Rana threatens to seal CM House if Elahi won’t take confidence vote

Rana Sanaullah arrest

In view of the no-trust motion submitted against Chief Minister Parvez Elahi, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Tuesday threatened to seal the Punjab CM House if the much-anticipated session of the provincial assembly will not take place today (Wednesday).

Talking to journalists in Lahore, the security czar said: “Punjab CM House will be sealed if Chaudhry Parvez Elahi does not take the vote of confidence or the assembly session does not take place.” The Punjab chief minister will have to take the vote of no-confidence even if the provincial assembly session is not held, Sanaullah added.

“Elahi will lose the chief ministership if he does not take the trust vote,” he added.

Responding to a question, the interior minister said that the governor has the power to convene the provincial assembly session.

Referring to CM Elahi’s recent statement, Sanaullah said that the no-trust move must come when the chief minister himself said that 99% of lawmakers are against the dissolution of the assembly.
