Pakistan opposition leader Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidari has claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan has lost the majority in the parliament and the nation would soon listen to good news. Addressing a graduates’ conference on Saturday in Peshawar, Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) general secretary said that a total of 34 disgruntled Members of National Assembly (MNAs) from the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had expressed their no-confidence in the Prime Minister, The Frontier Post reported. He said that the Pakistan Tehreek Insaf leadership had lost its moral authority to rule over the country any more. He asked the Prime Minister to step down and announce a fresh general election for face saving, the media outlet reported.
