PDM’s long march postpones due to differences over resignations
Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) President Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday announced that the opposition alliance’s March 26 long march has been postponed after Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) expressed reservations over resignation from the assemblies.
“Nine parties are in favour of resignations along with long march but PPP had reservations. They will discuss this in their central executive committee meeting and will let PDM know,” he said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad flanked by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz and PPP’s Yousuf Raza Gilani.
“I didn’t want to come to the press conference, I came at everyone’s insistence and announced, what more could I say,” he said.
He further said that Pakistan Democratic Movement Alliance is still in existence.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that until the PPP conveys its decision to PDM, the “March 26 long march should be considered postponed”.
