Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) President Maulana Fazlur Rehman telephoned PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif and the three leaders agreed to intensify the anti-government movement, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

The telephonic calls made by Fazlur Rehman are part of informal consultations among coalition leaders before the February 4 summit meeting of the PDM leaders.

The informal consultations were completed and all three PDM bigwigs agreed to move forward the anti-government movement ‘aggressively’.

Reportedly, Fazl, Nawaz and Zardari decided to use the option of a long march, sit-in and resignations to overthrow the incumbent government of PTI.

Fazlur Rehman later in an informal conversation with journalists in Lahore said the PDM is not negotiating with the government or the establishment and if anyone wants to talk to the PDM, they first fulfil demands. 

“There is an option of no-confidence but it was floated by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) but it does not seem to be followed further,” Fazlur Rehman said. 

Fazl said the PPP has been asked to take other parties into confidence on the issue of no-confidence motion against the government.  

The PDM leaders also discussed the upcoming Senate elections and it has been proposed to contest polls jointly.

Fazl explained that there may be different positions of all parties but the decisions are joint and unanimous. “I remain in contact with Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari and both leaders fully agree that the government should leave.”

He said Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari's approach may be different but the goal is the same.
