ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman announced on Friday that no member of opposition alliance will attend the National Assembly session summoned to seek vote of confidence for Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Talking to media, he said that the session would lose its importance without the presence of the opposition parties in the lower house of the parliament.

He said that a key meeting of the PDM has been called on March 8, adding that big decision will be taken.

Sealing the victory against Abdul Hafeez Shaikh is tantamount to no-confidence, he said, adding that the premier was slamming own party members.

President Arif Aliv has summoned a National Assembly session on March 6 regarding vote of confidence for the prime minister.

Fazlur Rehman said that the president’s move showed that prime minister had lost confidence, adding: “We will not accept the fake government”.

He went on to say that Imran Khan will be held responsible for weakening the state institutions.

Talking about inflation in the country, he said that the policies of the incumbent government had made it impossible for poor to meet the both ends.

The decision was taken after the ruling PTI lost Islamabad’s major seat to former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, the joint candidate of the PDM.
