PDM will hold two public rallies in November. The rallies will be organised in Peshawar on 22 November and in Multan on November 30. The opposition will hold its last public rally in Lahore December.

The opposition alliance PDM has already announced to organise a long march towards Islamabad in January to stage a sit-in.  

The Steering Committee of PDM also announced its office bearers. The chief of JUI-F Maulana Fazal Ur Rahman will be first president of opposition alliance. Former Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf of PPP will be senior vice president of PDM. PML-N senior leader and former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will be secretary general of PDM. Senior leader of ANP Mian Iftikharudin will be secretary information and spokesman of PDM. 

       

PDM leaders told the media after the steering committee meeting that “finally, a massive gathering will be held in Lahore, after which this fake set up will not be able to stand on its feet and the nation will announce that they want the rule of Constitution and law in the country.”

PDM leaders said that the meeting also condemned the first information report (FIR) lodged against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and other PML-N leaders. The PML-N leader alleged that the government has damaged the Kashmir cause by implicating Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider in the FIR.

The FIR alleges that the former prime minister, in his speeches, supported the policies of India, and claimed that Nawaz wanted to give the impression that Pakistan will be listed in the Financial Action Task Force's (FATF) grey list in its upcoming meeting.
