The game of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is almost over. It is politics, not Test cricket, where he can improve his performance in the second innings and change the game.
The Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government received a massive blow as the main ally of the government, Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P), stuck a deal with the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). Imran doesn’t have enough members to save his government.
Opposition parties reach an agreement.
As per the local media reports, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tweeted early Wednesday morning that the united opposition and MQM had reached an agreement.
“Rabta committee MQM and PPP CEC will approve the said agreement.” We will then share details with the media at a press conference tomorrow. “Congratulations Pakistan,” Bilawal Bhutto Zardari wrote on Twitter.
Senior MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari also confirmed the deal on Twitter, saying the agreement has been finalized.
Last night’s political development of the important vote on the no-confidence motion has almost ended Imran Khan’s political innings. His party has lost the majority in the lower house of parliament.
172 is the magic figure
The Pakistani National Assembly has a strength of 342 members, and a party needs the support of at least 172 members to remain in government. The opposition is looking at the collapse of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf government.
Current government’s formation
The PTI-led coalition government came into force with the support of 179 members, but several members have decided to leave the coalition government, which has created a mind-boggling problem for Imran Khan’s government to prove their majority in the National Assembly. Currently, the opposition is in a comfortable position and has the support of 177 members of the national assembly.
Meanwhile, federal minister Asad Umar has said that Imran Khan is ready to show a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial to back his allegations in which he claimed that some people are trying to topple his government with the help of foreign funds.
Imran blames foreign powers
At a rally, Khan said, “Attempts are being made through foreign money to change the government in Pakistan. Our people are being used. Mostly unintentionally, some people are using money against us. We know from which places attempts are being made to pressure us. We have been threatened in writing, but we will not compromise on the national interest. “
The MQM-P took a decision to support the Opposition. This crucial decision came after both sides inked a draft prepared by Administrator Karachi Murtaza Wahab.
As per the report by Pakistan’s Geo TV, the important signatories on this draft are the leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Shahbaz Sharif, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, and Pakistan People’s Party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
MQM-P leader Faisal Subzwari confirmed the report about MQM-P siding with the opposition and tweeted, “The agreement between the joint opposition and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan has been finalised.”
The no-trust motion against the current Pakistan government led by Imran Khan is likely to take place on April 3.
At the outset, it seems Imran Khan’s government is almost certain to collapse. But politics is replete with uncertainty, like the game of cricket. Can Imran save his government? But the air is clear that Imran will have to leave the chair of the prime ministership. Only a miracle can save Imran Khan.
