PPP decides to quit PDM over show-cause notices

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Monday has decided to quit the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

As per the details, PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressed a press conference today. He asked for an apology from PDM members for the decision to issue a show-cause notice to PPP. He said that his party has rejected the notice.

Bilawal said that PPP condemns the actions taken by some opposition members against their alliances. He also demanded that PDM apologizes to Awami National Party (ANP).

He said during the press conference, “There’s no such thing as a show-cause notice in any democratic movement,” “We believe in the politics of equality and respect. It’s very important that a working relationship persists between the opposition parties.”

But he also said that doors are always open for those fighting against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

The latest move comes after ANP quit PDM.

It is pertinent to mention that PPP and ANP were given the notice on April 5 for approaching government allies to ensure the appointment of Yousaf Raza Gillani.

Opposition parties Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Jamiat-e-Ulema-Islam (JUI-F) are irked after the Awami National Party (ANP) announced its separation from the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

The JUI-F and PML-N leaders reacted to the separation of ANP from PDM terming it “the most humiliating move in political history”.
