Today morning, Pakistan saw scores of banners springing up in various cities urging Cheif of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif to impose martial law in the country and form a government of technocrats.
Most of the people and the political leadership including the top army officials were left shocked to see such a campaign go live that will eventually leave a negative impact on the economy and with the lenders such as IMF and World Bank. Moreover, it will be a big blow to the democratic wave that is running in succession.
The posters and banners were evident in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Hyderabad among many other cities of Pakistan by the not so known political party of Punjab the Move on Pakistan party. Last time they were in the limelight was when the party requested the General Raheel Sharif to reconsider his retirement plan in last year November. However, this time, it is not only a message but an aggressive campaign to oust the current political set up which is marked with corruption and constant allegations of rigging in the 2013 elections that saw PML-N victorious.
Previously such banners that requested the COAS to stay were removed in Rawalpindi, but no strict action has been taken so far in the new campaign by Move on Pakistan party.
According to the information found on the internet, the Move on Pakistan party was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan three years ago, and it is spearheaded by a Faisalabad-based businessman named Mohammad Kamran. He is the chairman of the party who runs multiple schools in Faisalabad, Sargodha, and Lahore.
