Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah claimed that Pervaiz Elahi did not have the numbers to take the vote of confidence so he was avoiding that.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders held a press conference in Lahore in which Rana Sanaullah said that Imran Khan had announced three things including the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and thirdly he said that PTI lawmakers would submit their resignations by appearing in the National Assembly.
The home minister said that it was the constitutional duty of the Governor Punjab to ask for a vote of confidence before dissolution of the provincial assembly. “On one hand the chief minister was saying that 99 percent of the parliamentary party was not in favour of dissolving the assembly and on the other hand he was saying that he has signed the summary.
The interior minister demanded that the apex court should take suo motu of this and save Punjab from the destruction of economic corruption. Rana Sanaullah claimed that Pervaiz Elahi did not have full numbers’ support and his question was why these people were not dissolving the assembly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The federal minister said that they had started preparing for elections in Punjab. They had brought the country out of default and were trying their best for economic stability but these people were conspiring to disrupt the stability. He said that they were not running away from the elections.
Federal Minister for Railways Saad Rafique while addressing a press conference said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his facilitators did not allow them to work. He said that when the governor felt that the chief minister should take the vote of confidence he fulfilled the constitutional responsibility but Pervez Elahi avoided taking a vote of confidence.
He said that justice was not done in the court’s decision yesterday and their legal experts were examining various options to go to the higher judiciary against the decision. He said that there was a possibility that they will challenge the decision in the legal forum.
