‘Imran Khan is acting’
In a tweet after Imran’s speech, he said, “Imran failed to draw the crowd, failed to undermine the appointments of new chiefs, hence pretending to resign out of frustration.” Bilawal said that Imran’s demand from Rawalpindi is not for independence but for re-election. He questioned how long Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab would be used as political props. PPP General Secretary Farhatullah Babar said that by declaring to leave the Assembly, Imran has accepted that all his plans have failed.
‘Imran completely exposed’
As reported by The News, he tweeted, “The National Assembly is already functioning without PTI MNAs.” He said that Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa can be dissolved only if their chief ministers do not face a no-confidence motion. Although it is a reasonable face-saving strategy. Babar said that Project Taliban and Project Imran Khan may not have been completely destroyed yet, but have been completely exposed. “It is no small achievement…the country has paid a huge price to uncover it, but the price paid is well worth the gains,” he said. Despite the disappointments, there is much to celebrate.
