The newly-launched alliance of the major Opposition parties in Pakistan on Tuesday announced that it will hold its first public rally against the Imran Khan-led government on October 11, according to media reports.
The country's main Opposition parties last week launched the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), an alliance to hold a countrywide protest movement to oust the ruling government.
A 26-point joint resolution was adopted by the All Parties Conference (APC) on September 20, which was hosted by the Pakistan Peoples Party's (PPP) and attended by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) , Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) and several other parties.
At a joint press conference after the end of the multi-party meeting, JUI-F chief Mualana Fazl ur Rehman read out the resolution and said that the Opposition parties have agreed to launch an alliance named Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to organise countrywide protests against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government from October.
The Opposition will also enlist lawyers, traders, farmers, students, media as well as members of the civil society in its movement.
In order to oust the government, opposition parties will use every legal and constitutional option in and out of parliament, which include moving no-confidence motions and collective resignations from assemblies at an appropriate time, the resolution stated.
Meanwhile Pakistan's Leader of the Opposition and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Chief Shahbaz Sharif,  the younger brother of three-time former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was sent on a 14-day physical remand yesterday by court in assets beyond means and money laundering case, a day after he was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in Lahore.
Nawaz Sharif, who has been in London since November 2019  strongly reacted to his brother's arrest.
In a tweet, Nawaz said, Shahbaz's arrest is unjustifiable and unacceptable.
Earlier, while addressing the conference of opposition parties via video link from London, Nawaz Sharif talked about the Army's involvement in politics, saying in Pakistan there is a state above the state.
