After PM secures trust vote, allies speak of their concerns
After the incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan won the vote of confidence, parliamentarians of the government-allied parties expressed their concerns in the National Assembly.
The leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, congratulated the PM and said: “We have given you our trust now its your turn to give the trust back to the parliament… and to the nation.”
Siddiqui also discussed his aim of a parliament where he believed farmers are represented by farmers not feudal lords and labourers are represented by labourers not capitalists.
“If my 100 workers are missing, shall I not ask the prime minister?…. there are no such practices in a civilised, democratic and Islamic society,” he added.
The MQM convener also shared his concerns about Karachi and mentioned the negligence faced by the largest city at the hands of authorities.
An MNA of Grand Democratic Alliance, Fahmida Mirza also spoke from the assembly’s floor and reminded PM Khan that the government’s coalition included parties of every ethnicity, and of every province.
She also complained about irregularities in Senate election and recalled how GDA’s Senate candidate was betrayed by fellow PTI MPAs in Sindh Assembly.
However, both the allies hoped for improvements as they wished the PM a better future as he won the vote of confidence in today’s National Assembly session with simple majority.
