PPP asks its members to resign from PDM

Monitoring Desk:

The Central Executive Committee (CEC) of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has asked its members to resign from the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). Addressing a news conference after the CEC meeting on Monday, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the Chairman PPP said no party should impose its own agenda on his party.

He said the CEC had rejected the show-cause notice issued to the PPP by other PDM parties and “directed all its office-bearers in the PDM to submit their resignations from these offices with immediate effect in protest of the attitude, conduct and actions of other office-bearers of the PDM”.

According to Bilawal, the CEC maintained that resignations from the assemblies should be an “atom bomb, last resort” option.

“That is and will remain our stance, we think that this stance has proven to be correct, that we must not abandon parliament, the electoral battleground, it has been vindicated,” he said, adding that PDM had exposed the government by taking part in the recent by-polls.

On Sunday, as the CEC meeting started, Bilawal tore apart the show-cause notice issued to it by the PDM in a clear message to the alliance that the future relied entirely on mutual respect.

The PDM already suffered a blow last week when the Awami National Party quit it over “its hijacking by some member parties”.

The CEC was scheduled to conclude by the sunset on Sunday, but as discussions on multiple issues prolonged the sitting at Bilawal House, there was consensus among 50 party leaders attending the meeting from across the country to continue the session till Monday (today).
