PML-N, PPP threaten to submit resignations from assemblies
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have threatened to submit resignations from the assemblies in protest against the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) government.
They have announced that they would take a final decision in this regard after consultation with all their ally parties of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
Sources said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has suggested to submit their resignations with Jamiat Ulema e Islam-F chief and PDM chairman Maulana Fazl ur Rehman.
PPP leader and Sindh Information Minister Nasir Hussain Shah said that his party would act upon the decision taken by the PDM leadership.
Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that resignation was a serious option and the PDM meeting would finalise the decision in this regard.
“Armed forces, judiciary, the National Accountability Bureau and media should sit down and mull over how to run this country. A strange system of ruling is being introduced in the country. A parliamentary system cannot be run one-sided,” he said.
He said there was no use of holding talks with the government as it was useless.
A PDM meeting was held on Tuesday (today) in Islamabad, which was participated by senior PDM leaders physically, while Nawaz Sharif and former president Asif Zardari attended the meeting virtually. Maryam, Bilawal Zardari and Maulana Fazl were also present on this occasion.
Addressing a corner meeting in Lahore, PML-N’s Khawaja Asif said that they would not allow the government to run.
