LAHORE:- Governor Punjab Omar Sarfraz Cheema Thursday said that the crisis-hit province has been taken hostage by force.

The statement comes a day after urging Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa to play his “role” in the implementation of the Constitutional framework in Punjab.

The PTI loyalist, in a statement on Twitter, said that said that the silence of mainstream political parties on the constitutional crisis in Punjab is “extremely worrying” and added that Awab Alvi, President Arif Alvi’s son, will be the next chief minister of Sindh if such practices become the culture of our politics.

He had refused to administer the oath to Hamza Shahbaz, which earned him the ire of the Lahore High Court which later ordered National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf to do the job.
