Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid maintained Sunday that Prime Minister Imran Khan had become very popular due to incompetence of the opposition.
“When Imran Khan comes out [of Parliament], they [the opposition] will arrest him. His arrest will trigger new protests in the country. How will 172 people [parliamentarians] compete with 220 million people?” stated Sheikh Rashid.
“Democracy is in danger; ‘system’ can also be wrapped up; there may be new elections; there may be 155 resignations,” added he.
The interior minister’s statement comes in a scenario when the opposition appears quite confident to remove Prime Minister Imran Khan through a vote of no-confidence in the Parliament.
On the other hand, the opposition in Punjab Assembly also seems poised to gain a victory in election of the new leader of the House after the resignation of former chief minister Usman Buzdar.
