Islamabad: Federal Information Minister Senator Shibli Faraz has said Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) hollow threats of resignation have been exposed as the deadline of January 31st has passed.
Taking to twitter, the federal information minister said that people are now aware of the fact that the resignation threat of opposition was based on self-interest and lust for power.
“Nefarious designs and conspiracies of opposition failed miserably after people rejected their narrative and supported a democratically elected government,” he said.
پی ڈی ایم کی31جنوری کی ڈیڈ لائن گزر گئی، استعفے دینے کی کھوکھلی دھمکی بھی آشکار ہوگئی۔ قوم کو پتہ چل گیا کہ ان کا ایجنڈا ذاتی مفاد اور ہوس اقتدار ہے۔ اپوزیشن کی حسرتیں اور سازشیں دم توڑ گئیں۔ عوام نے اپوزیشن کے ہرقول و فعل کو یکسر مسترد کر کے منتخب جمہوری حکومت کا ساتھ دیا۔— Senator Shibli Faraz (@shiblifaraz) February 1, 2021
It is pertinent to mention here that opposition’s alliance, also known as PDM, had given Prime Minister Imran Khan a deadline of January 31st to resign, with the warning of resignations from national and provincial assemblies to oust Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government.
PDM is protesting against the incumbent government against what it terms rigging in general elections of 2018.
