Pakistan Democratic Movement chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday announced that within the next two weeks, the Opposition will hold coun-trywide protests against the growing inflation.

“As soon as we are done with the celebrations of the Eid Milad un Nabi (SAW), we will start a full-fledged campaign against inflation,” he said while speaking to the media after holding a meeting with party members in Islamabad.

“We appeal to the entire nation to fully participate in the protests and rallies,” he said while giving details of how the government incurred debts and increased inflation in the country.

Earlier in the day, Shahbaz Sharif had a telephonic conversation with Fazl and announced that the Opposition will start a campaign against the rising inflation in the country.

Taking to its official Twitter account, the PML-N confirmed that Shahbaz and Fazl criticised the gov-ernment’s policies during the phone call and have decided to launch a full-fledged campaign against “the worst inflation in the country’s history”.

The two leaders agreed to join anti-government protests of other Opposition parties. During the phone call, Shahbaz told Fazl that leaders need to get out of their homes to “save the nation from infla-tion, unemployment, and the ongoing economic catastrophe across the country”.
