The Anti-government coalition Pakistan Democratic Movement PDM will be holding rally in Peshawar despite a ban on public gathering amid the second wave of the novel coronavirus.
According to the details, the district administration had already denied allowing Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to hold a public gathering on November 22.
JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the president of the alliance, maintained that the government was using the issue of coronavirus as an excuse to stop the opposition from staging its public gatherings.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in his tweet on Saturday criticized the opposition parties for insisting on holding their public meeting in Peshawar amid reports of rising Covid-19 cases.
Prime Minister Khan tweeted that “the same PDM members who had wanted a strict lockdown and criticized me earlier [are] now playing reckless politics with people’s safety”.
“They are even defying court orders and holding a jalsa when cases are rising dramatically,” PM added.

Whereas JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the president of the alliance, maintained that the government was using the issue of coronavirus as an excuse to stop the opposition from staging its public gatherings.
“This illegitimate government itself is a big corona,” the Maulana said. “We speak about Covid-19, but we should also highlight Covid-18,” he added, referring to the PTI government. “Getting rid of this government will be a major relief for the nation.”
Fazl said the organisational structure of the PDM had been completed and its anti-government movement had gathered further momentum with all the constituent parties of the alliance united on all issues.
He added that the alliance would stage a rally in Larkana on November 26 and then in Multan on November 30.
