Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked his cabinet members quit the federal cabinet if they have a problem with the decisions taken by the government.
According to Geo News, the PM told his ministers to “take ownership of the government’s decision” and if they cannot do that then they could resign from their posts.
“In case of their failure to toe the party line, I will decide myself whether to keep them in the cabinet or not,” the PM was quoted as saying.
During the meeting, the PM said that there were no reforms in the state institutions. The governance system also did not improve, he said, responding to a briefing given by Institutional Reforms Adviser Ishrat Hussain on the situation of the state institutions.
The report claimed that ministers questioned the pace of reforms in the governance in different institutions and asked about the accountability of those at the helm.
At this, the PM told them to improve their performance and sought a comprehensive report on the state institutions’ performance that could be presented before the public.
