Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has said imposing governor’s rule or bringing a no-trust motion in Punjab will remain a distant dream of the opposition. The provincial assembly will run as per the Constitution and not at the whim of someone.

The chief minister made these remarks during a meeting with former federal minister Pervez Khattak on Tuesday.

Both leaders discussed the current political situation in the country and reviewed the provincial assembly’s rules of procedures and possible technicalities in wake of the dissolution of the provincial assembly.

Pervaiz Elahi said the opposition should keep in mind that the provincial assembly will run as per the rules and the Constitution.

He highlighted that the popularity of the former premier Imran Khan has increased manifold. Imran has raised awareness among the masses about self-esteem, he said.

“The unnatural alliance of 13 political parties is breathing its last,” he maintained.

The chief minister said the incompetent rulers have ruined the lives of common citizens and the time is not far when these rulers will start fighting with each other.

He underscored that Imran Khan’s politics is beyond his personality and personal gains contrary to the current rulers of Islamabad. “We will continue to support Imran Khan as we did in the past,” he maintained.
