Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan will visit Karachi today to meet its Sindh ally, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).
It is also being reported that PM Khan will attend a ceremony of the government’s Ehsaas Programme at National Stadium and meet PTI’s Sindh MPAs at Governor House.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had also contacted Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) for scheduling a meeting of the party president with the premier.
However, the president of the PML-F, Pir Pagara, would not be able to meet the premier due to his illness and other pre-planned engagements in his hometown.
On Tuesday, PM Khan spent a rather busy day in the capital.
Soon after the Opposition submitted its no-confidence motion in the National Assembly Secretariat, the PM met a number of digital journalists and stated confidently he was going nowhere.
PM Khan told digital journalists he was confident his old friend, Jahangir Tareen, would never join the Opposition’s camp. “I know he will never join these thieves.”
He also said there were “multiple foreign hands” backing the Opposition, adding that he was completely prepared to handle the political situation. “A captain doesn’t reveal his strategy all at once.”
The premier said those who did not want an independent foreign policy were supporting the Opposition. He reiterated that the Pakistan Army would never support “these thieves” [Opposition leaders]. “The Opposition does not have the support of the people so they say the establishment is with us.”
He remarked: “What will happen if the no-trust move does not succeed? A mind game is being played, and I am the master of mind games.”
