Fawad optimistic about return of 4 PTI MNAs to party’s fold


Minister of Information Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday expressed hope that four dissident Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers would return to the party’s ranks today.

Flanked by Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi, the information minister’s remarks came while addressing the media in Islamabad.

“One of the MNAs has replied and said that he had not breached party discipline. The reply of another MNA is expected soon. Minster Asad Umar is meeting with him as we speak,” the information minister said.

Regarding government allies, Fawad said discussions were held yesterday with with PML-Q and the process would continue tonight.

On the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, Fawad said people would disagree with the oppositions’ stance.

“Tomorrow, in the historic gathering, the people would snub the corrupt practices of horse-trading. It is for the first time after Zulfikar Ali Bhutto that the foreign policy of Pakistan is free, the wheel of the economy is turning in the right direction. The people would make sure that the conspiracy against what Prime Minister Imran Khan has achieved fails,” the minister said.

He also urged the people coming to tomorrow’s rally to maintain discipline and follow the guidelines provided by the Supreme Court and the Islamabad High Court.
