    The Third Empire clearly told him not to use force, stop counter rallies and resolve the issue urgently. Resignation of CM Punjab already in pipe line. If IK insisted and persisited PM might also goes on leave for few weeks. This is how things are likely to unfold in coming hours. Rest all what ever he is saying is just face saving and beating about bush.

    WOW – High Court says to file FIR against our serving PM and CM Punjab along with his 21 memebers. And now PM says Democaracy will be de-railed.

    I don’t want my PM to be a person who has cases of alleged Murder against him. Holding Public office comes with some moral and ethical responsibilities. Solely based on Model Town tragedy PM should had stepped down even if he does not agree with IK allegations.

    A horrible conspiracy to convert Pakistan into a fascist state is taking its last breath.They started with Taliban to weaken state institutions to the extant of anarchy so that some adventurists march in and take control of state.The group chanting slogans of change had resisted all kind of military actions against Taliban
    When whole nation was crying for military action.New army chief had foiled this conspiracy very successfully leaving anarchists no choice but thumping chests on streets in the name of rigging.
    Pakistan has survived both Prime minister and coas must be appraised for standing against enemies of Pakistan.

    In house change. That is the key. If IK thinks that they have majority of the members on their side, then they should try to bring an in house change. To say that PTI is right and everyone else is wrong is foolish to say the least and challenges the intelligence of every thinking Pakistani.

    you should have to take the bold decision… You have no right to sit as a Prime minister of Pakistan. If you think you have right to sit as a Prime minister. Then defend killing of 14 persons 85 injured and also defend worst rigging in election.

    come what may….government and prime minister must not resign or go….it is imperative for the betterment of pakistan that these non sensical individuals such as imran khan at the behest of intelligence agencies are sidelined by ensuring governments are not overthrown on thier whims.

    In other words, “Anyone intending to derail the pseudo-democracy which includes the 82 members of the Shareef family in the assemblies will be challenged”, said the ‘champion’ of democracy whose party once attacked the respectable Supreme Court of Pakistan.
