Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Chairman Fazlur Rehman said on Monday the nation would now march on Rawalpindi instead of Islamabad. 

Addressing an anti-government rally in Malakand under the banner of the PDM, an alliance of 11 opposition parties currently trying to topple the federal government led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Fazl said he had all the respect for the army, but its leadership must clarify if it is impartial or it stands by Prime Minister Imran Khan. He said the prime minister was openly saying that the army stood behind him. He said the prime minister lied to the Hazara community of Quetta that he visited the Balochistan capital to see them. 

The PDM chief said the opposition would send the illegitimate and incompetent government of Prime Minister Imran Khan home. He said that Pakistan was under an undeclared martial law today, but the PDM would fight for people’s rights. He said that construction at Bani Gala was being legalised. 

Fazl said the PDM would take out a rally in Karachi on January 19 against Israel. He said the PDM would also stage a protest against the government outside the office of the Election Commission of Pakistan on January 19. He said the incumbent government was involved in massive corruption, but the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) would not take action against it. He said that conspiracies were being hatched against the constitution of Pakistan and rights of the provinces.
