The statement from the Opposition leader came during a Geo News programme Jirga, which will be aired this Saturday at 10pm.

Fazl, who is one of the three bigwig Opposition leaders and president of his own faction of JUI, said that the government's allies are not willing to support the premier anymore.

The veteran politician said that the PDM had encouraging contacts with PTI's allies, namely PML-Q, Grand Democratic Alliance, MQM-P, and Balochistan Awami Party.

No-trust motion submitted

The Opposition is confident of having the numbers to remove PM Imran Khan through the no-trust motion and has said that they took the step after completing their homework.

The opposition parties submitted the no-trust motion earlier this week in the National Assembly Secretariat to "get rid of PTI government."

The main coalition partners of the ruling party have also not publicly announced support to the PTI but the federal ministers are claiming that PML-Q and MQM-P are with them.
