PM Imran Khan’s daring challenge to the opposition

SIALKOT: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the Constitutional way to send a government packing is to table a no-confidence motion in the Parliament and dared the Opposition to do so.

"If the Opposition seeks to move a no-confidence motion, they should come and do so in the assemblies," he said, criticising the call for mass resignations from assemblies by Pakistan Democratic Movement chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

His remarks came during a conversation with journalists in the city in which he touched upon several issues, including the current political climate in the country, Pakistan's economy, corruption, and the aftermath of coronavirus.

Speaking further of the resignations, which the Opposition says will be handed in for both provincial as well as national assemblies, the prime minister said: "If they hand in resignations, we will hold by-elections on those seat and will emerge even stronger."

"I do not understand what they aim to do," he added.
