Governor Omar Sarfaraz Cheema Thursday said that he will arrest CM Hamza Shehbaz Sharif if provided “a subedar and four soldiers”.
In a statement on Twitter, Omar Sarafarz Cheema said that the crisis-hit province has been taken hostage by force.
The PTI loyalist 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.

"I always called for a neutral umpire during my political struggle,” he said, adding that the neutral umpire, in fact, has the same rules for both teams.
Reacting to his tweets, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Talal Chaudhary said a havildar and four soldiers are soon coming to Governor House to throw Cheema out from the office.
He said the time has come to end the unconstitutional occupation of Imran Niazi’s tout on the Governor House.
Talal said he would be headed directly to jail from Governor House due to unconstitutional steps taken by him.
Cheema has been at the centre of controversy in the country's biggest province since PTI appointed him as governor replacing Mohammad Sarwar at the peak of the crisis last month.
