The PML-N leader and former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday said that no-confidence motions in the National Assembly and the Punjab Assembly will be for the country and not for power.
Talking to newsmen here, Khaqan Abbasi said Prime Minister Imran Khan had warned the opposition in his speech but the National Assembly remained silent.
He said, “His own Finance Minister was defeated by Members National Assembly (MNAs). The minister should have quit on moral grounds afterward.”
“The incumbent regime has done horse-trading in the Senate elections by giving Rs70 crore in Balochistan and Rs35 crore in Sindh. The promise of funds worth Rs50 crore with assembly members is bribery.
Institutions played part in ‘winning over’ the vote of confidence for Imran Khan.”
Abbasi said what they have seen in the recently held Senate polls was not appreciable.
“In the vote of confidence, all the boundaries were crossed as people bought not from the opposition but from the government as well.”
Khaqan Abbasi said today parliament is paralyzed in the country.
Referring to the PTI workers and PML-N leaders clash outside the Parliament, Abbasi said everyone saw what happened during the press conference on March 6. He asked whether PML-N should now hold a press conference with armed protection and will the government now run the country as per these traditions.—INP
