LAHORE: Governor Ch Muhammad Sarwar on Wednesday said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation and new general elections are ‘no-go areas’ and stated that neither Prime Minister Imran Khan will resign nor opposition’s dream of new general elections before 2023 will come true.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that opposition’s protest would soon be concluded as the government would ensure all possible arrangements for resolution of justified demands of the opposition, adding the government did not want any confrontation with opposition, whereas Maulana Fazalur Rehman was a seasoned politician so that he would also have same approach. Ch Sarwar said that opposition has no reason for demanding Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation and early general elections as the people of the country had given a mandate to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for five years, adding that the government made it clear that no negotiations could take place on such demands.

He said that government’s dialogue committee was honestly doing its work therefore soon positive results of dialogue would come out, adding that it was responsibility of the opposition to abide by the agreement signed between government and the opposition.
