PM could dissolve assemblies: Asad Umer

Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umer has claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan could dissolve assemblies at any time, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel.

The statement came following the uncertain political situation and poor performance of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government on the economic and administrative level and strong criticism from the opposition, especially when it has lost the fresh election on a Karachi seat, that was won by a  federal minister and close aide to the PM Faisal Vawda.

Talking to a private channel on Friday, Asad Umar said that Prime Minister Imran Khan would not bother to curtail his period in the PM office at any stage and time and whenever he would think better, he would dissolve the assemblies.

On some queries, Asad Umar said that he had no doubt about the PM’s state of mind as he could dissolve assemblies and he can do such thing whenever he wants even just six months, one year or two years before completion of his government’s parliamentary tenure.

He said PM Khan has not come in the power for just the sake of power and would not hesitate in dissolving the assemblies if he would not be given free-hand to implement his plans.

He said PM Khan would prefer to go to people to get fresh mandate by telling them about the hurdles he is facing to govern the country.

It is pertinent to mention here that during the Gilgit visit on Friday, Prime Minister Imran Khan accepted his mistakes in the government.
