PESHAWAR: Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday said that the opposition parties’ anti-inflation protest on March 23 will bring down Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, Aaj News reported.
Addressing a press conference in Peshawar, Fazl said that the government has brought inflation, poverty and economic instability to the country.
Criticizing the mini-budget, he said the state bank will go under the custody of International Monetary Fund (IMF) and that the government will have to take the debts from commercial banks.
PDM has never considered PPP and ANP its rival parties, Fazl said, adding that he along with Shehbaz Sharif will lead mass demonstrations against the government in Islamabad.
He said that the victory of Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) in the first phase of the local government elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) was a clear indication that the incumbent government had lost people’s confidence, and that masses now wanted to get rid of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government.
He claimed that the second phase of LG polls will prove to be even more devastating for the ruling party.
To a question about PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif'S return, he said that it was Nawaz's country, and he should return to Pakistan to take this movement forward.
