Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Friday that the opposition alliance has decided to bring a no-confidence motion against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

“We will first do our homework, so we cannot talk about the definite timeframe for this move,” he said while addressing the media after a meeting of the alliance.

Talking to the media along with opposition leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, Fazl said that the PDM has announced the no-trust motion at this stage “because we have a firm intention of doing so.”

The PDM chief said that the alliance would try to get the government's allied parties on board in order to get a voting majority in the National Assembly to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan through a no-confidence motion.

"We will ask them [coalition partners of PTI government] to have some mercy on the people of Pakistan the way they have been dealt with [by the current regime] during the last few years,” he added.

He said that a committee would also be constituted to contact the government's allies. The members of the committee would be announced later.

Fazl said that the PDM will not contact a single PTI member in this regard. "However, we will welcome any member who contacts us."

To a question about the long march next month, Fazl said that it will take place as planned and that the PDM's steering committee will chalk out a plan.

The meeting in Model Town was attended by Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Shahbaz Sharif, Hamza Shahbaz, Maryam Nawaz, Akram Durrani, Rana Sanaullah, Khawaja Saad Rafique and other leaders of different parties.

The meeting of the opposition alliance discussed various issues while Maryam Nawaz and Shehbaz Sharif had also arranged a dinner.
