Federal ministers on Thursday said that Supreme Court verdict on Deputy Speaker’s ruling about no-confidence motion has buried the narrative of foreign conspiracy to oust the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The minister further said that Imran Khan put entire country on stake just to save his rule.
