‘Himat hai toh governor raj laga ke dikhao’: Bilawal tells PM Imran Khan

  • “If you have the guts, then impose governor’s rule, Imran Khan!” Bilawal says.
  • “All of us will come to Islamabad and respond,” PPP chairman says.
  • PM Imran Khan, however, rules out imposing governor’s rule in Sindh.

ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari Friday warned the federal government he would respond if it imposes the governor’s rule in Sindh — where the PPP is in power.

“If you have the guts, then impose governor’s rule, Imran Khan! Don’t delay it, impose it today,” Bilawal dared the PM as the political tensions rise in the country with the vote on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“InshAllah, all of us will come to Islamabad and respond,” the PPP chairman said.

However, PM Imran Khan ruled out imposing the governor’s rule in Sindh, sources told Geo News Friday but decided to move the Supreme Court against the disgruntled members of the ruling PTI.

Chairing the PTI’s political committee today, the prime minister vowed to battle the Opposition and was confident of the failure of the no-confidence motion against him.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed had a day earlier proposed the premier take steps in order to stop the “horse-trading” from taking place at the Sindh House.

During the meeting, the majority of the participants opposed the move after the interior minister presented a summary in this regard.

“Only two federal ministers backed the idea,” sources said.

The PM, however, issued directives to deliberate further on the issue, saying the situation will deteriorate further by imposing the governor’s rule.

The Sindh House grabbed the spotlight after it was revealed on Thursday that around 24 PTI MNAs had been staying at the Sindh House in Islamabad — and some of them had publicly announced to go against the party.

In a press conference after the meeting, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said all the disgruntled PTI MPs who have sought refuge in Sindh House ahead of the no-confidence motion to return, assuring them that no action will be taken against them.

Shah Mehmood, founder of the PTI, and others found not guilty in Azadi March case

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
