly, the electoral college still remains intact which is why the opposition parties decided to take part in the by-polls and the Senate elections. “We contested every by-election,” he said, adding that historically the true opinion of the people has always come forth in by-polls.
The PDM chief alleged that the public’s opinion was changed during the 2018 general elections, and the election and its results are what the opposition has been protesting. “Why were such individuals given the reins of power who had no right to rule?” he questioned.
On the foreign policy front, he said that the country faces humiliation due to the incumbent government’s policies, stressing that handing over the government to the real representatives of the people has become inevitable.
Moreover, the PDM chief said that the Broadsheet LLC case has exposed the government’s performance and that the nation has suffered a great loss due to it. Urging people to unite against the government, Fazl said that everyone must come together as a nation to resolve the country’s issues.
Transparency International has “exposed the corruption” of the government, he said, adding that corruption has “increased in the country”.
Speaking about the Opposition’s future public gatherings, he said that they would observe Kashmir Day on February 5 in Muzaffarabad and hold a rally in Hyderabad on February 9. TLTP
