Pakistan Political Updates: Imran Khan sacrifices Punjab CM to save his chair, offers to rebel PML-Q

Islamabad: Usman Buzdar Resignation, Chief Minister of Punjab province of Pakistan has resigned fearing no-confidence motion. Usman Buzdar is considered a close leader of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan. Following his resignation, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has declared PML-Q leader Chaudhry Parvez Elahi as the chief ministerial candidate of Punjab. The PML-Q had announced to support the opposition on the no-confidence motion brought against the Imran Khan government. Now after being offered the chief minister’s post, it is expected that PML-Q will now support Imran Khan.

127 MLAs had signed against Bujdar
The opposition parties moved the no-confidence motion against Buzdar in a hurry. They feared that the Imran Khan government was about to announce the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly even before the no-confidence motion was discussed in the Parliament. Punjab’s opposition Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) moved a no-confidence motion against 52-year-old Chief Minister Buzdar, signed by 127 MLAs. It was said in the no-confidence motion that Chief Minister Buzdar has lost the confidence of the House.

Shahbaz Gill, political advisor to Prime Minister Imran Khan, tweeted that Buzdar has submitted his resignation to the Prime Minister. Later, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farooq Habib also confirmed Buzdar’s resignation. Habib further said that the PML-Q had decided to support the government in the no-confidence motion moved against PM Imran of the United Opposition. In such a situation, the Imran government is trying to do it in its favor by giving the post of Chief Minister to PMLN-Q. The PML-Q is an ally of the government which has 10 seats in the Punjab Assembly.

Buzdar accused of ignoring the constitution
In the no-confidence motion of the opposition, it was said that Bujdar has violated the constitution by not carrying out the work of Punjab province with a population of 11 crores in accordance with the constitution. The opposition alleged in it that the Chief Minister had acted against the spirit of democracy during the last three-and-a-half years. After submitting the no-confidence motion, PML-N legislator Rana Mashhood said the opposition would also move a no-confidence motion against National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser and Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani.

Is March 25 the last day of Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s government?

Political atmosphere is hot in Pakistan
Pakistan’s political temperature seems to be rising due to the no-confidence motion brought against the Imran government on March 8, the result of which can be seen by the end of next week. The opposition would need 172 votes in the 342-member National Assembly to topple the Imran government. Imran Khan came to power in 2018 with a promise to create a Naya Pakistan, but he failed to tackle the fundamental problems that gave the opposition an opportunity to attack. The PTI has 155 members in the National Assembly and they too will need 172 members to save the government.
