Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has convened a meeting of heads of the multiparty alliance’s constituent parties on Nov.8 to review the prevailing political situation in the wake of allegations of treason and devise a strategy for the three upcoming public meetings in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Punjab.


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif would also address the session through a video link from London.


Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will participate in the deliberations via a video link from Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) where he has been leading his party’s campaign for the polls in the region.


His spokesman Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said Bilawal has extended his stay in GB till the polling day on Nov.15.


He confirmed that the PPP chairman would address the PDM meeting and arrangements for the video link were being finalised.


The PDM, which has already held public meetings in Gujranwala, Karachi and Quetta, is now scheduled to hold its fourth public rally in Peshawar on Nov.22, fifth in Multan on Nov.30 and the last one in Lahore on Dec.13.


The PDM leaders claim that the Dec.13 Lahore public meeting will be the "biggest gathering” in the country’s history after which the present "set-up” will no longer be able to stand against the wishes of the people of the country.


The PDM has already given the call for a long march to Islamabad in January next year to seek resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
