Prime Minister Imran Khan, in an address to the nation on Sunday shattered the dream of Shehbaz Sharif of becoming Prime Minister and said said he had advised President Arif Alvi to dissolve assemblies.
His announcement came moments after National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri, who was chairing today’s session, dismissed the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, terming it a contradiction of Article 5 of the Constitution.
He congratulated the nation for the no-trust motion being dismissed, saying the deputy speaker had “rejected the attempt of changing the regime [and] the foreign conspiracy”.
The premier said he had been receiving messages from many people who were worried, adding that “treason” was being committed in front of the nation. “I want to say, ‘ghabrana nahi hai’ (do not worry). God is watching over Pakistan.”
