Calling Prime Minister Imran Khan ‘politically dead’, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah said on Saturday that now when Imran was no more the country’s prime minister, it was beyond comprehension as to why he was still clinging to the seat, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.   

Addressing a press conference at the CM House in Karachi, he said Imran Khan was going to become the first prime minister in the country’s history who would be removed from the office through a no-confidence motion. 

He went on to say it was his request to President Arif Alvi to ask prime minister to resign since he no longer enjoyed the support of majority of MNAs in the National Assembly (NA). “But sadly, he is not performing his constitutional duty,” the chief minister regretted.  

Murad also called upon the judiciary to take notice that Imran was violating the constitution by not resigning. 

He was of the view that article 94 of the constitution was very clear that the moment the motion was passed, a prime minister ceased to be the prime minister. “But the government is bent upon creating a political crisis in the country by insisting that Imran would remain the prime minister even after the passage of no-trust motion,” he added.

Sindh CM said he felt sad whenever he watched the video of an attack by PTI workers and MNAs on the Sindh House. “Although cases were registered against those who had carried out the attack, but I think terrorism-related sections should have been inserted in them,” he opined.     

Murad reminded that who could forget the attack by PTI workers on PTV building during the party’s months long sit-in in Islamabad in 2014.

The chief minister urged the PTI leaders and ministers to refrain from labelling opposition parties as ‘traitors’.

He counselled the prime minister to start looking for those members of his team who led to his downfall.
