Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar termed the coalition party Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) as a party of a few districts of Punjab and said that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan was needed in Pakistan.
Speaking at the Pakistan Overseas conference, Asad said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is the party of Pakistanis across the country while PML-Q is the party of some districts of Punjab while Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is the party of GT Road and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is the party of Sindh.
Earlier, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed, commenting on the politics of Punjab, said, “I am not one of those who blackmail for chief ministership with five seats in hand.”
It is being reported that National Assembly (NA) Speaker Asad Qaiser held a meeting with the legal department to seek an opinion regarding the voting of disgruntled members of the party.
Sources privy to the matter have revealed that the Speaker was informed that none of the members can be stopped from casting their votes, however, the party can take action against those who violate its policy.
They further added that citing Article 63(1)A of the Constitution of Pakistan, the legal department said the law is very clear in this regard.
PTI Senator Faisal Javed Khan said on Monday that the voting on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran will take place after March 27.
In a tweet, he said the “biggest rally” in Pakistan’s history would be held at Islamabad’s D-Chowk, located in front of Parliament House, on March 27 during which PM Imran would give a “historic speech”.
