Yesterday, PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry has said that the party’s leadership had approved dissolution of both Punjab and Khyber Pakhtukhwa assemblies.

He added that as you all know, PTI is quitting the assemblies. He said, therefore, the party’s senior leadership has approved the decision to dissolve the assemblies.

Fawad said that Imran Khan has spoken to KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan. He would would hold a meeting with Punjab CM Elahi later this week.

“The meetings of the parliamentary parties of both the assemblies have been summoned for later this week, following which, the assemblies will be dissolved,” he said speaking to journalists.

Fawad further said added that the PTI would announce the date of the Punjab and KP assemblies’ dissolution in the next two to three days.

The chief minister said that he owe the Punjab government to Imran Khan. He added: “We stand with those whom we support.”. In a video statement he said that PML-Q is an ally of the PTI.

Elahi said that Imran Khan’s plan entered its decisive round during the Pindi rally. He added that when the PTI starts resigning from the assemblies, the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s government would start falling on its own.
