DERA MURAD JAMALI: Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leaders on Sunday pledged to continue their fight until the Imran Khan-led government was toppled as it had economically ‘destroyed’ the country and plunged it into a tragedy.
They marched on the major roads and the National Highway, bearing flags, placards and posters with anti-government slogans inscribed by their groups.
Those who took part in the rally included PDM Provincial President Maulana Abdul Wasey, President of the Balochistan Branch of the Pakistan People’s Party, Mir Ali Madad Jattak, Senior Vice President of the National Party of Balochistan-Mengal Malik Abdul Wali Kakar, Mir Sadiq Umrani, Provincial President of the National Party Abdul Khaliq Baloch, Provincial President of Pakhtunkhwa M M
The PDM leaders denounced the government and its policies, speaking to members of the rally, stating that new rulers who had vowed to bring about a change in the country were bringing the people of Balochistan corpses.
They said that in the name of maintaining stability, billions of rupees were expended, but everybody could witness Balochistan’s worst law and order crisis.
“For the rulers who always take the name of the state of Madina but force the people to starve, it is a question of shame,” they said.
The PDM leaders said the public meeting today was a slap in the face of chosen rulers who had been rejected by the citizens of Nasirabad because they faced a skyrocketing price rise, while sugar, flour and other edible products were not available on the market.
“We will never surrender and give up our nationwide struggle to uphold the Constitution, the rule of law, parliamentary supremacy, democracy and the rights of the nation’s people,” the speakers said, adding that the people needed justice, but the government robbed the poor people of justice.
They said people’s lives have become complicated because of the government’s high inflation and incorrect economic policies. “People were deprived of their livelihood by making false promises of jobs and providing people with houses,” Maulana Wasey said, adding that when the Steel Mills were closed, Pakistan International Airlines was ruined.
Also speaking on the occasion were JUP Provincial President Maulana Abbas Qadri, Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Provincial General Secretary A. Mahmood Shah, Mir Nizamuddin Lehri and President Mir Bilal Khan Umrani of PPP Nasirabad.
