ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Putting the government between a rock and a hard place, senior leader of Pakistan peoples Party, Aitzaz Ahsan has urged the government to arrest leaders of “Move on Pakistan” party for hanging pro-army chief posters.

Talking to newsmen outside Supreme Court, Aitzaz was of the view that the government is behind the posters to mount pressure on opposition.

“The posters in favour of General Raheel Sharif carry phone numbers of Move on Pakistan party leaders, so why authorities have not so far arrested them?” Ahsan said.
