Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) dissident Member of National Assembly Basit Bukhari said that a letter written by the European Union was a routine affair which Prime Minister Imran Khan inflated beyond proportion while referring to the claim by the premier of receiving a “written threat”.
Speaking at a talk show on a local television channel on Monday, Bukhari said that PM Khan had turned to exploiting religion in politics when he understood that he had lost the game. The disgruntled lawmaker promised to make the no-confidence motion a success. He predicted that the premier would be sent home to Bani Gala next Monday.
Meanwhile, another dissenting lawmaker Ramesh Kumar chided Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, saying that he should not have made bold statements if he ultimately sided with PM Khan.
Kumar brought up the interview of the PML-Q leader in which he had strongly criticized the premier earlier this month. He went on to say that the prime minister proclaimed that he would not remove Usman Buzdar from his post of Punjab chief minister. However, he had now removed him, he added.
The disgruntled lawmaker said that he was confident that the dissidents would stay committed to the no-trust move.
