Earlier in the day, Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi assured former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan of ‘dissolving’ the Punjab Assembly without any delay.
According to details, Punjab CM Pervaiz Elahi called on the former premier at his residence in Lahore’s Zaman Park. Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) leaders Moonis Elahi and Hussain Elahi were also present.
During the meeting, matters pertaining to political and administrative were discussed. The rules of procedure of the Punjab Assembly were also reviewed in the meeting. The participants also expressed their determination to fight ‘every unconstitutional tactic’ of the opposition.
Speaking on the occasion, Imran Khan noted that he has summoned a meeting of Punjab Parliamentary Party tomorrow. “A final consultation on the future of Punjab Assembly will be held in the meeting,” he added. Khan also lambasted the incumbent government for ‘destroying’ the country’s economy.
