PDM to observe ‘thanksgiving day’


The ruling Pakistan Democratic Movement has announced that they will observe ‘thanksgiving day’ over PTI chief Imran Khan’s announcement to dissolve Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies in a bid to force the government into early elections.

Soon after his announcement, Federal Minister for Planning Ahsan Iqbal ‘welcomed’ Imran’s announcement, saying they are ready to contest early polls.

Iqbal said Imran could do anything for returning to power and added that he had no regard for devastation caused by recent floods.

“PDM will fully participate in these elections. Elections will be held according to the Constitution of the country after the dissolution of assemblies dominated by Imran Khan,” he added.

The federal minister said the incumbent government was “undoing the damage” caused by the PTI-led government.
