ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has announced that they would hold rallies as a counter to the PML-N protest movement which is scheduled to begin from Saturday.
During a meeting of the top brass of the PPP held under the chair of President Asif Zardari, it was decided not to give the PML-N a free hand.
The PML-N has announced that it will hold a protest movement in an effort to pressure Yousuf Raza Gilani to resign as the prime minister and implement the orders of the Supreme Court.
Prime Minister Gilani was convicted in the contempt of court case following which opposition parties including the PML-N started calling for his resignation.
The PML-N on Friday continued to protest inside the National Assembly chanting slogans and calling for the resignation of Gilani.
Law Minister Farooque Naik said the PML-N protest was against rules and Yousuf Raza Gilani was still a member of the National Assembly and the prime minister. The court or the Election Commission has not disqualified Gilani, he said.
