Country will witness bloodshed if SC's order not complied with, says Sheikh Rashid
Pakistan is becoming jail and death zone for the poor
RAWALPINDI (Dunya News) – Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said on Wednesday if the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict was not acted upon, it would lead to bloodshed in the country.
The apex court has ordered the authorities to hold general elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 90 days after the dissolution of the assemblies as Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial had taken suo motu notice of the date for elections in the province.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Today is the most important day of Pakistan’s democracy as it will decide whether Pakistan attains social, political and economic stability or droops into the political divide. Political instability has moved the IMF into imposing four stringent conditions like that of 1998, Moody’s downgrading of Pakistan’s rating, and raising concerns of the country’s default”.

In another tweet, he wrote, “Pakistan is becoming a big jail and death zone for the poor as they are dying of hunger. The government did nothing but get the cases against the rulers quashed in the past 10 months. A conspiracy is being plotted to divide the judges as it happened in 1998”.
