Despite signs of political progress in Punjab, Prime Minister Imran Khan has refused to accept Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar’s resignation.
According to sources, the chief minister submitted his resignation to the prime minister, who refused to accept it and told him to keep working in the same capacity.
Usman Buzdar was an easy target, according to PM Imran, and no one else has done as much work as Buzdar. He insisted that change is difficult because it is a comprehensive process, and that those vying for the position have a problem with Buzdar.
Buzdar thanked PM Imran for entrusting him with the job and appointing him as Punjab’s Chief Minister. “I am with Imran Khan and the party, and I will always be,” he said.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar had previously stated that the appointment of Aleem Khan as the province’s chief minister would not be acceptable under any circumstances. He told the party’s leadership that he should either name Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi as his successor or keep his job.
Meanwhile, Hasaan Khawar, a spokesman for the Punjab government, stated that Chief Minister Usman Buzdar never spoke against Aleem Khan or proposed Parvez Elahi for the position of Punjab CM.
“Some TV channels have broadcast news stories in this regard that are completely false,” he said, adding that the chief minister had complete faith in Imran Khan’s leadership and that all conspiracies would fail.
Several senior members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had also backed the removal of Usman Buzdar as Punjab Chief Minister. Members of the Jehangir Tareen like-minded had expressed reservations about the performance of the Punjab government the day before, saying Usman Buzdar’s leadership was unacceptable.
Abdul Aleem Khan and Sardar Asif Nakai were welcomed into the group, and the leadership was given decision-making authority. Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan will also approach other party members, and once the group reaches fifty members, a power show will be held.
