Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Wednesday delivered a fiery speech in Karachi against the Opposition. He said that the submission of the no-confidence motion is the “political death” of the Opposition.

The prime minister said, “I was thinking that somehow if only I could get a hold of their neck, and God listened to my prayers and they submitted a no-trust move. Now they have been trapped and their no-confidence move is going to backfire.”

The prime minister announced he was going to tour interior Sindh soon and that it was his mission to rid the region of the injustices done to it.
