Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar said that the opposition should first decide its future course of action before hurling threats at the government.

“Some of them talk about minus-one formula, while others call for a national government and fresh polls,” he said on Thursday.

They gave the impression that the government would be dissolved before the budget but it sailed through the National Assembly with more votes than the previous year, he said and termed their efforts as a storm in a teacup.

“I am not denying that some of our MNAs and coalition partners have expressed their reservations, however, only Akhtar Mengal refused to move along with the coalition government,” he said adding that they would address their reservations with the passage of time.

Asad Umar said that even the BNP-M leader promised his support to the federal government on matters relating to the betterment of the Balochistan province.

He said that one of their coalition partners, Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), was politically victimised by the Sindh government. “Even PML-Q have reservations but they stand alongside the incumbent government,” the federal minister said.

He said that the opposition has caused a similar ruckus over sugar report when they claimed that the government would never publicise it and take action against those found responsible for it.

Asad Umar said that Imran Khan became the prime minister of the country at a time when people claimed that he could not win a single province. “In a similar way, he will eliminate corruption from the country as promised by him,” he said.
