Staff Reporter – Lahore:
Following a power show in Karachi, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has convened a meeting of the heads of the alliance’s component parties on September 8 in Islamabad, sources.
Sources privy to the development said that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif will also attend the important meeting via video link.
Long march, speeding up PDM’s ongoing anti-government drive and various strategies to topple the incumbent government will be discussed in the meeting, the sources said.
A schedule of public rallies and the road caravan routes will be finalised at the PDM meeting.
It is pertinent to mention here that this will be PDM’s second meeting in two weeks as the opposition alliance gears up to revive its anti-government campaign that had stalled over the past couple of months.
On Sunday, the PDM, in its first power show in months, at Karachi’s Bagh-e-Jinnah, had declared that its campaign is very much alive, and called upon the people to “rise and bring a revolution”.
The Opposition alliance had said it will “bury the government with a tide of people that will storm Islamabad”.
PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who was the last to address the rally, had said that the three-year performance of the PTI has revealed how the government has turned the state and the people “insecure”.
