Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and former federal minister Moonis Elahi discussed matters pertaining to the rules and regulations of the provincial assembly and other legal affairs with Speaker Sabtain Khan on Saturday.
According to an official statement, the chief minister said on the occasion that he was waiting for a signal from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to dissolve the Punjab Assembly.
He vowed to continue to stand with Khan. “Whosoever we side with, we continue to stand with him through the thick and thin” he asserted.
Detailed consultation on the political situation, matters pertaining to the rules and regulations of the assembly and other legal affairs along with the technical aspects of constitutional scenario was held during the meeting.
The chief minister and the speaker resolved to counter what they termed unconstitutional ploys of the opposition parties in a befitting manner.
The chief minister said the opposition parties were making claims disproportionate to their support in the assembly.
He said talk about imposing governor rule and filing a no-trust motion in the province would ultimately prove to be tall claims.
CM Pervaiz Elahi remarked that the prime minister ruling over a 27km area had started feeling the heat of the current political situation. “We are waiting for a hint from Imran Khan to dissolve the Punjab Assembly,” he added.
Former federal minister Moonis Elahi said Imran Khan was the sole leader of the nation. Such a dynamic leader was found after a long period, he added.
He said those striving to create misunderstandings would face failure as before as the post of the chief minister had been entrusted by Imran Khan.
Punjab Assembly Speaker Sabtain Khan said the Muttahida Ulem Board amendment bill and the Punjab Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities bill would be submitted in the next session, while legislation on The University of Quran and Seerat Studies bill will also be done.
“We are united under the able leadership of Imran Khan who is the real leader of Pakistan,” he asserted.
