ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice Chairman and former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday claimed that former president Asif Ali Zardari was dictating Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Bol news reported.
“Asif Zardari is turning Shehbaz around his little finger. N-League has become a sub-party of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP),” Shah Mahmood Qureshi said.
He said the time to take decision was slipping from hands of the government. The government had panicked as the claimant of democracy were arresting people, he maintained. He said the PTI did not arrest the members of PPP and Jamiat Ulama e Islam-F (JUI-F), when they protested.
The PTI vice chairman said Shehbaz Sharif might dissolve the assemblies and announce fresh general elections, as per direction of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
He said a large number of PTI workers had arrived in Islamabad and many more were on their ways. The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had directed to stop the government’s fascism.
Meanwhile, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah announced on Tuesday that the federal government has decided to bar Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to hold long march in Islamabad.
“The long march will be stopped. The government has decided to stop the mess,” the interior minister said in a press conference after cabinet meeting alongside other federal ministers. “Nip the evil in the bud.”
Democratic protest was everyone’s right but they were not coming for that, he said adding that if they had not called it a bloody revolution, the government would have given them the permission. No one can be given permission to block the federal capital, the interior minister said.
