ISLAMABAD: Amidst reports the opposition is planning to remove him from office, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani called on Prime Minister Imran Khan in the latter’s parliament house chambers on Tuesday, informed sources said.
The sources said that the prime minister during the meeting assured Mr Sanjrani that the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) would support him in the wake of any move from the opposition to bring a no-confidence motion against him.
The meeting took place a day after the Awami National Party (ANP) formally demanded removal of Mr Sanjrani as the first step, if the two major opposition parties were serious about launching the anti-government drive.
ANP leader Zahid Khan had urged the opposition parties to bring a no-confidence motion against Mr Sanjrani. “The masses will not trust Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Maryam Nawaz if the Senate chairman is not removed,” he had remarked.
