Nawaz directs Rana to prevent dissolution of Punjab Assembly



Pakistan Muslim League-N supremo Nawaz Sharif has directed Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to take every possible step to avert dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.

Rana Sanaullah, in a telephonic conversation, briefed Nawaz Sharif on legal and constitutional means to stop Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi from dissolving the provincial assembly.

Sources privy to the development said the PDM was mulling over a no-confidence motion against CM Elahi, which would be submitted after approval from Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz. Nawaz Sharif and party’s chief organiser Maryam Nawaz had expressed displeasure with party’s provincial leadership after Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi secured the vote of confidence on Thursday.
