ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi has ruled out imposition of Governor’s Rule in Sindh and vowed to defeat the no-confidence motion in a democratic and political manner as per the Constitution.
Talking to media, along with Federal Ministers Chaudhry Fawad Hussain and Asad Umar, in Islamabad on Friday, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said these decisions have been taken at PTI’s Political Committee, which met in the federal capital on Friday with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the chair.
He said the political committee has decided to serve show-cause notices on dissident PTI Members of the National Assembly and file presidential references against them. He also made it clear that there is no room for minus Imran Khan formula in PTI.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi expressed the belief that all allies will not leave the government and they will take political decision. He said PML-Q leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi hails from a political family and he cannot trust PML-N, which has always created hurdles in his way. He said MQM will also go with the government as it is well aware of the disservice done by the PPP Government to the people of Karachi.
The Foreign Minister, however, urged the dissident MNAs, to rethink their decision as going against Imran Khan will ruin their political future. He said the government is ready to listen to their concerns. He, however, made it clear that no hurdle will be created in the way of parliamentarians, who want to go to the National Assembly to cast their votes.
During the press conference, Fawad Chaudhry said the SC had been approached to clarify “whether Constitution allows horse-trading”.
“We have also asked the Supreme Court that lawmakers who will be disqualified in this case, whether they will be allowed to contest elections again or will they be disqualified for life,” he added. He said the reference for this purpose would be filed on Monday.
With multiple PTI MNAs coming out in the open against Prime Minister Imran Khan, Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar announced on Friday that the party would issue show-cause notices to its dissident lawmakers for allegedly allying with the Opposition.
Asad Umar said that the party was already working on the show-cause notice. ”I will sign the show-cause notices today and will be issued afterwards,” announced Umar. He added that lawmakers who want to review their decision can do so in the reply.
