ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) on Monday decided to hold an anti-inflation march in the Federal Capital on March 23 — Pakistan Day — in light of the “government’s failures” on several fronts.
PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, addressing a press conference after a summit of the party chiefs, said: “People from across the country will gather in Islamabad. A huge protest will be held in the [capital] against inflation.”
“As a result of the 2018 elections, a government was formed without the mandate of the people.”
“A government which came into existence through rigging […] is facing failure, but the people are bearing the brunt of it in the form of inflation, poverty, unemployment, and restlessness,” he said.
