Opposition legislators to submit their resignations to party chiefs by Dec 31

News Desk :

Chief of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Maulana Fazal ur Rehman on Tuesday said the opposition legislators would submit their resignations to party chiefs by December 31st.

Talking to reporters after the anti-government alliance’s meeting in Islamabad about the future strategy, Maulana said rulers have to go and the opposition has decided in principle to mount pressure on them.

“By December 31, opposition lawmakers from provincial and national assemblies will hand in their resignations to their respective party heads.” He said that the steering committee will meet tomorrow to decide the schedule for further rallies and demonstrations. The meeting will also decide the time and the date for the long march towards Islamabad, he said.

The PDM chief said that former premier Nawaz Sharif and former president Asif Ali Zardari also participated in the meeting during which all the participants expressed the commitment towards holding the next rally in Lahore on December 13.

Responding to reports about Prime Minister Imran Khan calling for a national dialogue, the Maulana said the PDM had rejected his offer. “He is not worthy of dialogue.”

He said that the decisions were taken “unanimously”, adding that the opposition will not disappoint the people of the country. “The Lahore rally will be historic and it will be the final nail [in the coffin] for the government.”
