Lahore: Opposition parties have agreed upon calling an ‘All Parties Conference’ (APC) after Eidul Azha in order to discuss strategies to “get rid of this government”, PPP and PML-N leaders announced on Monday.
Leaders from the PPP and PMLN said they had agreed that the Khan government had failed to deliver on its promises to the masses.
During a press conference, Qamar Zaman Kaira and Ahsan Iqbal, senior leaders of the PPP and PML-N, respectively, said that a joint opposition coordination committee meeting will be held this week and after consulting all parties, an APC will be held after Eid.
Kaira and Iqbal were speaking to journalists after a meeting between PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and a three-member PML-N delegation at Bilawal House, Lahore. The PML-N delegation included Iqbal, Khawaja Saad Rafique and Ayaz Sadiq, while PPP’s Kaira, Chaudhry Manzoor and Hasan Murtaza also attended the meeting.
Kaira, while speaking to the media, said that opposition parties will “complete our homework” before Eidul Azha and discuss strategies to oust the government in the APC.
“The opposition feels that Pakistan will face several external and internal dangers [if] this government remains in power,” Iqbal said. “[Considering] what is happening in our region, we need internal unity but this government only has a vengeful agenda with which it is disintegrating the country.
“In this situation, the country’s two biggest opposition parties agree that to get rid of this incompetent government will be representative of this country’s 220 million people.”
