LAHORE– PML-N Senator Tariq Azeem has said the PPP is running away from elections. While commenting on the statement of Information Minister Qamaruz Zaman Kaira, Azeem said on Saturday that pressed under the worst ever corruption of the PPP government, people did not support this government in the upcoming general elections.  He rejected the statement of Kaira that the PPP never deferred the elections in the past.

Azeem reminded that the PPP only once had held the elections, but the people came out on the road even against their results.

He said the current law and order situation is sufficient to expose claims of the information minister and stressed the need for holding elections. Azeem said that PML-N president has already expressed his willingness for investigations into Mehranbank scam as per the directions of the Supreme Court.
