Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar said that Prime Minister Imran Khan neither will resign, nor the government can be toppled through undemocratic means.
“The opposition is trying unsuccessfully to put pressure on the government with long marches and threats of resignation”, he said, adding that completion of five-year constitutional term is democratic right of the government, which it will complete at all costs.
Punjab Governor was talking to a delegation led by members of PTI Punjab Mian Faisal Hayat, Abdul Hai Dasti and Rafaqat Ali at Governor’s House here on Sunday. During the meeting, the Punjab governor said that the opposition’s politics of rallies have been rejected by the people of Pakistan including Lahore.
“Today, the people are not with the politicians of anarchy and riots, but with the government and its policies under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. We have saved Pakistan from economic bankruptcy by getting it out of its worst economic problems. He said that the root cause of the problems facing Pakistan is the debt of billions of dollars taken by the previous leaders but we have promised the nation that they will liberate Pakistan from corruption, inflation and other problems including unemployment. The government is moving forward successfully because of its policies but the opposition is protesting to stop the country from moving forward. We have thwarted such elements before and still, the intentions of the opposition will not succeed.
The governor said that the people have given us the mandate of the government for five years so it is our constitutional and democratic right to govern and the opposition parties also have a democratic responsibility to not indulge in conspiracies that will destabilize the country but wait for the 2023 general elections. The public will give their verdict through the power of the vote.
Ch Sarwar said that if the opposition thinks that they will intimidate the government by threatening about long march or resigning from the assemblies, then it will not happen. Imran Khan will be the Prime Minister till 2023. Our government will complete its term and the opposition will not get anything but failure.
