NORTH WAZIRISTAN: Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader MNA Mohsin Dawar has announced that he would no longer be participating in meetings and public gatherings of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
In a series of tweets, Mohsin Dawar said that he had reached this decision after detailed consultations with my colleagues, friends and supporters.
“Certain parties in the PDM have either explicitly or implicitly, expressed their unease with my presence in the forum. The unnecessary friction caused as such, takes away from the important work that we do in our own respective rights,” he said.
The MNA from North Waziristan said his party would continue to support the PDM’s demands for strengthening democracy and civilian supremacy. “We will continue with our struggle for justice and rights for our people, for upholding the rule of law and for the supremacy of the parliament and the constitution,” he said.
The PTM leader thanked Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for inviting him to the upcoming Multan rally and Akhtar Mengal and Malick Baloch for inviting him to the PDM’s Quetta gathering.
“I would also like to thank all those who spoke up for me, who supported me and who continue to stand by me which includes activists and leaders from working class groups, from different ethnic, religious and socio-economic groups,” he wrote.
He said his party’s struggle for marginalised communities would continue. “Our struggle is a joint struggle of all those who continue to suffer grave injustices at the hands of those in power,” he maintained.
