He said that the opposition was united and the announcement regarding Azadi March had been made.

The PPP leader said that the current government was the product of rigging, adding that free, fair and transparent should be held in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, ANP leader Iftikhar Hussain said that his party wants a united opposition, adding that the JUI-F chief should take other opposition parties in confidence to keep the opposition united.
