PDM’s move of a no-confidence motion a failed attempt against Govt: Asad
Previous govt’s ignored South Punjab, PTI's federal, Punjab govt’s will soon announce a mega-development package
BAHAWALPUR: Federal Minister for Planning, Development, Reforms and Special Initiatives Asad Umar on Sunday said, the PDM parties don’t trust on each other and their move of a no-confidence motion is a failed attempt against the government. He made these remarks at Sadiqgarh Palace, Dera Nawab Sahab near here.
Asad Umar said that previous governments had ignored South Punjab but PTI’s federal and Punjab governments will soon announce a mega-development package for the region under South Punjab Secretariat. He said that the addition of Prince Bahawal Khan Abbasi to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf will help in strengthening the Party in South Punjab.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Affairs and Chief Whip MNA Aamir Dogar, Parliamentary Secretary MNA Kanwal Shouzab, MNA Farooq-e-Azam Malik, Secretary Information PTI South Punjab MPA Samiullah Chaudhry, MPA Sahabzada Gazin Abbasi, and others were present at the occasion. Meanwhile, In a press statement, the foreign minister said that it was the duty of PTI members and its allied parties in the parliament to defeat such a move by the opposition.
The opposition had started its negative activities after 2018 elections which had exposed their intentions from the day first. They even did not allow the prime minister to deliver his maiden speech in the assembly, he added.
The PTI vice-chairman further noted that the opposition had repeatedly failed in their efforts in the past and declared that they would meet the same fate again.
Qureshi said “The PTI members of the parliament will strongly resist such move and defend their captain. The opposition parties would have been in the government if they had the required votes,” he added.
He said the parliament was passing through the fourth year of its tenure and the local governments’ elections were underway and under such a situation, he thought that no politician or a parliamentarian, having a political grasp, would divert attention from the local bodies polls and join opposition’s ranks.
Qureshi said the opposition parties lacked unity in their ranks, perhaps the purported motion of no confidence could be their requirement and desire and due to a pressure exerted by the pending legal cases.
