Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Secretary General Nayyar Hussain Bukhari has said that the PPP will not hold any talks owing to the attitude of JUI-F supremo and PDM President Maulana Fazlur Rehman and PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The PPP has flatly refused to talk to Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). It emerged a day after the anti-government alliance held a meeting that announced more protest rallies. 

In a statement issued on Sunday Nayyar Bukhari also announced that no talks can be held with PDM representative Shehbaz Sharif. “It is a question mark that PML-N with over 160 members had not resigned from the Punjab Assembly,” the PPP leader said.

He claimed that PDM President Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Maryam Nawaz do not want to send the current rulers home. “The PPP voted for Shehbaz Sharif for the opposition. The so-called PDM leadership neither want a long march nor do they want to run any protest movement,” former chairman Senate and PPP leader Nayyar Bukhari said. 

Challenging the PDM, Nayyar Bukhari said, “There was no decision to link the resignations with the long march. The decision by two the parties damaged the PDM goals.”

He said that PPP abided by the charter and action plan of the PDM.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement has decided to launch a fresh movement against the government without PPP and ANP. The PMD held a meeting in Islamabad Saturday to discuss the challenges facing Pakistan and the situation of the region.
