As beleaguered Prime Minister Imran Khan has stated that he will not give in and fight till the last ball, the PTI one again has made a plan to scuttle voting on the no-confidence motion slated to be started before noon today (Saturday), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Sources informed that the PTI has chalked out a strategy to delay voting on the no-trust resolution. As per the plan, the PTI ministers including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Shireen Mazari and others will give long speeches to delay the crucial vote that might send government packing. 

It is also feared that a scuffle will break out in the lower house on the matter of lettergate, sources said adding that one group of the treasury members would raise slogans in protest against the regime change through what they call ‘foreign plot’.
