Sharif who spent 10 days in Saudi Arabia has plenty of challenges at home to cope with, including issues of calling in army in Islamabad invoking article 245 of the constitution and the PTI long march.
On his arrival Nawaz Sharif told media: “What is the agenda of long march, what do they want, even they don’t discuss it clearly.
He said that Imran Khan had announced to accept the results of the election despite reservations about its credibility but precisely after a year he had started raising questions.
The government has been facing strong criticism from the Pakistan People’s Party for deploying army in the federal capital with Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khurshid Shah warning the government of use of force to prevent a long march.
“It is wrong to invoke article 245 to stop protest, use of force in democratic era is not a wise move,” he said.
Similarly, the PTI seems firm on its decision to take a long march on Islamabad. The prime minister has to make a final decision whether to allow the PTI to stage the long march or not.
