PDM to march against inflation

LAHORE: The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has decided to launch a decisive campaign against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, which will culminate in a long march against inflation from Lahore to Islamabad.

The opposition alliance leaders vowed continuing protest until Imran Khan is sent packing.

The decisions were made in PDM virtual meeting with its chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman in the chair. Leaders of all political parties of the PDM attended the meeting. The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) was represented by former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The meeting took stock of the overall political and socioeconomic situation of the country, skyrocketing inflation, NAB Ordinance, government recommended election reforms and various other issues facing the country. Former prime minister and PMLN supremo Nawaz Sharif also participated in virtual meeting through video link.

The meeting rejected the unprecedented increase in prices of sugar, flour, medicines, electricity, gas, petrol and other essential commodities, and demanded an immediate reversal of the prices, along with provision of true relief to people.
