The Prime Minister said that conspiracies were being hatched against him and his government after 2013 general elections.  On the other hand, a meeting of opposition parties was also held where all parties agreed to pressurize the prime minister to set aside axcept Qaumi Watan Party and Awami National Party. Both parties opposed resignation of PM before SC final judgment.
