Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Mussarat Jamshed Cheema said on Friday the coalition government in Centre was attempting to evade elections.

In a tweet, the former member of the Punjab Assembly said it was being speculated that the tenure of the assemblies could be extended, which she described as “completely unconstitutional”.

“We will force them to hold general elections in April,” she said and lashed out the “imported government” for doing nothing except removing their cases in last nine months.

A day earlier, PTI Chairman Imran Khan warned the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), saying he had a “trump card” and plenty of choices to put his political rivals to the test.

Speaking to senior journalists in Lahore, the deposed premier took a dig at Punjab Governor Balighur Rehman, alleging that by omitting to include the election date in the summary sent following the dissolution of the assembly, he had breached the constitution.

Recounting the demand of the elections, Mr Khan said if the polls will not held, the country will have to face a Sri Lanka-like situation.

Berating Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Mr Khan held the financial czar responsible for the economic woes.
Making his claim on the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Mr Khan said serious voices were being heard regarding vandalism within the PML-N. He also chided the PML-N for “inherent politics,” saying former party leader Chaudhry Nisar was the first to raise the voice against dynastic politics.

Mr Khan also made it clear that there was no plan to stage a protest, even if the date of general elections was not announced.
