LAHORE – PML-N media coordinator Muhammad Mehdi has demanded removal of Interior Minister Rehman Malik from the cabinet because of his statements and activities.

In a statement on Sunday, he said the PPP government must show the interior minister the door as the posting of a liar to a sensitive portfolio was dangerous for the country. Mehdi criticised Malik for ‘overstepping’ his mandate by making fake allegations against the Punjab government.

“The PML-N leadership and the Punjab government are fully committed to eliminate terrorism from society,” he added.

He said the PPP governments in Centre, Sindh and Balochistan had failed to maintain law and order.
