Imran Khan’s govt surviving on mere seven votes: Former Pak PM
Former Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that Imran Khan’s govt is surviving on the basis of mere seven votes.
“Imran Khan and Usman Buzdar’s seats of power are in the hands of Jahangir Tareen, the government is standing on the basis of a mere seven votes,” Abbasi said while speaking to the media in Karachi on Saturday.
He also said that Imran Khan’s government was in a weak position since the beginning.
The Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader said it is a surprising thing that a senior member of the PTI (Jahangir Tareen) is saying that he is being backed into a corner.
“Jahangir Tareen’s nomination in cases has nothing to do with the sugar [crisis].”
Noting that several Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers had attended a dinner reception hosted by Tareen a night earlier, Abbasi said: “More than forty government officials were in attendance. They expressed a lack of confidence in their own government,” he said.
PTI stalwart Jahangir Tareen and his son are facing multiple cases, including a multi-billion sugar scam, money laundering and fraud. A Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Lahore investigation team registered a case of alleged fraud of Rs 3.14 billion on March 22 against them.
