Ahead of the upcoming Senate Elections on March 3, political contacts intensified between the Pakistan Democratic Movement-leadership.
On Sunday (today), meeting between (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman took place. Both the leaders agreed that in the case of Yousuf Raza Gilani’s victory on the Senate seat from Islamabad, they would bring a no-confidence motion in the Parliament.
“A final consultation in this regard will be made after the success of the PDM’s candidate Yousuf Raza Gilani,” they said.
Speaking to the media alongside PPP Chairperson, Fazlur Rehman said the leadership meetings would be held immediately after the Senate elections and a new strategy would be worked out and clarified.
“The PDM is the only voice of the people across the country and getting rid of such rulers [incumbent government] will be a service to the people of Pakistan,” Maulana Fazl said.
“God willing, successful results will come out of the Senate elections,” he added.
Fazl further added that there was “an atmosphere of hopelessness in the ranks of the PTI government.”
He added that with regard to the rampant inflation of Pakistan, the PDM was the “only voice of the people.”
“When there is no peace, such rulers will be considered a failure,” he emphasized.
The JUI-F boss lauded the anti-government coalition, saying it was operating “very successfully as a movement”.
In addition, Bilawal Bhutto said the PDM had challenged the PTI regime “on every front” and wished to send a message through the upcoming Senate election 2021.
“We will be successful in our mission,” he stressed. “We have prepared for both the open ballot and secret ballot method” in the Senate elections, he added.
Bilawal vowed to go to the PTI government’s home base and challenge it there. “We will also give a tough time to the government in KP,” he added.
“The PML-N seats won from Punjab will benefit us in electing the Senate chairperson and these votes will be very important,” he added.
“The MQM-P was elected from Karachi but the federal government left Karachi orphaned. We have talked to the MQM-P, members of the PTI government, and other allies of the regime.
“We hope that the Supreme Court will rule in accordance with the Constitution and the law,” Bilawal added.
