Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) -led government would fall within five days if the Punjab government fell.

Sanaullah appeared on journalist Shahzeb Khanzada’s show on Thursday and said that PML-N was not going to stand the PTI government in power and would make it crumble in a day if it could because the regime was detrimental to the economy and the people.

He added that PML-N was in touch with the Tareen group’s leaders, who would inform the opposition party if there was a move to pass a no-confidence motion against the government. PML-N would grab the opportunity to dethrone the government with certainty, he said.

Khanzada inquired why PML-N was not approaching other political parties like Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to speed up the no-confidence motion. The anchor further wondered whether PML-N’s anti-government rallies were hollow pomp and show without any concrete plan, to which Sanaullah responded that it was a wrong to say that PML-N was not interested in overthrowing the government. Sanaullah said that PML-N had frequently spoken with other parties, but the response was usually lacklustre.

The PML-N member also pressed on the need for free and fair elections for the sake of democracy in Pakistan. He said that now was not the time to debate how to make things better, but affirmative action was required through transparent elections to address the grievances of the people.
