TAXILA: Central leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Ahsan Iqbal on Wednesday claimed that Imran Khan would lose no-confidence motion on March 28, and after his departure an interim government would be set up.

Addressing a workers convention organised by PML-N Punjab chapter in Ahata near Taxila he said no-confidence was their democratic and constitutional right.

He said the speaker should have convened the session on March 22, but he violated the constitution by convening the session on March 25. He should now face trial under Article 6, the PML-N leader added.

He accused the PTI government of harassing its political rivals through National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Mr Iqbal said the government was trying to silent every voice being raised against its incompetence.

He was of the view that the country was in the grip of unprecedented chaos .

He alleged that the incumbent government had no regard for constitution, democratic values and parliament. He urged the Supreme Court to take a suo motu notice of statements given by the government ministers.

PML-N Punjab President Rana Sanaullah in his address claimed that the container politics had come to an end.

He urged the PML-N office bearers at provincial, divisional and district levels to bring party workers from across the country to the long march.

He said the march was due to be held on March 26 but had now been rescheduled for March 28 due to the National

Assembly session and hearing in the Supreme Court.

He said that during his two terms as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif strived to make the country one of the developed countries .

He said that in 1998 when neighbouring India conducted nuclear test, Pakistan detonated eight nuclear warheads as compared to five in India under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif.

He said under the current circumstances, it would be better for Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign as he had lost majority in the house.

Former deputy speaker of the National Assembly Murtaza Javaid Abbasi in his address said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s days were numbered as he would not survive the no-trust motion.

He was of the view that due to massive corruption, unemployment, inflation and price hike, the no-trust move was the demand of the people.
