” The PPP will certainly not let the PTI bulldoze everything, particularly, after the PML-N couldn’t make the PPP comprehend what will certainly be the result of en masse resignations and also lengthy march. The PTI’s 126-day lengthy sit-in could not oust the government rather it was a court decision which deposed Nawaz Sharif.”
