Usman Buzdar resigns

The move of removing Usman Buzdar came after the Opposition had submitted the no-confidence motion against Usman Buzdar earlier today. Shortly after, PTI and PML-Q held an important meeting where Usman Buzdar handed in his resignation.

Furthermore, Farrukh Habib said PM Khan decided to nominate PML-Q’s Pervaiz Elahi as the next Chief Minister of Punjab. A PTI delegation led by Federal Minister for Planning Development Asad Umar reached out to PML-Q leader and Speaker of Punjab Assembly Pervaiz Elahi. The delegation also consisted of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Defense Minister Pervaiz Khattak.

During the meeting, Asad Umar conveyed an important message to the PML-Q leader. As per confirmed reports, PM Imran Khan has agreed to offer the CM Punjab seat to Pervaiz Elahi.

Amid the no-confidence motion against PM Khan, PML-Q had made demands for the Punjab Chief Minister seat. PML-Q reportedly said it will go with the side offering the Punjab CM seat.

However, the PTI-led government had earlier refused to give in to the demands of PML-Q. Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed even accused PML-Q of blackmail. As a result, PML-Q leader and Federal Minister for Water Resources hit out at Sheikh Rasheed.
