Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that it is expected that the elected members of the Assembly on party tickets will not vote against the Prime Minister. The government’s decision to go to the Supreme Court for the clarification of Article 63 on the issue of floor-crossing of members is 100% correct. It should be clear what penalty will be meted out to those who are involved in floor-crossing.

It is the responsibility of the opposition to complete 172 votes to make the no-confidence motion a success. The government will contest constitutionally and democratically. He was addressing the convocation of Lahore College for Women University and talking to the media on Monday while on the occasion, the Governor Punjab also conferred the honorary degree of Doctorate on Noshina Mubarak, a member of the British Parliament, and also distributed awards among the position holder’s students.

Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that filing presidential reference in the Supreme Court on the issue of floor-crossing of members of the Assembly is not surrender but is a constitutional and democratic right of the government. The court must clarify once and for all that if a member is found involved in floor crossing, how long will he be disqualified and what will be the penalty for him. If the government seeks guidance from the Supreme Court on any matter, then no one should object to it.

Replying to a question on the motion of no-confidence of the opposition against the Prime Minister, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the motion of no-confidence has been presented by the opposition, and now it is the responsibility of the opposition to get 172 votes for its approval.

As far as the members of the Assembly of Tareek-e-Insaf are concerned, there is no doubt that these members have a constitutional, legal and moral obligation to vote according to the party policy and not to support any other party.

I expect that our members of the Assembly will not vote against the party. Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the decision to convene the OIC conference in Pakistan and to fully welcome the participants of the conference of all political and religious parties of Pakistan. There will be important consultations and decisions on other issues, including Kashmir, Palestine, and Afghanistan.

Addressing the convocation, Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that I firmly believe that the dream of development of Pakistan cannot be realized without the participation of women in the journey of development. Educated women must come forward in practical work.

The government is committed to providing social security and confidence to women. We strive to restore the confidence of our women by addressing the issues of domestic violence and gender inequality so that they should be able to use their best skills in the journey of collective development of the nation, he added.
