The 12-point “Charter of Pakistan” was unveiled by the Pakistan Democratic Movement on Tuesday as it vowed to continue its campaign against the “elected” government aimed at sending packaging.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, after a meeting between various PDM leaders, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said the charter fulfills the people’s promise to share the ground principles and objectives of the 11-party opposition.

The 12 points of the covenant are stated below:

1. Implementation and supremacy of the Constitution of Pakistan

Eliminate the role of the establishment and intelligence agencies from politics

Establishment of an independent judiciary

5. Reforms for free, fair and equitable elections

7. Protection of the rights of the provinces and the 18th Amendment

8. Effective local government system

9. Freedom of expression and protection of the media

10. Eliminate extremism and terrorism and implement the National Action Plan

11. Emergency Economic Plan to End Inflation, Unemployment and Poverty

12. Protection and implementation of Islamic provisions of the Constitution

Zaidi’s statement against the government

During the briefing, Fazlur Rehman also commented on the Shabbir Zaidi controversy, saying that the “confession” of the former FBR chief was an FIR against the government.

The PDM chief alleged that “the sugar mafia was given a facility of Rs 400 billion,” Shabbir Zaidi said, adding that Imran Khan had told him to leave them, they would fund us. “

He also said that when Zaidi “caught those responsible” he was “fired”.

Zaidi responded to the remarks on Twitter, saying such a statement was “completely wrong”.

“After working with him, my respect for Imran Khan multiplied. He is [a] Against the great leader and a warrior [the] Old System. “I respect and salute them,” he wrote.

‘Rigged’ elections rejected

The PDM chief also said that the opposition alliance “rejects rigging in Gilgit-Baltistan”.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman said, “It was a replay of rigging in the 2018 elections.

He alleged that the directives of the Supreme Court for free and fair elections in Gilgit-Baltistan have been ignored.

‘Meeting plans will continue’

“We have decided that we will not end our campaign until the packaging is sent to the elected government,” Maulana announced.

He said the NAB, FIA and other agencies were taking “revenge” by making “false cases” against political activists.

Fazlur Rehman said the PDM rejects the ban on political rallies under the guise of “corona virus”. “PDM rallies will be on schedule.”
