Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday called the opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif’s speech a ‘job application’ while talking to the press before the budget session.
PM Imran Khan rejected speculations that his government is in any danger owing to the reports of the return of PMLN supremo, Nawaz Sharif. “After every three months, it is said that the government is in trouble. The government is not in any trouble,” he said while heading to the Parliament House after meeting with the federal cabinet.
Premier said he keeps on hearing now and then about the return of Nawaz Sharif similar to last time. He, however, only returned after an agreement.
“The same was the case when he [Nawaz] was in Saudi Arabia. He did not return until an agreement had been reached,” said PM Imran Khan in his brief talk.
