SARGODHA: Pir Hameedud Din Sialvi parted ways Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Wednesday and announced to lead a rally on December 10 in Faisalabad reiterating his demand for Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah to resign.
Speaking to the media, Pir Sialvi said that they would have no association with the ruling PML-N moving forward.
“Fingers are being pointed at us for entering into a deal [with PML-N],” he said.
“We have submitted an application for holding a rally in Faisalabad and the demand for Rana Sanaullah’s resignation is final,” the custodian of Dargah Sial Sharif said.
He also claimed that 15 lawmakers of the ruling PML-N are with them.
“These lawmakers would announce their resignations at the Khatm-e-Nabuwat Conference on December 10,” Pir Sialvi said.
The announcement comes merely days after spokesperson of Punjab government Zaeem Qadri called on Sialvi at his residence and attempted to mediate between the government and the group that took offence of law minister’s statement.
On Sunday, the custodian of Dargah Sial Sharif had postponed his demand for Sanaullah’s resignation, following his telephonic conversation with Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif.
His nephew, MPA Nizamuddin Sialvi, had confirmed the development saying the Punjab CM told Sialvi that Sanaullah is ready to appear before him and address all concerns. NNI/Agencies
