After the abrupt dissolution of the National Assembly, Punjab Assembly is also likely to be dissolved soon, insiders revealed on Monday.

According to insiders, newly appointed Punjab Governor Omar Sarfaraz Cheema may ask former chief minister Usman Buzdar to take charge as caretaker.

Meanwhile, Governor Cheema has been summoned to Islamabad where he will meet Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday (today).

Insiders said that the premier would guide Cheema over the strategy to be applied next amid the ongoing political turmoil.

Meanwhile, PM Imran also summoned Buzdar and PTI Senator Mehmoodur Rasheed to the federal capital. They will brief PM Imran on the number game in the Punjab Assembly.

In the meeting, they will discuss options to deal with the political crisis in Punjab, while the two leaders will brief the prime minister over the numbers game in Punjab.

It may be recalled that voting for the election of a new chief minister was to be held on Sunday but Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari had adjourned the session till April 6 on the pretext of ruckus inside the house.

President Dr Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan as the PTI government evaded the no-confidence motion against the premier.
