Islamabad: Former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed on Monday suggested Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif after the landslike victory of PTI in Punjab to step down after his powers have been confined to Islamabad only.
Speaking to the media in Islamabad, he said that Shehbaz Sharif’s domain of power has been shrunk to the federal capital and advised him to dissolve the national assembly this week.
He emphasized that there is no other way than general elections for bringing political stability to the country.
He suggested the formation of an interim government and the organization of general elections in October.
He said that Lahore chose PTI over PML-N which was once its stronghold.
The former minister said that the incumbent government had come into power to end corruption cases against those part of it.
He added that the people have rejected ‘foreign conspiracy’ and that they were happy that the establishment kept itself away from the elections.
