Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Q, said on Thursday that Prime Minister Imran Khan was “not worried at all” about a possible no-confidence move against him by the opposition.
Pervaiz, who was speaking to the media in Lahore, made this remark in response to a reporter’s question referring to a statement by his son, Water Resources Minister Moonis Elahi, regarding the opposition stepping up efforts and approaching PML-Q leaders to seek their support for tabling a no-confidence motion against the prime minister.
After Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who heads the Pakistan Democratic Movement, an anti-government alliance of opposition parties, announced on February 11 that they would be tabling a no-confidence motion against the government, multiple leaders from opposition parties have been holding meetings with PML-Q’s Elahi and his brother, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
When a reporter referred to the statement and asked Pervaiz Elahi whether he had the same message for the prime minister as Moonis, he laughed and then replied: “He [PM Imran] is not worried. He is not worried at all.”
