According to details, the premier will spend the weekend in Islamabad’s Bani Gala with his family. No government officials of party members will meet Imran Khan on Saturday and Sunday. It is pertinent here to mention that the premier used to chair Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) meetings at his Bani Gala residence at the weekends and hold sessions with party leaders and government officials.
Moreover, Prime Minister Imran Khan has summoned a session of the federal cabinet on Tuesday, while the seven-point agenda of the upcoming meeting was also issued.

Sources said that the premier will take the cabinet members into confidence over the decisions taken by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) core committee which had met on November 2. The committee had decided not to accept any unconstitutional demand of protesting Maulana Fazlur Rehman-led Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) including the prime minister’s resignation.
The recommendations made by the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) are likely to be approved besides giving go-ahead to the decisions taken by the cabinet’s special committee for the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, sources added.
