Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, while addressing the National Assembly session, said to the speaker and the chair currently presiding over the session that they were committing contempt of court as well as violation of the Constitution by delaying voting on the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“Imran Khan has lost majority. We are ready to debate the foreign conspiracy. But we ask you to conduct the voting first as per the court’s orders,” he said to the chair.
The PPP chairman further said that he knew who was giving this advice.[to delay the motion] to Imran Khan. “Those who are advising him will get him in trouble, because they are thinking about themselves and not him,” he said.
Rubbishing allegations of a ‘foreign conspiracy’, Bilawal asked the foreign minister why he was not present at the national security committee meeting. He added that the government brought up ‘foreign conspiracy’ only when it realised that it has lost majority.
Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that Imran Khan was installed into power, but he has now lost that support. “He is hiding from competition,” he said.
Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi made a lengthy speech discussing the alleged ‘foreign conspiracy’ against the government. “We were not lying,” he said.
Senior journalist Hamid Mir, while talking during Geo News transmission, said that the government plans to delay the session by making its members deliver lengthy speeches that would delay the voting.
