PDM postpones long march

Monitoring Desk :

The Pakistan Democratic Party (PDM) has announced postponement of long march amid differences over resignations.

Addressing a press conference after an hours-long meeting of the PDM in Islamabad, Rehman said the PPP had “reservations” over linking the resignations with the long march, and had sought time to hold consultations within its Central Executive Committee (CEC) before informing the PDM of its decision.

“We have given them the chance and we will await their decision. Until then, the March 26 long march will be considered postponed,” Rehman said.

Earlier, PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari during the meeting asked PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to return to Pakistan before the joint opposition can go with the nuclear option of resigning from the assemblies in order to mount pressure on the PTI-led government, according to sources and media reports.
