After the Senate’s major upset on Wednesday and Opposition leaders’ demand to send back the Prime Minister, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership promises to stand still like a pillar behind the premier.

As Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to seek vote of confidence from the National Assembly, the PTI leadership is backing his move as #BehindYouSkipper trends on Twitter.

Taking to Twitter, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said, “Behind you Skipper! Pakistan Zindabad.”

Special Assistant to Prime Minister, Shahbaz Gill said, “You are dealing with Imran Khan not with a typical politician.”

He also informed that President Dr. Arif Alvi has summoned the NA session on Saturday, March 6 for the purpose of obtaining the vote of confidence under Article 91(7) of the Constitution.

Moreover, Senator PTI Faisal Javed Khan also jumped in to back the PM Imran Khan after PPP’s Yousaf raza Gilani secured a ‘rigged’ win against PTI’s Hafeez Sheikh.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Imran Khan has addressed the nation after upset defeat in the general seat of Islamabad in the Upper House elections.

The Prime Minister said that the manner in which the Senate elections were held explicates the root cause of the country’s problems.

“When I made the government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, I came to know about how they do horse-trading in Senate elections and this has been going on for 30 to 40 years,” the PM added.

The premier further added that senate elections lead the country and when he got to know how a senator get elected by horse-trading and MPs sell their consciences for money then he decided to start campaigning for an open ballot.

Criticizing the Election Commission, he said, “Fair and transparent elections are the responsibility of the Election Commission.” Does the Constitution allow Electoral fraud? the premier asked.
