PML-N to give a two-month ultimatum to the federal government to fulfill a list of demands. Otherwise PML-N members will submit their resignations, party sources.
Sharif had said during an address on October 25 that he will make ‘a very important announcement’ on October 28. Party members told that Sharif will not put all his cards on the table during Friday’s rally. “He will not say how the PML-N will ‘quit’. Whether it plans on submitting mass resignations or dissolving the Punjab Assembly remains to be seen,” they said. The final decision will be made after the deadline expires, they added.
PML-N’s rally is part of the party’s ‘Go Zardari Go campaign’ against what it says are the PPP-led government’s three major failures: load shedding, rising prices and widespread corruption.
The party members said that PML-N has, in principle, decided to topple the government within two months.
Nawaz Sharif is currently in Turkey and will return on October 29. Nawaz Sharif will address the rally planned in Faisalabad on November 3 where he will confirm Shahbaz Shairf’s deadline. The party will also hold rallies in Gujranwala on November 14 and then later in Sargodha, Multan Bahawalpur and Rawalpindi.
The PML-N plans on holding a number of public gatherings in the coming two months to motivate the public, the sources said. It is also expected that the party will announce a long march in December.
