Lahore, June 30 (ANI): In a 'veiled' threat to the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) led coalition government, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said that his party would not remain a silent spectator as the government has failed on all fronts be it financial, legal or administrative.

"We've serious reservations about how the government is being run. I'm not using the word 'warning' for the government, but time has come to take a decision," Sharif told media persons during a press conference here.

Sharif said his party had been tolerating taunts of being a 'friendly opposition' only for the sake of democracy, but it would not hesitate to play its role if the government does not mend its ways.

The PML-N has long been accused of playing a role of friendly opposition and political analysts believe that it might shun its affable posture and mount pressure for a mid-term poll amidst a pereception that the PPP was working on a strategy to 'take over Punjab'.

Sources said that the PML-N might try to fuel an anti-PPP campaign within a few days.

Sharif also accused the people in power of conspiring against the judiciary, and added that he was determined to foil any conspiracy.

"The government is trying to ignite a confrontation with the judiciary and the judges are being browbeaten, their verdicts are not being implemented and ministers convicted by courts are being granted pardon," The Dawn quoted Sharif, as saying. (ANI)
