Fazl, Nawaz ponder future PDM strategy over phone

Pakistan Democratic Movement president and chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Mian Nawaz Sharif Saturday held a telephonic conversation to ponder the future strategy of the opposition alliance’s ant-government movement, reported 24NewsHd TV channel.

Fazl inquired after Nawaz and extended his best wishes for early recovery of the latter. Both the leaders discussed political matters of mutual interest and also pondered over the future strategy of the alliance after the round of anti-government gatherings culminates in Lahore on December 13.

The PDM is holding its fourth mass gathering in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s capital Peshawar on November 22 despite a ban of holding gatherings by the government over coronavirus pandemic. The PDM has held successful rallies in Gujranwala, Karachi and Quetta and would hold two more rallies after Peshawar gathering in Multan on November 30 and in Lahore on December 13.

However, Fazl has added another destination, Larkana, on the schedule of PDM gatherings that would be held on November 26. The JUI chief made this announcement earlier during a press conference that he held to warn government against stopping the PDM rally in Peshawar.

Both the leaders discussed the different options to be considered as the next plan of action and Nawaz Sharif assured Fazl that his party was ready to act upon any decision to be taken by the PDM.

Nawaz said that he and his party would not hesitate to offer any sacrifice for the implementation of any decision that has been agreed upon on the PDM’s platform.

Earlier talking to 24NewsTV Channel in DI Khan, Fazl had hinted at a march towards Islamabad as well as the option of mass resignations from the assemblies as future options for the opposition alliance once their public mobilization campaign ends in Lahore.
