PDM announces new round of anti-government rallies across Pakistan
Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a 11-party opposition alliance, on Monday announced its new round of anti-government rallies across the country with first rally in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on February 5.
After a meeting of the PDM steering committee in Islamabad, PDM Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that they will hold its first rally of the new phase in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on February 5.
Rehman said the next rally will be held in Hyderabad on February 9 and it will be followed by another public gathering in Sialkot on February 13.
The PDM has announced the protest as it has demanded the resignation of Imran Khan by January 31.
Rehman further said that the foreign funding case against the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government has been under trial for the past couple of years but the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has yet to announce a verdict.
Accusing Imran Khan of seeking the biggest National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) in the foreign funding case, the PDM chief said “Foreign funding case is the biggest scandal in the country’s history and Imran Khan is the main accused in the case.”
