Marred by mismanagement, the much-hyped Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) rally at Lahore’s Minar-e-Pakistan monument concluded on Sunday without presenting a clear action plan for taking the anti-government movement to its next phase.

JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman – who is also the head of the 11-party opposition alliance – however, did announce a long march on Islamabad in a bid to dislodge the PTI led federal government but stopped short of giving a specific date for it.

The sixth PDM power show – held in what is regarded as the bastion of the PMLN, the largest opposition party – was earlier dubbed as a referendum against the federal government, which, the PDM claims, came into power in the wake of a rigged polls in July 2018 But contrary to the expectations, Lahore rally – also hosted by the PML-N – was not as impressive.
