Former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Tuesday that no-confidence in the National Assembly and the Punjab Assembly will be for the country and not for power.
Addressing media in Islamabad, he said that Pakistan cannot move forward until it begins with the law and constitution that do not allow a premier to ask for the vote of confidence from the parliament himself.
He also said that Prime Minister Imran Khan warned the opposition in his speech but the NA remained silent. He said, “His own Finance Minister was defeated by Members National Assembly (MNAs). The minister should have quit on moral grounds afterward.”
“The incumbent regime has done horse-trading in the Senate elections by giving Rs 70 crore in Balochistan and Rs 35 crore in Sindh. The promise of funds worth Rs 50 crore with assembly members is bribery. Institutions played part in securing the vote of confidence for Imran Khan.”
