ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed on Sunday that “foreign influences” are behind efforts to destabilize his administration, and that “some of our own individuals” are being utilized in the process.
The premier was addressing at the Parade Ground in Islamabad at one of his party’s “largest” rallies in its history, as the Opposition prepares to remove him from power via a no-confidence resolution.
PM Imran Khan’s address was ‘unsurprising.’
The premier stated he had “written proof” that “money has been coming in from overseas,” and that “some of our individuals are being utilized to overturn the government,” while flashing a letter in front of the public.
“Plotting and planning were carried out for months to destabilize the economy of Pakistan from the outside,” he claimed.
“We know who’s behind it,” the prime minister stated, adding that “a lot of things will be presented to the people but at the correct moment.”
“The people of Pakistan want to know who the guy in London [Nawaz] meets, as well as who is training the leaders in Pakistan.”
He said that the government had “proof” of foreign involvement in Pakistan’s affairs, but declined to provide any specifics, stating that he “is not at liberty to give further facts” because he “cares for the security and interest of the nation.”
He claimed the nation has fallen behind in all fields since the two political dynasties came to power, referring to the PPP and PML-N.
“I’ve been fighting them for the past 25 years, and I’ve never fought for personal interests for so long,” he remarked.
The PM claimed a few days ago that he will “surprise” the Opposition a day before the no-confidence vote, but that he has yet to place his cards on the table.
