PM is there but…
When the interim government was formed under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru in undivided India, Nehru became the PM and in this government Liaquat Ali Khan became the Finance Minister of the country. However, after the Indo-Pak partition, Liaquat Ali Khan became the first Prime Minister of Pakistan. Liaquat kept knocking in the eyes of many people and his chair kept staggering. Some people did not want him to be the PM. Muhammad Ali Jinnah was also later disillusioned with him.
However, as long as Jinnah remained, Liaquat’s chair did not come under fire. Jinnah died in 1948.
