PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah claimed that Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has contacted him ahead of the vote on the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The political temperature of Islamabad is soaring day by day as the government and Opposition have both rolled up their sleeves for a power show.
Speaking on Geo News programme Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath, PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah said: “If [the] Chief Justice of Pakistan and other respectable judges of [the] Supreme Court had not given remarks on [the] no-trust motion, the speaker of the Tiger Force would have adjourned the lower house session for an indefinite period.”
He was speaking in view of the Supreme Court hearing on a presidential reference seeking an interpretation on Article 63(A).
The PML-N leader also claimed that many lawmakers of the incumbent government had been approaching them [the Opposition], including Chaudhry, ahead of the no-trust motion.
“Fawad Chaudhry has contacted me, to which I told him that he had only one or half a day left for the decision,” he said.
The PML-N leader said that after the assurance of Attorney-General Khalid Javed, PTI would not stage a sit-in at D-Chowk.
Initially, around 24 lawmakers had announced to vote in favour of the no-trust move and dissociated themselves from the ruling PTI.
Then three major coalition partners of the government, MQM-P, PML-Q and BAP, also decided to part ways with the PTI ahead of the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
To counter the Opposition's no-trust move, Prime Minister Imran Khan invited on Thursday the nation to join him on March 27 to reinstate the government's stance against the “dacoits” ruling Pakistan for the last 30 years.
In a special message for the nation broadcast on television, social media and radio, the premier had said that the “group of bandits” who have been looting the county for the last 30 years have joined hands in “auctioning the conscience of the elected public representatives.”
