Pakistan’s Opposition on Monday submitted a no-trust move against Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, weeks after moving a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Pakistan has been on the edge since Opposition parties on March 8 submitted the no-confidence motion before the National Assembly Secretariat, alleging that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government led by Prime Minister Khan was responsible for the economic crisis and the spiralling inflation in the country.
The Opposition rushed to bring the no-confidence motion against Khan’s “blue-eyed” Buzdar to forestall the PTI government’s possible plan to dissolve the Punjab Assembly in case of the premier’s ouster.
The Opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) submitted the motion against Buzdar, 52, with the signatures of 127 lawmakers.
The Opposition also filed a requisition for the assembly session for taking up its resolution.
