In a meeting of government spokespersons and party leaders held today, Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again asked the PDM to suspend their rallies due to the worsening coronavirus situation in Pakistan.
The Prime Minister also said that the coronavirus situation was worsening day by day.
Speaking at the WEF earlier last week, he said that one difference between the first wave and the second wave of the pandemic in the country has been that the opposition parties are not cooperating this time.
The PDM, however, has rejected the government’s demands despite PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and close allies are contracting the virus, and his sister Bakhtawar Bhutto’s engagement ceremony being held under strict coronavirus SOPs.
PDM takes no notice of growing corona cases
The PDM has said that it will hold rallies all over the city of Multan if impeded in its attempts to hold a large jalsa at Qila Qasim Bagh on November the 30th.
The Prime Minister further lamented the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is simply there to put pressure on the government and protect their looted wealth.
However, the rallies are detrimental to the public, he said further, without having any political consequences. “No matter how many rallies they conduct, they will not be given an NRO,” he added.
He said that due to personal interests, the Opposition does not care about the public.
He called out PMLN leader Nawaz Sharif out on hiding in London while the public was being left at the mercy of the virus.

The entire world is engaged in a fight with the pandemic, the Premier explained, but the PDM is making a mockery of the public by holding large public gatherings.
The government has suspended a large jalsa scheduled to be held in Rashakai, the Special Economic Zone that is of great regional importance to Pakistan.
He termed the PDM’s activities as ‘anti-people.’
“It would only harm the public and the economy, not the government,” the premier maintained.
