Former President Asif Zardari and Chief of Jamiat Ulema e Islam (F) Fazlur Rehman agreed to maintain the PDM alliance.
According to sources, PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman telephoned former president Asif Ali Zardari in which the two leaders agreed to maintain the PDM alliance.
Sources said that the two leaders also agreed to continue consultations to resolve their differences.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman requested Asif Zardari to convene a meeting of the PPP Central Executive Committee soon, to which Asif Zardari informed him that the CEC meeting will be held on April 4.
The sources further said that the two leaders also discussed issues related to the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate in which they also agreed to approach the court soon on the issue of the defeat of Yousuf Raza Gilani.
Sources said that after contacting Asif Zardari, Maulana also contacted Nawaz Sharif.
Earlier, President of Jamiat Ulema e Islam (F) and chief of anti-government alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Maulana Fazlur Rahman held a telephonic conversation with the former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League (N) Supremo Nawaz Sharif.
During the talk, the PDM chief discussed the strategies to oust Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) government. He also discussed the conversation held between Maryam Nawaz and Asif Zardi with Nawaz Sharif.
PDM Chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman said that he is disheartened by the undemocratic behaviour of Asif Ali Zardari.
It should be noted that on Tuesday, the Pakistan Democratic Movement Chief announced to postpone the long march against the government.
After the PDM meeting, Maulana Fazlur Rehman while addressing a press conference said that if the principles of democracy were followed, the decision of the majority would have been in favour of resignation. Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that 9 out of 10 parties of the PDM have agreed on resignations, however only the PPP has expressed reservations in this regard. “The PPP is a democratic party and hopefully, it will abide by democratic principles,” said Maulana.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that they are not here to make big speeches but for the people of Pakistan.
To make the right decision for the people of Pakistan is more important than mentioning the sacrifices of our elders here, Fazl said. “If I recount the sacrifices of my forefathers for the Muslim Ummah, all listeners will weep,” he added.
