LAHORE: PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to face the opposition’s no-confidence motion with courage, instead of acting like a ‘defeated man’.

“Imran Khan needs to have some patience and courage as a few days are left in the [execution of ] no-trust motion against him. He has already given up and moved to the opposition’s seat,” she said in a tweet on Wednesday.

She further said the premier was running from pillar to post to save his chair.

Meanwhile, PML-N Punjab Information Secretary Azma Bokhari predicts Imran Khan “will soon be in jail”.

She says the opposition will send the prime minister home through a constitutional move.

The whole “Tabdeeli sarkar” has got unnerved since the opposition submitted a no-trust motion against the premier in the National Assembly, she adds.

The PML-N lawmaker says that along with Imran Khan, Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar will also be sent packing and both will be held accountable for their deeds after losing power.
