KARACHI: In a tit-for-tat reply to PML-N chief’s call for PM Gilani’s resignation, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah came to rescue his leader, threatening Long March to Lahore against the opposition party, SAMAA reports.
Nawaz Sharif on Friday appealed to the public to rise up against what he called ‘immoral’ and ‘illegal government’.
War of the words has escalated between the PPP and PML-N after Supreme Court convicted Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani of contempt for not ordering reopening of multi-million-dollar corruption cases against President Zardari.
Shah, during a press conference here, said “Nawaz Sharif should refrain from issuing threats. If they will go to Islamabad then PPP jialas will march to Lahore.”
“He (Sharif) is taking cover of the Supreme Court which is yet to issue a detailed verdict… He should wait for general elections,” charged Qaim said in an angry tone. SAMAA
