PAKISTAN NEWS: Pakistani protesters are preparing for their sixth anti-government protest in Lahore

The PDM is expected to announce a ‘decisive phase’ of its struggle against the Pakistani government Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led by the Prime Minister at a public rally, reports Dawn.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a coalition of 11 of the country’s main opposition parties, is set to hold a major power show in Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore on Sunday, marking the final stage of the first anti-government rallies.

The PDM is expected to announce a ‘decisive phase’ of its struggle against the Pakistani government Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led by the Prime Minister at a public rally, reports Dawn.

Prior to the Lahore coalition conference, the Pakistani unity government had adopted measures of despair to prevent the movement from continuing.

Last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan issued a law that it is possible for the government to give the PDM permission to hold anti-government rallies, warning that activists would be prosecuted.

“We will put FIRS against everyone – from kursi wala to sound executives but they will not stop [opposition leaders] from going there,” he said in an interview, Geo News reported.

The Prime Minister also accused opponents of distributing Covid-19 in the country.

Several political activists were booked and arrested before the meeting, while the PTI government filled the grassroots of Minar-e-Pakistan in a ‘failed attempt’ to suspend the upcoming meeting.

The arrests were handed down by SCBA President Latif Afridi and former president Syed Qalbe Hassan on Saturday and demanded the immediate release of all PDM staff.

Commenting on the evacuation of water in the area, Dawn quoted Pakistani Muslim League League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president Maryam Nawaz as saying on Twitter: The Lahore summit will be held and the government will be repatriated. ”

This is the first time in the country’s recent history that the PML-N will hold a public meeting in Minar-e-Pakistan, the first meeting in the area of ​​the de-facto president of PML-N, Maryam Nawaz, reports Dawn.

It will also be the first appearance of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari at a political rally in Lahore, who said his party was fighting for democracy in Pakistan.

“We will bring back true democracy in Pakistan. We want people to decide on economic policy and other national policies. We want people to decide their own future. We will install a people’s government after removing this doll and the elected government. We will build a government that will deliver on the promises of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, ”Dawn quoted the PPP chairperson as saying.

“No matter what Prime Minister Khan’s forced government does, Sunday’s public meeting will happen anyway,” said PML-N Information Secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb.

On Saturday, PML-N workers arrived in Minar-e-Pakistan, broke down the locks of their main gate and set up chairs and installed lights on the floor. Other PML-N leaders also visited the area and reviewed arrangements.

Meanwhile, Punjab Prime Minister Usman Buzdar has called on the PDM to delay the Lahore summit due to “fear threats” and the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

The coalition is also reportedly planning a long march in February if the PTI government ignores pressure from the opposition. However, there appears to be no consensus on resignation from national and provincial meetings, as the Pakistan Peoples ’Party (PPP) has refused to leave the Sindh government, according to Dawn.

The chief executive of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said the next phase of the PDM struggle would begin in January with the PDM organizing another 16 meetings.

The PDM has held five meetings in Multan, Peshawar, Gujranwala, Karachi and Quetta since October 16.
