Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has given Prime Minister Imran Khan a 24-hour ultimatum to resign and dissolve the assembly or be prepared to be impeached through a vote of no confidence, local media reported.
Speaking to Awami March participants in Lalamusa on Monday, the PPP leader said Imran Khan, along with the Pakistani government of Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), would be evicted by all democratic means, The News International reported.
The ‘chosen one’ (Imran Khan) has become so afraid that he has started to abuse and insult his political opponents, the PPP leader said.
Referring to the alleged link between Imran Khan’s government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), he said the country has rejected the government’s economic policies and is protesting ‘PTIMF’ (PTI + IMF).
Mr Bhutto-Zardari blamed the “puppet” prime minister for the country’s economic crisis and said the common man was drowning in a tsunami of inflation, media reported.
Imran Khan’s government begged for loans that were three times more than any received in the past, the PPP leader said, adding that the people can no longer bear the burden of his gaffes.
“A Satan of Pindi [Sheikh Rashid Ahmed] has said that Imran Khan will not sit at home after his resignation. He is right, because Imran Khan will be behind bars. He will be held accountable in the event of foreign funding,” the publication quoted the PPP leader as saying.
Meanwhile, as Pakistan continues to grapple with a severe economic crisis, opposition parties have labeled the relief announced by Imran Khan’s government as insufficient. They continue to put pressure on the Pakistani Prime Minister.
Opposition parties are throwing hatred overboard to oust Imran Khan by filing a no-confidence vote against his government. Imran Khan, however, expressed confidence in the failure of this motion and said the opposition will face repercussions if it fails.
