LAHORE: Chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek Dr. Tahir ul Qadri has given entire Punjab cabinet including Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and provincial Law Minister Rana Sanaullah December 31 as deadline to resign.
Addressing a convention here Qadri said that 14 people were killed in cold blood in Model Town over three years ago but it seems as if there is no one who could dispense justice to the bereaving families who lost their near and dear ones.
The doors of justice remain closed for the justice seekers for the last three-and-half years. However, we would not tolerate justice being delayed any more, we have given the time frame today and will soon also announce future strategy.
Qadri demanded Nawaz Sharif, CM Shehbaz and law minister Rana Sanaullah to surrender themselves before law enforcement authorities. The PAT leader said that in case his demands are not met he will announce his next course of action.
“Enough is enough, Nawaz Sharif’s brother Shehbaz must resign. After this report, he stands condemned, and a condemned man cannot remain the chief minister of the largest province of Pakistan,” Zardari told reporters at a press conference alongside Qadri in Lahore. Saying that calling courts’ verdicts double standard constitutional sedition Qadri lashed out at Nawaz Sharif plastering accusation on the judiciary right outside the court and called it an act of contempt of court.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has also demanded the resignation of Shehbaz. INP
