The ruling coalition Wednesday termed PTI Chairman Imran Khan a “traitor”, warned him against attacking Islamabad, and asked the governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to abstain from becoming a “tool” in paving the way for chaos in the country.
During a meeting of the coalition rulers at the Prime Minister’s House — chaired by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif — a discussion was held regarding the country’s political and economic conditions, including the situation on the interior and external front, a statement issued in this regard said.
During the meeting, the government expressed condolence over the deaths that occurred in the wake of the devastating floods and recited Fatiha for the departed souls. In addition, participants of the meeting said they were satisfied with the relief and rescue work being carried out for the flood victims in the country.
Participants of the meeting appreciated PM Shehbaz’s leadership skills and also commended the role of the federal and provincial governments in mitigating the effects of the devastating floods. They also lauded the efforts of the armed forces in helping the flood-hit people.
Shedding a light on the political milieu of the country, the coalition partners decided that “no one would be allowed to attack Islamabad by crossing the limits of the Constitution and law.”
