After almost a delay of 45-minutes from the scheduled time, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan finally addressed the nation. Pakistan’s parliament on Thursday adjourned a debate on the political survival of PM after the opposition had called for a no-confidence vote on the embattled premier. Putting an end to the speculations that a recorded version of speech would be aired, the PM started his speech by saying that, it was live telecast.
