Qadri has called the APC against the incumbent government as he had earlier demanded Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah to step down from their positions in light of the Model Town judicial commission report.

The judicial commission report also known as Justice Baqir Najfi commission enquiry report was constituted on the killings of at least 14 people in police action against PAT workers during an ‘anti-encroachment operation’ on June 17, 2014.According to the report, police tried to cover up the facts regarding who gave orders to open fire on protesters. “It is shocking to note that everyone has deliberately but unsuccessfully tried to cover each other from possible adverse legal effects.”

The commission observed in its report: “The level of cooperation in digging out the truth is that no police official from top to bottom, whether actively participated in the operation or not, did utter a single word about the person under whose command the police resorted to firing upon the PAT workers.”
