Jamali will resign in 90 days, claims Wasti
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali will resign within 90 days, claimed Vice President of the Pakistan Muslim League Quaid-e-Azam (PML-QA) Syed Kabir Ali Wasti.
Talking to Daily Times on Friday, he asserted that “concerned quarters” were unanimous that Mr Jamali had failed to deliver and must be replaced by someone else.
Asked whether coalition partners would support any in-house change, the PML-QA vice president said that any candidate of President General Pervez Musharraf would be acceptable to the ruling party and the coalition partners. A few days ago, President of the PML-QA Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain categorically ruled out the possibility of an in-house change. However, Mr Wasti insisted that an in-house change was on the cards.
He stated that the prime minister has failed to act upon the seven-point agenda of General Musharraf.
“He is not a liberal person and is creating obstacles against the liberal policies of the president (General Musharraf),” he said, adding that the national curricula could not be modernised after the prime minister opposed the plan.
The PML-QA leader claimed that during his term the prime minister also failed to generate more public support for President Musharraf. Last month, Mr Wasti wrote to General Musharraf advising him to replace Mr Jamali with a more loyal person.
