PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira says that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leadership has decided that the long march will not be a one-day sitting.
Appearing on Geo News program Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath, he said that caravans from all over the country will reach Islamabad. He said participants of the sit-in will stop at Faizabad for a while and then move to another place in two or three days.
The PPP leader said they will not damage any property like the marches held under the banner of the previous government of Prime Minister Imran Khan. “We will have a peaceful protest, we will also go to the red zone,” he said.
A day earlier, PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman addressed a press conference after an important meeting of the antigovernmental alliance.
The conference was held to mull over several strategies, including participation in the Senate elections and the long march, in its anti-government campaign.

Fazl had said that the alliance has decided on a “long march” towards Islamabad on March 26.
Sources say the long march will be termed the “mehengai march” (march against inflation).
He also said that the parties have decided to contest the Senate elections together and will not go against each other’s candidates. “Our candidates will be jointly decided,” he had added.
