Islamabad, Jan 15: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has not been spared from facing the wrath of the people of the country on Tuesday, Jan 15. Representing the countrymen, former Pakistani cricketer and politician Imran Khan demanded immediate resignation from Zardari.

Imran Khan also vowed to hold a "tsunami march" which would rock the political system of the country. Expressing his rage against the government of the country, Imran Khan said, "Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari must resign. Pakistan government must announce election date as soon as possible; elections must be held under neutral caretaker setup."

Imran Khan's statement surfaced following the Supreme Court's order which states that Prime Minister of Pakistan, Raja Pervez Ashraf should be arrested within 24 hours. Ashraf has been accused of taking kickbacks while he held the portfolios of water and power in 2008.

Ashraf is one of the 33 accused in the Rental Power Projects (RPP) scam. Today, a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry directed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to arrest the Prime Minister and other persons who were involved in the Rs 22 billion scam.

Co-incidentally, the apex court's order to arrest the PM was taken at a time when the nation has been experiencing a revolution led by the chief of Tehrik Minhaj-ul-Quran organisation, Tahir-ul-Qadri.

Qadri demanded dissolution of Pakistani Parliament and the new caretaker government backed by the Army. Qadri on Tuesday marched into Islamabad with tens of thousands of his supporters and demanded that the government step down and dissolve the national and provincial assemblies. He claimed that he would lead a "people's democratic revolution" to push his demand for sweeping electoral reforms.
