Pakistan Democratic Movement, the nine-party opposition alliance has called the big political assembly for the very first time on Friday after forming the alliance in September last. They have organized a prote4st rally yesterday (Friday) demanding the immediate resignation of incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Through the rally of the opposition alliance, a nationwide movement has been launched to overthrow the Imran Khan-led government. The opposition claims that Imran Khan had climbed the power through the election mechanism by setting up the country's army.

Imran Khan, who came to power by fighting against corruption, has been denying the role of the army behind the election victory.

On Friday, he said, he is not afraid of the opposition movement. He said, “The aim of the movement is to blackmail me to withdraw the corruption cases lodged against opposition leaders”.

But the opposition’s voice is different; “We have taken to the streets to establish the rule of law; To fight against injustice, unemployment and price hike” said Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, at the opposition rally at the Gujwanwala Stadium near Lahore.

Nawaz's Pakistan Muslim League ( PML - N ) is the country's main opposition party. In 2017 last, he was accused of corruption charges, as well as he was declared ineligible as the Prime Minister by the country's Supreme Court.
