The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)- the umbrella organization of opposition parties in Pakistan- has failed to reach a consensus on the mass resignation of their members from assemblies before the proposed long march to unseat incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

According to a report in Dawn, the Pakistan Peoples Party  (PPP) , which heads the government in Sindh province hasn’t agreed on the plan. The leader of the PDM, Maulana Fazlur Rahman, has reportedly expressed anguish over the PPP decision, accusing it of not respecting the will of nine other parties of the movement. 

Reports in the media, quoting other leaders of the movement, stated that the PPP wasn’t serious about implementing the agenda of the movement that is unseating the Imran Khan-led PTI government. Others accused it of having some form of “understanding” with the ruling establishment. 

The PPP, on the other hand, rubbished these charges. They said the PDM failed to provide a “clear roadmap” once the members resign. 

PPP General Secretary Nayyar Bokhari, speaking to Dawn, said the party had asked about the strategy and roadmap the movement would adopt after the resignation of the members. They failed to answers our queries. 

He said it was wrong to blame the party. The PPP, he claimed, is still committed to following the PDM declaration and the action plan as agreed in September last year.
