ISLAMABAD: Fifteen members of the Punjab Assembly, belonging to the opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, met Prime Minister Imran Khan at his Banigala residence on Saturday and expressed their “full confidence” in the PM and Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

While the PML-N rejected reports of any such meeting, PM’s special assistant Naeem-ul-Haque confirmed the development in a late-evening Twitter posting, saying: “The hopes of PMLN MPAs from Punjab continue to get shattered with their party as was obvious in their today’s meeting with the PM.”

He confirmed that 15 MPAs of the PML-N met the PM at Banigala for one and a half hours. “CM Punjab had brought them over. They expressed full confidence in PM and the CM.” However, Mr Haque did not mention the names of any of the 15 PML-N MPA.

PML-N’s information secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb rejected reports of a meeting between Mr Khan and some lawmakers from her party, claiming that it was a “stunt that had been pulled by the PTI to divert people’s attention away from the budget, which had been prepared by the International Monetary Fund”.

“Not a single MPA belonging to the PML-N is included in the names reported by the media. We have been waiting for the names of the PML-N MPAs so that we may offer comments on the matter,” she remarked.

Earlier, the prime minister, while chairing a meeting about the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme, described it as the most important project that was aimed to meet housing needs in the country.

“It will not only provide residential facilities to the people but will also play an important role in strengthening the economy,” he said.

The government would facilitate both local and foreign businessmen who wanted to invest in the scheme, he said.

Federal Minister for Housing and Works Tariq Bashir Cheema, federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfiqar Bukhari were among those who attended the meeting.
