JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, compounding pressure on a coalition government shedding support. Fazlur Rehman made the call just hours after the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), the main coalition partner of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), announced that it was quitting the federal cabinet, although would not join the opposition. The prime minister should resign and the PPP should appoint a new one, Fazlur Rehman told reporters.
