Defying govt’s request, PDM confirms long march on Pakistan Day

ISLAMABAD: Despite persistent persuasion by the government, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has decided to continue with the long march against rising inflation and to oust the PTI-led government as per schedule on March 23 (Pakistan Day).

PDM’s chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, speaking to the media after concluding the all-parties season, said: “The PDM will enter Islamabad [on the scheduled day] and the government knew such a big march was due on that day, so under which conspiracy did they make such recommendations?”

He went on to say that since the government is non-serious itself, it is “also treating the country’s economy in a non-serious manner.”

He added that during the session, all Opposition parties have been directed to continue with the preparations of the long march.

Fazl reiterated that the Opposition would “never allow the government to trade the freedom and sovereignty of the country.”
