Asad Umar berates PDM in Islamabad rally


ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar taunted the Pakistan Democratic Movement Friday, saying that the Opposition alliance had threatened to hold a long march but “fled after having tea and biscuits.”

The minister was speaking at a PTI rally in Islamabad where he took digs at the PDM, saying that despite predicting the government’s downfall, the Opposition alliance itself got destroyed.

“I advised them not to come to Islamabad [for the long march],” taunted Umar. “The PDM sent Maulana Fazlur Rehman to Islamabad but fled itself.”

He took shots at PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, saying that whenever he issued threats, no one took them seriously.

“If Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari threatens someone, do you get scared?” he asked the crowd. “PDM, at least bring someone whose threats can be taken seriously.”

The minister said that the PDM had taken a hit by not going ahead with its proposed long march and had, in the process, saved itself from further embarrassment.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan’s example shows that when you work towards a goal with sincerity, you [ultimately] achieve success,” he said.
