Opposition Parties in Pakistan Launches Alliance To Oust PM Imran Khan
Islamabad : Seeking the immediate resignation of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the major opposition parties of the country have formed a nationwide protest to topple his government. A 26-point resolution was accepted at the all-party conference on Sunday. The conference was attended by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JUI-F) and several other parties. The conference was hosted by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
In a joint press conference after an all-party meeting, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman read the proposal and said that opposition parties have agreed to form an alliance under the name Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) so that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party countrywide protests could be started against the government of October.
It is being said that a nationwide protest against the Imran Khan government could begin after the event is organized. Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also attended the conference, though he made his presence known through video conferencing. Nawaz Sharif has been ill for a long time and is being treated at a London hospital. Apart from Nawaz, Pakistan People’s Party Vice President Asif Ali Zardari also became a part of the program through video conferencing. PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto initiated the meeting.
In this meeting, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that this struggle is not against Imran Khan but against those who have given power to Imran Khan. Nawaz Sharif said that our priority is to topple the present government because Imran Khan has been brought to power by disturbing the election.
Nawaz further said that Imran Khan is ruining the country. If this government is not toppled today, when will it be dropped? At the same time, according to the local media of Pakistan, the cases of rape in Pakistan have increased and the opposition has united due to fear of FTF action on not stopping the funding of terrorists. The opposition in Pakistan wants to agitate against the speaker of parliament.
During this time, the all-party conference also adopted the 26-point joint resolution, which was led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). It was alleged in this conference that the Imran Khan government had been provided with fake stability by the same establishment, which intervened in elections to bring the current regime to power.
The proposal calls for holding elections again in a transparent manner in the country. Accordingly, protests will be held across the country in two phases.
