July 25, the first anniversary of 2018 general elections, will be marked as a ‘black day’ across the country in a protest against the alleged rigging during the elections, said a Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader after an opposition moot at the Bilawal House, Karachi.
Conventions will be held across the country, with the general convention outside the Mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
The participants of the meeting also constituted an organising committee for the event.
Two members each from the PPP, the PML-N, the Jamiat Ulma-i-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F), the Awami National Party (ANP), the National Party (NP), the Jamiat Ulma-i-Pakistan (JUP), the Pakhtunkhwa Mili Awami Party (PkMAP) will be a part of the committee.
The PPP leader said that inflation, joblessness and poverty have increased immensely since the incumbent “selected” government was “imposed”. He added that the July 25 general convention would become a milestone in the country’s politics.
Other opposition leaders also addressed the presser and said all political parties of the country are on the same page. They added that masses would not forgive the political forces if they didn’t launch a protest drive.
