Defeat in first phase of KP local govt elections negatively affected the party: PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday claimed that his government will complete its constitutional term of five years with the help of allies.
PM Imran Khan, in an interview with a private TV channel, said that government does not face any threat from political parties that have been marred by corruption allegations. If opposition wants, it should table a no confidence motion against me, he added.
The premier termed his relations with military leadership exemplary. While responding to a question about extension of Army Chief, Imran Khan said that he has not thought about it as November is still far and year 2022 has just started.
Talking about struggles of his government, Imran Khan said that the biggest failure is delay in accountability as despite concrete evidence, the accused are out of jails. He said that the NAB takes cases before the courts but no prosecution is done there. There are proofs against Shehbaz Sharif and can anyone say that PML-N President was not involved in corruption, he wondered. He said that FIA is carrying out investigations against Shehbaz Sharif and a lot of proofs have surfaced and Shehbaz Sharif’s acquittal is difficult in this case.
The premier acknowledged that defeat in first phase of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa local government elections negatively affected the party and termed next three months very important as government has to overcome rising inflation in the country.
About Punjab, Imran Khan said that he is completely satisfied with the performance of the provincial government. PM Imran Khan said that CM Punjab Sardar Usman Ahmed Khan Buzdar has done many good deeds but he has failed to get projection of these works and he is not able to properly project his work in front of media. PM Imran Khan hoped that PTI will emerge as strong party in Punjab local government elections.
