Imran to dissolve assemblies if polls not announced by Dec 30: Rashid


LAHORE, DEC 04 (DNA) — Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid said on Sunday Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan would get the date for the national elections till December 30 or dissolve the assemblies.

In a statement on Twitter, the AML chief while giving an ultimatum to the incumbent government said now it has all come to the point for the ruling body to either strengthen the ‘country’s politics’ or destroy it.

Mr Rashid underlined that people don’t trust the coalition government and it’s only option is to call for an ‘escape election’ as they cannot face the public. Targeting the Shehbaz-led government further, he said Miftah Ismail, who was the former finance minister, wasn’t sparing his own government in bashing the ongoing economic policies of the government.

In another tweet, he also expressed grief on the demise of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader and Marriyum Aurangzeb’s aunt Najma Hameed. He prayed for the departed soul and the bereaved family. =DNA
