Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday said that the Opposition parties’ announcement to present a no-confidence motion was another “attempt at a bargaining chip for a fresh deal”.
He said that PTI legislators and their allies in parliament would collectively defeat such attempts by the Opposition leaders to evade accountability.
The minister, who is also the vice chairman of the ruling PTI, quoted Prime Minister Imran Khan as saying that there is zero possibility for an NRO for the accused politicians.
On his twitter handle, the vice-chairman wrote: “Announcement to present no-confidence motion is an attempt at a bargaining chip for a fresh deal. PTI parliamentarians & our allies will collectively defeat their attempts to evade accountability. As PM Imran Khan has consistently stated, the possibility of an NRO is zero.”
