LAHORE: The Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and joint opposition parties have threatened to topple the PML-N led government, saying they will announce their next course of action in the next few days.
Addressing an anti-government rally held on Lahore’s Mall Road — backed by opposition parties, including the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) — PAT chief Tahirul Qadri claimed the Sharifs would not be able to step out of their homes if he mobilises his workers.
“If I ask our workers, they would turn you into pieces,” Qadri said, taking the stage once again in the second session of the rally. “You won’t be able to step out of Jati Umrah, if I ask my workers.”
“We are holding a meeting within two days, and will announce a date. We will call a meeting of APC parties, its steering committee,” he said.
“It has been decided that you will go home; you will have to go home,” he warned the ruling PML-N. He said the joint opposition would soon announce its next course of action.
