ISLAMABAD: “Do not blackmail me and don’t vote for me if you do not want,” Prime Minister Imran Khan responded to Defence Minister Pervez Khattak’s criticism during the parliamentary party meeting.

According to a report of a media outlet, the premier said, “I am fighting the war of the country and have no interest in government.” “If you are not satisfied with me, I will hand over the government to someone else,”

It is pertinent to mention here that the PTI parliamentary meeting was called to take the party’s leadership into confidence regarding the supplementary finance bill.

However, according to reports, the situation turned sour as PM Imran Khan’s most-supporting colleague Khattak showed serious reservations about inflation and the mini-budget.

PM Imran Khan sent Ali Zaidi and Murad Saeed to bring Khattak back, but after coming back Khattak exchanged words with PM Imran Khan.

The defence minister said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province produces electricity and gas but was still facing a shortage.“It is us who got you elected as prime minister,” Khattak said to PM as reported by several media outlets.

‘I’ve 100pc trust in PM’

Answering a question after a separate meeting with the premier, Khattak said: “I have hundred per cent trust in PM Imran Khan; we only discussed some issues in the meeting.”

He further added that he was “shocked” to see reports on media that implied had created some “ruckus” during the meeting.

“I didn’t say anything along the lines of not voting for PM Imran Khan again,” Khattak said while refuting all rumours about having a forward block in the party.
