In the wake of the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan being passed, celebrities have been coming out in support of him. However, the premier’s former wife and journalist Reham Khan recently mocked the support celebrities have shown for PM Khan.
Taking to Twitter, Reham shared, “All these actors giving endorsements to the Kupitaan had better [gotten] heavy investments for their film projects!”
Having none of it, actor Muneeb Butt hit back at Reham. “The way you got “heavy investments” for Janaan!” he wrote. “Apney set ka furniture tak apney IK ka name use karkey logun se free me liya tha [You received your furniture set free of cost after using Imran Khan’s name], so don’t school us and stop being a graceless ex!”
Previously, Saba Qamar, Humayun Saeed, Rohail Hyatt, Shaan Shahid, and Samina Peerzada, among several others, joined the rest of Twitter to back the skipper.
Saba Qamar reminded everyone, “This is not about one person, it is about Pakistan.” She went on to hope, “May Allah (SWT) bless our Prime Minister Imran Khan with success. Ameen.”
Humayun Saeed revealed how he has been a fan of Imran Khan since the latter was a sportsman and is still an admirer of his leadership. “I wish and pray that he completes his tenure. May Allah bless him,” the Jawani Phir Nahi Ani actor wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Shaan Shahid, who has made it abundantly clear numerous times that he stands with the skipper, tweeted, “I stand with Imran Khan. Pakistan has spoken they want only one leader to lead them to a brighter future. They have shown solidarity with Imran Khan. You can keep your parliament but you can never take away our leader.”
No-confidence motion against PM Khan
The opposition legislators have launched a no-confidence motion against PM Khan in parliament, hoping to remove his government amid accusations he has mismanaged the nation’s economy.
The house will begin a debate on the motion on Thursday and a vote is to be held within seven days. Shehbaz Sharif, the opposition leader in the National Assembly or lower house of the parliament, proposed the no-confidence motion against the premier on Monday.
PM Khan, 69, a former captain of Pakistan’s national cricket team, came into power in the 2018 elections, securing 176 votes. He needs 172 votes to remain in power.
But nearly 20 defections in Khan’s ruling party and cracks in his coalition partners have made him short of the 172 votes, a simple majority, needed to hold on to power.
