PTI brings no-confidence motion against its own Punjab deputy speaker

ISLAMABAD: With the view to counter the PTI’s  to dissolve the Punjab Assembly, the PML-N has called a parliamentary party meeting today to finalise a strategy.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan, meanwhile, has also convened a meeting to discuss plan with his party leadership and consult on his announcement of quitting the assemblies.

Sources said that PML-N had not yet decided to move a no-confidence motion against Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi as it would be impossible for it to show the required 186 members.

PML-N Vice-President Hamza Shehbaz, however, has summoned a meeting of the Punjab parliamentary party to deliberate options. The sources said that it is more likely the PML-N would opt for asking Pervez Elahi to take a fresh vote of confidence.

Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf  Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday announced that the Haqeqi Azadi march would not move towards Islamabad, reasoning that he does not want to create  anarchy and chaos in the country.

Addressing the PTI rally here, he said that the government cannot afford Islamabad march. They cannot stop millions from entering capital.

Imran said that they could have created Sri Lanka-like situation in Pakistan.

But, the PTI chief said that the party has decided to quit all legislative assemblies to force the rulers to announce early elections.

He warned that if riots take place then things would get out of hands of everyone.

He said that he had tried his best not to take any step that could create chaos in the country.

Earlier, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan has said that he had overcome the fear of dying.

While giving an interview to a British newspaper, Imran Khan said that he knew that if he enters politics, his life will be in danger.

He said he had overcome the fear of dying and now eager to rejoin the long march after the attack.

Imran Khan said that his wife came to know about the attack on him from TV. She thought I was fine, she had no idea that I got 3 bullets, Imran said.

Earlier, PTI Chairman Imran Khan Thursday urged all party workers and supporters to participate.
