In the face of 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 offered his resignation to the prime minister, but he was told to keep working in the same capacity.
Usman Buzdar, according to Prime Minister Imran, is an easy target because no one else has done as much work as him. He insisted that change is difficult because it is a multi-step process, and that those vying for the position have an issue with Buzdar.
Buzdar thanked Prime Minister Imran for entrusting him with the role of Chief Minister of Punjab. He stated, “I am, and will always be, with Imran Khan and the party.”
Usman Buzdar, the province’s chief minister, had previously stated that the appointment of Aleem Khan as the province’s chief minister was unacceptable under any circumstances. He told the party’s leadership that either Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi should be named as his successor or that he should be allowed to stay on.
Meanwhile, Hasaan Khawar, a spokesman for the Punjab government, stated that Chief Minister Usman Buzdar never spoke against Aleem Khan or suggested Parvez Elahi for the position of Punjab Chief Minister.
“Some TV channels have broadcast news stories in this regard that are completely false,” he said, adding that the chief minister was confident in Imran Khan’s leadership and that all conspiracies would fail.
Several senior leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) also backed the removal of Usman Buzdar as Punjab Chief Minister. Members of the Jehangir Tareen had expressed reservations about the performance of the Punjab government the day before, and said Usman Buzdar’s leadership was unacceptable.
Abdul Aleem Khan and Sardar Asif Nakai were welcomed into the group, and the leadership was given control of the decision-making process. After the group reaches fifty members, Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan will approach other party members and stage a power show.
