ISLAMABAD: Expressing no confidence in the performance of PPP-led ruling coalition, PML-Q ministers on Tuesday tendered their resignations to party’s leadership.
The resignations were submitted to Chaudry Shujaat Hussain at the meeting of PMLQ’s parliamentary party, which held on Tuesday and lasted for many than six hours.
They were of the view that the government had failed to honor the promises they had made with the public, and failed to provide any relief to the government.
“There is no justification of remaining in the coalition government while pubic issues are on the rise,” they said.
Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain, Faisal Saleh Hayat, Riaz Hussain Pirzada, Ghaus Bux Mehr, Amir Muqam and Sheikh Waqas Akram reportedly submitted their resignations.
PML-Q Chief Chaudhry Shujaat demanded of Prime Minister Gilani to call an all-party conference to discuss the ongoing electricity and gas crises.
The meeting reviewed the performance of the government; meanwhile talking to media after the meeting Faisla Saleh Hayat and Riaz Hussain Pirzada said that they have tendered their resignations to the party leadership, adding that there is no chance of taking back these resignations.
They said that they are facing severe kind of public criticism for failing to solve the problems of the masses, adding that government has failed to overcome the energy crisis in the country.
Riaz Pirzada said that if we can not solve the problems of the masses than what is logic for keeping posts with us; meanwhile the ministers who quitted demand of the party leadership to sit on the opposition benches and speaker National Assembly should be asked to immediately allot the seats on the opposition benches.
