Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman Tuesday asked all the political workers to reach the federal capital on the evening of March 25.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad after the meeting of the opposition parties Fazl said that it has been decided that all the convoys across the country will reach Islamabad on March 25 due to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) foreign ministers' meeting.

"The OIC's (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) foreign ministers are our guests and it is our duty to respect them as they will remain in Islamabad till March 24."

The PDM chief, earlier on Monday, had asked all the political workers to "march" towards Islamabad on March 23.

Fazl in today's press conference noted that the opposition did not "wish" for problems to arise for the OIC foreign ministers during their stay in Pakistan.

"The rallies should refrain from entering Islamabad on March 23," Fazl said.

In response to a question about Speaker Punjab Assembly Pervaiz Elahi's statement, Fazl said the allies will be separated from the government as they can no longer stay with the government.
