LAHORE (Dunya News) – Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Monday ruled out possibility of governor’s rule amid ongoing Punjab Assembly session.

Speaking to the Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA) members, Elahi while reiterating his call to dissolve the Punjab Assembly on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s call, said that we have the support of 191 lawmakers in the Lower House, adding that there is no possibility of the governor’s rule during the ongoing Assembly session.

The Punjab CM added that they will take all steps within the scope of the constitution and law, adding that the incumbent rulers have damaged the country’s economy.

Earlier, in a statement, Elahi said that after the former premier’s announcement at the Rawalpindi public gathering, Khan’s strategy has entered a decisive round, adding that the massive crowd proved Imran Khan’s popularity.

The Punjab CM said that he would dissolve the Punjab Assembly within a minute on Imran Khan’s call, adding that the fake alliance of the PDM would collapse after the PTI chief’s recent announcement.

Earlier, former federal minister Moonis Elahi clarified the situation regarding the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly, stating that the provincial assembly will be dissolved at the direction of former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

To speak on the matter of dissolving the Punjab Assembly, Moonis Elahi shared a post on his official Twitter account and said, "We bagged success with the blessing of Allah Almighty on July 27, when Pervaiz Elahi was elected as the Punjab Chief Minister. Since then, we are running the provincial government – on bonus – in order to keep our promises."

"We would break the Punjab Assembly when Imran Khan asks us to," Moonis said, referring to the PTI chief as "the PM."
