Opposition to hold countrywide protests from Oct 20: Fazl

Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday announced that the Opposition will hold countrywide protests and rallies from October 20.
Speaking to the media in Islamabad, he reiterated that the Opposition has completely rejected the National Accountability (NAB) Ordinance 2021.
“The institute of NAB has always been used against the Opposition,” Rehman said, adding that he has no hope of accountability from NAB.
Rejecting the electoral reforms, Rehman said that the electronic voting machine (EVM) is another name for the old results transmission system (RTS).
“The government which has come into power as a result of rigging has no right to give a formula for free and fair elections in the country,” the PDM chief said.
Shedding light on the Afghanistan issues, he said that borders with Afghanistan and Iran have been closed, which is affecting people living on the border.
“Borders with Afghanistan and Iran should be opened immediately for trade,” Rehman demanded.
“Our demand is to hold a general election,” he reiterated, adding that unless there are transparent general elections in the country, there is no justification for local body elections.
He announced that there will be rallies, protests and wheel-jam strikes starting from October 20.
“PDM wants a democratic and constitutional system in the country,” he said. “We have to work hard and stand firm, the result is in the hands of Allah.”
