ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said that former prime minister Imran Khan had planned to abolish the 1973 Constitution.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, he said that the drama of the electronic voting machine (EVM) was staged to bring an autocratic government having a two-thirds majority.

The minister said that the coalition government had performed the responsibility of the state by putting the politics at stake.

APP adds:

Adviser to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan, Qamar Zaman Kaira announced to extend PPP’s unconditional support for Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) in by-elections of the Punjab Assembly.

He said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leadership, after thorough analysis and discussions within the party, concluded that the PML-N as their ally could end the evil spread by the previous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government. “We want to end the scourge of PTI government’s vicious propaganda that created unwanted polarisation in the society.”

Kaira said that the people completely rejected the policies of the PTI and entrusted full confidence in the PPP leadership. Criticising the PTI’s previous policies, the Adviser said the PPP and the coalition government did not believe in benefiting through subsidies to elite like PTI government; however, it encouraged to introduce targeted subsidies only for the lowest income class.
