ISLAMABAD – The opposition parties Sunday decided to hold protest demonstrations in and outside the parliament against the government after Eidul Fitr.

"We have also decided to hold an All Parties Conference (APC) after Eid," said PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in a press conference after the high-level huddle held at the Zardari House.

The PPP supremo said that every single political party will also hold separate protests against the disastrous policies adopted by the incumbent government.

The APC will be convened by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman to discuss opposition's future course of action in regards to putting up a front against the Prime Minister Imran Khan's government.

JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the APC will be called in a bid to reach a consensus over shared cause and course of action.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz stalwart Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the opposition believes that the government has failed to deliver.

Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement's Mohsin Dawar said that the matters of the state should be run as according to the constitution. "The state of Pakistan can no more run by defying the constitution. We all have consensus over one point that all policies should be made by parliament."

Among other leaders attending the Iftar dinner were Aftab Sherpao, Liaquat Baloch, PTM leaders and Shah Awais Noorani. Akhtar Mengal, Mahmood Khan Achazkzai and Asfandyar Wali Khan excused from attending the meeting due to prior personal commitments.
