F.P. Report

LAHORE: Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Wednesday predicted that the government can extend the term of assembly till one year under article 232.

Speaking exclusively to Dunya News, Rasheed maintained that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will never accept Sadiq Sanjrani as acting president.

“Nawaz Sharif’s mental status is pitiful. The prime minister says that he not the premier while Nawaz Sharif says that the government is not of their party. If the rule is not theirs then whose?” he asked. “The country is going to witness worst loadsehdding and will get a blow of 440 volt. Economical crisis is engulfing the country,” said the AML chief.

On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said that only one crisis is ongoing in Pakistan which is ‘no elections are being held in the country’. There is no room for delay in elections and political emergency.
