Srinagar, April 12: President of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Fazlur Rehman has been ditched as the newly formed coalition government has decided to elect Asif Ali Zardari as new President.

Fazlur Rehman has remained a front campaigner against ouster Prime Minister Imran Khan for his removal. He was hopeful to be elected as new President of Pakistan after the ouster of Imran Khan.

Reports said that coalition partners of the newly formed Pakistani government has decided to elect Asif Ali Zardari as new president of Pakistan and not Fazlur Rehman.

Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s meeting with business heads in October 2019 in the absence of Imran Khan was being talked about. Reports had also emerged that the Pakistan Army had cancelled the leave for the 111 Brigade dubbed as Pakistan’s coup force.

The 111 Brigade, responsible for PM Imran Khan’s security, was involved in the military coups carried out by General Ayub Khan in the 1950s, General Zia-ul-Haq against the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto government in 1977 and General Pervez Musharraf against the Nawaz Sharif government in 1999.

In this background, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, whose organisation commands possibly the largest network of madrasa schools in Pakistan, launched his ‘remove Imran’ campaign.
