PPP, PTI, others can’t bring PML-N down, says Rafique

F.P. Report

LAHORE: Railways Minister Saad Rafique on Saturday criticised the alliance of opposing parties demanding resignations from the ruling party and said that no party can bring down the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

“PPP, PTI and other groups can’t bring down PML-N,” he said while addressing the media here.

The PML-N leader added that while there is nothing wrong with political alliances, holding rallies, and criticising the government, politics of lies and in the name of religion is saddening.

“Previously there used to be anti-Bhutto politics and now anti-Nawaz politics has become rampant,” he said.

Rafique’s comments come amid the increasing calls for resignations from political opponents, the latest being demands for Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif to step down.

An unprecedented alliance of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PAT Chief Tahirul Qadri on Thursday demanded Shehbaz’s resignation in the wake of the Model Town inquiry report.
