ISLAMABAD: At the conclusion of the APC organised by PPP here at Marriott today (20th of Sept.) opposition parties demanded immediate resignation of PM Imran Khan. 

The 26-point resolution passed by the participants was read out by JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman: The forum is named Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) — an “alliance structure which will lead and guide nationwide protests against the anti-public and anti-nation government in a disciplined and integrated manner”.

It is maintained in the Resolution that the incumbent PTI-led government had been granted fake stability by the same establishment that interfered with the elections to bring the present rulers to power.

Increasing influence of the establishment had also been mentioned noted by the PDM. It has been warned that such interference in the internal affairs could be fatal of the country and its institutions. The Forum demanded holding of fair and transparent polls.

Forum termed Parliament a rubber stamp and proclaimed that the opposition would not  cooperate with the government in the legislative process.

PDM demanded that a new law of accountability be passed in Pakistan that is in accordance with the Supreme Court’s verdict and recommendations from Human Rights Watch and Council of Islamic Ideology and would hold everyone accountable, including bureaucrats, lawmakers, judicial and officials of the armed forces.

Forum said that Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa’s assets and family business should be probed and he should be removed as the chairman of CPEC Authority until the probe is completed.

A 6-point action plan has also been agreed upon to depose the incumbent government, which would be implemented in phases. In the first phase that starts in October, opposition parties will hold joint rallies in all four provinces.

The second phase is scheduled to commence in the month December (2020) during which the opposition will hold huge public demonstrations across the country. In the month of January 2021, the opposition will set out on a decisive long march vers capital.

It was decided that lawyers, traders, farmers, students, media as well as members of the civil society should join hands in order to oust the government.

It has been decided that the opposition parties will use every legal and constitutional option in and out of parliament, which include moving no-confidence motions and collective resignations from assemblies at an appropriate time. | YouTube Channel
