Pakistan Tehreek-Insaf on Monday condemned the tactics being used by opposition parties to convince lawmakers to cross the floor.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, speaking to the media following the party’s core committee meeting, alleged that billions were being offered to lawmakers to vote against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“Our lawmakers have turned down money from the opposition and the party will stand with Imran Khan,” he said.
The information minister further informed that there was consensus that the National Assembly session should be summoned at the earliest.
“Three days (21-23) are very important for Pakistan,” Fawad said adding that foreign ministers of 47 states have so far confirmed their presence in the OIC.
He further said that though summoning the NA session was the speaker’s prerogative, the PTI wanted that the session should not clash with the OIC moot.
Chaudhry Fawad went on to say that Prime Minister Imran Khan was fighting against multiple conspiracies.
He said Pakistan, under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, has emerged as a country with an independent foreign policy.
“Freedom of Pakistan will not be compromised and Imran Khan will not be blackmailed at any cost. He said opposition will be surprised with PTI moves,” he reaffirmed.
He was confident that the allied parties will stand by the government.
Senior PTI leader Aamir Mehmood Kiani said that the public gathering to be organised by PTI at D-chowk will be historic and over one million people from across the country will attend.
Kiani said the date of the gathering is yet to be decided by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The core committee members including Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Shafqat Mehmood, Asad Umer, Asad Qaiser, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, Atif Khan, Shireen Mazari, Shiekh Rasheed Ahmed, Hammad Azhar, Ali Amin Gandapur, Ali Zaidi, Amir Dogar, Imran Ismael, Ghulam Sarwar, Babar Awan, Chaudhry Sarwar, Qasim Khan Suri, Khusro Bakhtiar, Haleem Adil Sheikh, Shahbaz Gill, Arbab Ghulam Rahim and others attended the meeting.
