ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari Friday warned the federal government he would respond if it imposes the governor's rule in Sindh — where the PPP is in power.

"If you have the guts, then impose governor's rule, Imran Khan! Don't delay it, impose it today," Bilawal dared the PM as the political tensions rise in the country with the vote on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

"InshAllah, all of us will come to Islamabad and respond," the PPP chairman said.

However, PM Imran Khan ruled out imposing the governor's rule in Sindh, sources told Geo News Friday but decided to move the Supreme Court against the disgruntled members of the ruling PTI.

Chairing the PTI’s political committee today, the prime minister vowed to battle the Opposition and was confident of the failure of the no-confidence motion against him.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed had a day earlier proposed the premier take steps in order to stop the "horse-trading" from taking place at the Sindh House.

During the meeting, the majority of the participants opposed the move after the interior minister presented a summary in this regard.

"Only two federal ministers backed the idea," sources said.

The PM, however, issued directives to deliberate further on the issue, saying the situation will deteriorate further by imposing the governor's rule.

The Sindh House grabbed the spotlight after it was revealed on Thursday that around 24 PTI MNAs had been staying at the Sindh House in Islamabad — and some of them had publicly announced to go against the party.

In a press conference after the meeting, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said all the disgruntled PTI MPs who have sought refuge in Sindh House ahead of the no-confidence motion to return, assuring them that no action will be taken against them.
