PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari wasted no time while taking the floor and warned the Speaker that he would violate Constitution and commit contempt of court if he did not hold voting on the no-confidence motion, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Speaking in the National Assembly on Saturday, Bilawal roared at the treasury benches, telling them that Niazi was violating the Constitution and the court's order. "You cannot take up anything else except for what is on the agenda. Not only you, the speaker also did the same," Bilawal told the noisy government lawmakers.
Bilawal maintained that this was not the first time the court had set aside the speaker's ruling.
Turning his guns on Prime Minister Imran Khan, a belligerent Bilawal said that the premier was breaking the law on his way out of office. "If you want to be involved in it, then it's your choice. But I had warned the prime minister to stay away from the man speaking before me," he said, referring to Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
The PPP chairman alleged that Qureshi was responsible for Imran Khan's troubles, again calling for a vote to be held on the no-confidence motion. "If you don't come to today's agenda, then you should know that the opposition will not leave [...] we will snatch our constitutional rights from you."
The PPP chairman said that the government had lost its majority in the assembly and then they could see the ‘conspiracy letter’. "We can debate on the foreign conspiracy for 100 days but first hold the vote," he added.
Bilawal alleged that the government had told several lies in this whole saga. The supposed conversation took place on March 7 and the no-confidence was presented on March 8, he said, adding "But there is a time difference between Pakistan and America which means that the no-trust move was presented as the conversation was underway."
