PDM announces long march towards Islamabad

News Desk :

Chief of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Maulana Fazal ur Rehman has announced to launch a long march towards Islamabad at the end of January or the beginning of February 2021. Addressing the sixth public meeting of the anti-government alliance, the PDM chief said the opposition parties would march toward Islamabad carrying resignations to what he called to get rid of selected rulers.

The much-hyped decisive Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) power show is underway in Lahore. Leaders of all component parties have reached Lahore to address the public meeting of the anti-democratic alliance.

Maryam Nawaz, the Vice-President Pakistan Muslim League (N) reached the greater Iqbal Park as a host of the public meeting. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), PDM Chief Maulana Fazal ur Rehman and other leaders have also reached the venue of the public meeting. All key leaders of the alliance have reached the public meeting.

The ground is jam-packed with supporters of the anti-government alliance waving their party flags. The workers of the component parties of the PDM also chanting slogans against the government.

However, the ruling party’s spokesman Shehbaz Gill claimed the number of people inside the Jalsa was from 5,000 to 6,000. He asserted that the masses have rejected the anti-government alliance.

This is the first time in the recent history of the country that the PML-N is holding a public meeting at Minar-i-Pakistan, the first rally at this venue for PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz.

Similarly, it is PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s first appearance at a political gathering at Minar-i-Pakistan. His late mother, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, held a historic public meeting at Minar-i-Pakistan in 1986.

PML-N Vice President Maryam thanked Lahore’s residents for attending the public meeting in overwhelming numbers. Without naming the prime minister, Maryam said that someone had “challenged PDM in Pharoah’s tone” to gather enough people to fill up Minar-i-Pakistan’s grounds, adding that today participants of the public meeting had filled up adjoining streets as well.

She said Lahore welcomed Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan as a “real brother”.

“No one is big or small, we are all equal,” Maryam declared.

She said that for the past three years the prime minister — whom she referred to as ‘Tabedar (obedient) Khan’ — had been saying that he will not grant an NRO. Maryam insisted that today the prime minister was seeking an NRO from Nawaz Sharif and the people.

Addressing the rally, Awami National Party Ameer Haider Khan Hoti condemned the ruling PTI and said that about 80 years ago, Bacha Khan had started a non-violent struggle for his nation’s rights but he was termed as a traitor.

Hoti declared that terrorism was “imposed upon the Pakhtun people” saying, “Pakhtun people were the ones who were killed and were defamed as well”. He added that there were “conspiracies” to lead Afghan peace talks towards failure and efforts to “create misunderstandings between Afghanistan and Pakistan”.
