Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed called on Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Thursday, as pressure to replace the chief executive of the province builds up on the embattled prime minister ahead of the no-trust vote.
During the meeting, they discussed the political situation in the wake of the no-trust move. They criticised the opposition leaders for trying to “create anarchy” in Pakistan.
They said the opposition will wake up to a “big surprise” on the day of the no-trust vote.
“Buzdar is the frontline soldier of Imran Khan,” Rashid said, adding that the opposition had fallen into its own trap.
“With the grace of God, the law and order situation in Pakistan is normal,” he said, adding that no one would be allowed to take the law into their hands.
Buzdar, on the other hand, said that he stood steadfast with the prime minister. “I will live and die with the people,” he claimed.
Buzdar said the government took the necessary steps to ensure the security of the people.
