Islamabad (HRNW) Economic Affairs Minister Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has said that the Toshakhana reference against former prime minister Imran Khan has been sent to the National Assembly speaker.
Addressing a press conference on Sunday alongside Railways and Aviation Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, Sadiq confirmed that NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf will announce a decision on the reference in 30 days. “It will then be sent to the Election Commission of Pakistan.”
He termed Imran’s lust for the PM’s chair as the reason for the delay in the no-confidence vote.
Taking a jibe at the ex-premier, the former NA speaker added that it was only because of the lust for power that Imran stooped low and began criticizing the sitting army chief.
The PML-N leader highlighted that the country was suffering due to the consequences of the PTI government’s failure. “Imran is the same person who said that if Modi comes to power then circumstances will improve but we all witnessed what went down in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.”
He went on to allege that Imran damaged Pakistan’s relations with China and Saudi Arabia but the incumbent government is working towards improving them.
