PML-N opposing Askari because he criticized govt during 2014 sit-in: Ahmad Waleed

June 8, 2018

Professor Hasan Askari Rizvi, a renowned academic and political commentator, has been appointed as Punjab’s caretaker Chief Minister by the ECP.

The PML-N, however, has opposed his appointment because it believes that Mr. Askari is biased towards the party.

Ahmad Waleed, SAMAA’s Lahore bureau chief, said Mr. Askari is a balanced analyst.

However, he said the caretaker Punjab CM had repeatedly criticized the PML-N government during the 2014 sit-in and it is one of the reasons why his appointment is being questioned.
