Imran Asks Punjab MPAs To Brace For General Elections
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson and former prime minister Imran Khan has instructed his party's Punjab MPAs to get ready and prepare themselves for general elections within six to eight weeks.

Addressing a meeting of PTI Punjab Assembly Members on Sunday, he said that he was aware of a 'cat and mouse game' being played with his party, but this time he would refrain from naming names.

According to sources, Dr Yasmin Rashid has been given a two-week ultimatum by Imran Khan within which she has been asked to reorganize the party in Punjab.

In a separate incident, Imran Khan on Sunday met newly elected Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi and his son Moonis Elahi  at the Chief Minister’s Office, where they discussed matters of politics and law and order.

They discussed the formation of a provincial cabinet, and several names from the coalition parties, PTI and PML-Q were shortlisted.

According to sources, it was learnt that Raja Basharat could get the portfolio of the law ministry, Murad Raas education, and Yasmin Rashid health department, while Hashim Jawan Bakht’s name was finalised for finance department. Mian Aslam Iqbal, Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed, Chaudhry Zaheeruddin, Hafiz Muhammad Mumtaz, Samiulllah Chaudhry, Sardar Asif, Hafiz Ammar Yasir, Yasir Humayun Raja, and Taimur Khan Bhatti will also get ministerial slots.
