Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah has claimed that Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry had been in contact with him as the parliament geared up for a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Speaking on a television talk show on Thursday, Sanaullah said that if the chief justice and other “respectable judges of the Supreme Court” had not given remarks on the no-trust move, the speaker of the Tiger Force [in reference to NA speaker Asad Qaiser] would have indefinitely postponed the session of the lower house.
Sanaullah was speaking regarding the Supreme Court’s hearing on a presidential reference that seeks an interpretation of the Article 63(A) of the constitution.
The PML-N leader also went on to claim that multiple lawmakers of the current government had been approaching the opposition ahead of the no-confidence motion. He said that he told the information minister that “he had only one or half a day left for the decision”.
Sanaullah said that after Attorney-General Khalid Javed’s assurance, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf would not stage a sit-in at D-Chowk.
