PDM ‘indecisive’ about joining hands with PPP


On Tuesday, former president Asif Ali Zardari said he didn’t think his party was rejoining the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

Speaking to media persons outside the court premises, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson said he had not thought of his party rejoining the multi-party alliance.

“I don’t know about this, my son,” Zardari said while answering a journalist who had asked whether PPP was joining hands with the PDM.

It is pertinent to mention that the PPP has announced a long march to Islamabad on February 27.

Zardari was asked whether the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) would be able to topple the Imran Khan-led PTI government. The former president recalled that Maulana Fazlur Rehman had also held similar marches in the past.

Meanwhile, the sessions court gave a pre-arrest bail to Zardari in the New York Property case.

Former president Asif Ali Zardari came to the court along with his counsel Farouk Naek.

Zardari’s comments came a day after a meeting between the PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif was held in Islamabad.

Both parties agreed to start with anti-government protests to oust the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). The meeting was organised amid news reports that PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif has agreed to an in-house change.

Zardari said he opposed the PTI government from its first day, adding that he was hopeful about in-house change. He said the government was made up of “imprudent individuals” who were not fit to rule.

According to the PPP co-chairman, Imran Khan did not have the capacity or will to facilitate people.

Separately, the PPP sent a formal invitation to Mohsin Dawar and the National Democratic Movement on behalf of Bilawal Bhutto to take part in the PPP march to the federal capital on February 27.
