Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief will himself step down as prime minister in a matter of six month, veteran PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah has predicted.

Hinting at possible changes in the federal cabinet in the next 10 days, PM Imran interestingly said that early elections in the country couldn’t be ruled out. The premier also said that he only came to know about the sudden increase in dollar’s value through the news.

"The PTI is unable to run the government, and keeping in consideration the state of the affairs, Imran Khan will himself resign," Sanaullah said while talking to media outside the top court on Tuesday.

The senior PML-N leader said the Opposition is allowing the government some time because the country cannot afford elections only after a time-span of three to six months.

Imran Khan-led govt destined for self-destruction, says Marriyum

If need be, he added, the change of government should be in accordance with the Constitution.

Sanaullah further said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is targeting only the political leaders belonging to the Opposition, and such action are not being taken against any ministers.

On Monday, senior PML-N leader Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that no one needs to topple the Imran Khan-led government, as the PTI chief and his Cabinet are ‘capable of self-destruction.

Terming PM Imran’s remarks on early elections a matter of grave concern for the nation, Marriyum had said it seemed the premier had realised that he couldn’t run the government. The PML-N leader went on to add that the prime minister didn’t have confidence in his own government.
