No-trust motion to turn into ‘motion of ease’ for PM Imran: Interior Minister

Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has said that the no-confidence motion that the Opposition parties’ coalition is trying to bring against the incumbent government will turn into a “motion of ease” for Prime Minister Imran Khan after its failure.

The interior minister challenged the Opposition to bring the no-trust motion against the PTI-led government.
“They have been shouting [about the no-confidence motion] for two months but they should finally convene the assembly session and table a requisition to introduce the no-trust motion.”
“These people used to say that that they are not neutral but now even the Opposition is claiming that they are neutral but nothing in this world is neutral,” says Sheikh Rasheed.
He said that defeat is the Opposition’s fate, as he referred to the failure of a no-trust motion against former prime minister Benazir Bhutto by a 12 votes margin.
“They [Opposition] will lose with the same number of votes and the no-trust move will become a move of ease for Imran Khan,” the minister said.
Rasheed went on to say that the Opposition doesn’t have a future plan and that means they want to bring a “technocrat” government in the country.
If they get successful, it will create many problems for the country, he added.
It may be recalled that Defence Minister Pervez Khattak on Saturday claimed that over 15 Opposition members would go “missing” on the day the no-confidence motion is presented before the National Assembly.
Addressing a rally in his home district, the senior PTI leader claimed that the Opposition would face “embarrassment” when they would present the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan in the Parliament.
“Seats on the Opposition benches would remain empty on the day of the motion,” he predicted, adding that their motion would help them reassess their worth.
At the same time, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Molana Fazlur Rehman and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif expressed satisfaction with Opposition’s number game for no-trust move, sources said.
Fazl and Nawaz on Saturday expressed satisfaction over the Opposition’s numbers to secure the no-confidence motion against the PTI government.
The Opposition leaders held discussions to move the no-trust motion during a telephonic conversation, sources privy to the matter had said.
According to sources, Fazl briefed Nawaz on the Opposition’s progress and the two leaders agreed to oust the incumbent government.
