Opposition’s no confidence motion can’t succeed: Fawad

“All allies are with us, they expressed full confidence in leadership of PTI”: Chaudhry Fawad


ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said on Sunday that the Opposition will never succeed in no-confidence motion.

This he said during a meeting with Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser.

Chaudhry Fawad Hussain will respond to the opposition’s no-confidence motion in a constitutional manner.

“All allies are with us and they have expressed full confidence in the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf”, Chaudhry Fawad said.

“We have the full potential to defend the opposition’s no-confidence motion,” he said.

The minister said that Pakistan Democratic Movement had internal differences and it lacked unity in its ranks.

During the meeting, both the leaders discussed issues of mutual interests including the overall situation in the country.

Important issues related to the forthcoming session of the National Assembly were also discussed in the meeting. Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Sunday came hard on the opposition for another attempt to oust the democratically elected government, saying, “It has no guts and prowess to bring a no-trust motion.”

The opposition, he added, had made such an abortive bid earlier and its current endeavour would also meet the same fate.

“The no trust move can succeed only when the opposition parties are standing on their own feet, but not through beseeching, entreating or hatching conspiracies,” the minister said in a media talk here.

Fawad said the very next day of their announcement, he had challenged the opposition to table the no-confidence motion. However, they had not yet given any date for the purpose as they had preempted their defeat.

Pakistan, he said, could not be handed over to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who did not have any political prowess. The people could not be deceived any more as they had tried them earlier.

The Pakistan Peoples Party, the minister said, had never done ‘religious politics’, but its Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari now stood by Maulana Fazlur Rehman who, he believed, could bring out students of seminaries for the public meetings and long marches. Bilawal knew that his party was no more a crowd puller and, therefore, he was relying on the Jamiat Ulema-e Islam-Fazl chief for the survival of his politics, he added.

The minister held Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif responsible for relegating their once mainstream political parties to regional ones, and said now their last hope was Maulana Fazl, who, ironically, failed to blackmail the government in the past by bringing the seminary students to Islamabad.

“This time it will not be different and we will get rid of their blackmailing once for and all,” he said in an apparent reference to Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who used the seminary students for showing his political prowess.
