He said the PPP wanted to give a hard time to the PTI-led coalition government, adding that it had been opposing the government since it came to power in 2018.
The PDM did nothing for the people
PTI’s Farrukh Habib on Friday mocked the PDM, saying that the opposition alliance did nothing and only resorted to washing its dirty clothes in public.
He had said that the PDM was completely broken because at present there are two factions in the alliance, following different statements.
He added that one was insisting on the politics of resistance while the other insisted on the politics of reconciliation.
He had said that his movement was limited to getting NRO-like concessions and blackmailing the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to cut off its wings.
