Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Deputy Secretary-General and Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) Attaullah Tarar has said that the dissolution of Punjab Assembly will be stopped at any cost.
While talking to the media, Attaullah Tarar said an important session was chaired by PML-N President and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif today (Monday) to discuss the overall political situation. He said that PML-N will make maximum efforts to stop the dissolution of the assemblies and will not let anyone steal the mandate and the assemblies will complete their tenure. Tarar said that the coalition parties will also be consulted tomorrow (Tuesday). “In today’s session, no-trust motion was also discussed. We will make maximum efforts to stop the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly. We will try to restore Hamza Shehbaz’s government in Punjab.”
He said that PML-N submitted a petition for the Speaker’s elections in the Punjab Assembly. He said that the case should be heard at the earliest regardless of its verdict. Attaullah Tarar said that they are willing to complete the tenure of the Punjab Assembly. He added that Hamza Shehbaz will hold a meeting with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leaders soon.
Meanwhile, PML-N Punjab spokesperson Azma Bukhari has said that all options would be used for stopping the dissolution of Punjab Assembly. Talking to the media after parliamentary committee meeting of the PML-N, chaired by Hamza Shehbaz at Model Town on Monday, she said that in the Punjab Assembly, the PTI and the PML-N votes were equal in number, adding that Imran Khan had failed in all his moves so far and he would also fail to get dissolved the provincial assembly. The PML-N spokesperson said that there was a constitutional tenure of all assemblies, which should not be altered.
She said that the PML-N would not let assemblies dissolved. She said, “We have seen what the PTI did over the matter of resignations in the National Assembly.” Azma Bukhari said that the PTI parliamentarians were forced to tender resignations. Why the people of Punjab should suffer for one person’s wishes, she questioned. She said that if certain people wanted to tender resignations, they might do so, and by-polls would be held on the vacant seats.
PML-N leader Attaullah Tarar said that the PML-N would use all options to ensure that assemblies complete their constitutional tenure. He said that ally parties would be consulted over the matter of vote of no-confidence motion and the Punjab governor could ask the CM to seek a vote of confidence. He said, “Many PTI parliamentarians do not want dissolution of the assembly.”
