Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, leader of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), an alliance of opposition parties, and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), said the PDA was with government employees.
Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri met government employees protesting in front of Parliament House and expressed solidarity with them.
Addressing the protesters on the occasion, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said that the issue of salaries of government employees would be raised in the Senate.
“After going to jail, the statements of many people change. The present government has made many promises to all sections,” he said.
The PDM leader said that the condition of the sections of the country which are making progress has been aggravated, inflation is on the rise, restrictions on democracy and violence against journalists are being witnessed.
He added that the IMF had prepared a draft and handed it over to Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen.
