A Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) forward bloc is in the making, claimed Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid on Saturday.

“There are more strong cases in the court against [PPP co-chairman] Asif Ali Zardari than there are against [PML-N chief] Nawaz Sharif,” Rashid said while addressing a news conference in Lahore.

“Sindh is not going to witness governor’s rule, neither it will become a political battleground for [Prime Minister] Imran Khan, but a forward bloc in the PML-N is in the making and that will be evident in the days to come,” said the railways minister.

PTI demands chief minister’s resignation, PPP hits back

He went on to add that PPP leader Khurshid Shah’s fate will be similar to Asif Ali Zardari’s, and demanded resignation of Sindh chief minister Murad Ali Shah, whose name has been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).

On Friday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Sindh chapter demanded the resignation of Sindh chief minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, a day after the federal government announced to place the names of top PPP leadership on the ECL.
