State institutions helped PM Khan win vote of confidence: Abbasi

Lahore (HRNW) PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Tuesday that the state institutions helped Prime Minister Imran Khan win the vote of confidence from the National Assembly last week.

“The vote of confidence that PM took, he didn’t take it but the country’s institutions got him that,” Abbasi told reporters in Islamabad.

PM Khan took the vote of confidence after his party’s candidate for the Senate’s Islamabad’s seat lost the election to PDM’s Yousaf Raza Gillani.

Maryam Nawaz, the leader of Abbasi’s party, claimed two days ago that PTI MNAs were compelled to give their vote to PM Khan.

“It has come to our knowledge that the two [PTI] MNAs who didn’t agree to vote for him [PM Khan] till the eleventh hour, they were taken to a compound of an institution in Golrah,” Maryam said on March 7.

“They were locked in a container for four hours and compelled to give vote to PM Khan.”

Abbasi repeated Maryam’s claims, saying that “all the limits were crossed” to help PM Khan win the vote of confidence.
