Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief and Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) head MaulanaFazlurRehman on Sunday announced to postpone Karachi rally due to surging coronavirus cases in the port city.

The PDM chief earlier announced to hold a rally in Karachi on August 13. PML-N leader and Secretary-General of Pakistan Democratic Movement, ShahidKhaqanAbbasi, said the multi-party alliance will announce a new date of the Karachi rally once the Covid situation gets better in the provincial capital of Sindh.

According to the sources, the PDM has decided to give a tough time not only to Imran Khan’s PTI government but also to the PPP’s Sindh government.

MuttahidaQaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) yesterday also postponed its scheduled protest rally in Hyderabad against the Sindh government after a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Sindh government on July 31 imposed lockdown in the province till August to stem the spread of coronavirus cases.

Earlier on July 18, JamiatUlema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief MaulanaFazlurRehman and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif held consultations on the next power shows of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
