Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday claimed that the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) allies were no longer with the government, following his meeting with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) in Karachi.
Fazl announced the shifting alliances during a presser alongside MQM-P’s top leadership after he met the government’s ally at their head office in Karachi’s Bahadurabad area.
“They (MQM-P) will announce that they are with us in a day or two […] after meeting the MQM-P leadership, I am completely satisfied that the no-confidence motion will be successful,” the PDM chief said.
The development comes as the vote on the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan draws close. NA Speaker Asad Qaiser has called the session of the lower house on March 25.
In today’s press conference, Fazl also said that PM Khan’s choice of words during the recent rallies in Khyber Pakhtunkwa was not that of an “honourable person”. “I think it is disrespectful to have such people assume such big offices,” Fazl said.
The premier says that he is prepared to face everything the opposition may use against him – but he has also stepped up meetings with his allies.
