The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman and the PDM president deliberated upon the political situation
The coalition government and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) have been holding poll parleys and a meeting is due tonight. The opposition delegation consists of PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry and Senator Ali Zafar while PML-N’s Ishaq Dar, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Azam Nazeer Tarar and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq along with PPP’s Senator Yousuf Raza Gilani and Syed Naveed Qamar are representing the government.
Former prime minister Imran Khan yesterday threatened to take to the street if the coalition government does not dissolve the assemblies by May 14.
“The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf will take to the streets, if the assemblies are not dissolved before May 14,” the PTI chief said while addressing the participants of a rally taken out from Liberty Chowk to Nasir Bagh.
Imran Khan has been on a campaign for snap polls since his ouster from the Prime Minister’s Office through a no-confidence motion in April last. He blamed the US for his ouster, saying US-backed conspiracy was behind his ouster as he made an independent foreign policy. However, Washinton denied any wrongdoing.
He led a march to the federal capital and dissolved the assemblies of Punjab and KP after his road show failed to bear fruit.
