ISLAMABAD: As Prime Minister Imran Khan fights to save his job, he said on Friday that the “establishment” has given him three options: a no-confidence vote, resignation, or new elections.
PM Imran Khan told a private news station that despite losing the National Assembly majority, he will “not retire from office.”
The Prime Minister said that the Opposition would be unable to lead the government with the individuals who have left him and that early elections would be preferable.
In response to the no-confidence motion, the premier said that he would have “another surprise” when the National Assembly gathers on Sunday to vote on the move.
“A captain never reveals his tactics,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “but I emphasize that this [no-confidence motion] is a massive international plot.”
In response to the reportedly threatening memo, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the “letter” issued by a foreign government stated that bilateral relations cannot progress until he is in office.
Despite the fact that Prime Minister Imran did not mention the nation in this chat, he had an apparent “slip of the tongue” on Sunday during a broadcast speech in which he said that the US had plotted against him.
“Imran Khan is intolerable and should be dismissed,” our ambassador was informed. “I was promised that following Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation, bilateral ties will be examined,” the premier remarked.
The ambassador was informed that Imran Khan’s journey to Russia was a personal choice, according to PM Imran Khan.
The prime minister further claimed that he was facing a “threat to his life” as a result of the menacing message.
The contents of the letter were also discussed during the National Security Committee meeting, according to the premier.
“I highlighted the issue in the appropriate place at the appropriate time,” the premier said.
In August, I had a conspiracy theory
In August 2021, the premier informed the media, and he learned of the danger to his life and the “game” being played against him.
PM Imran added that “planning was done in London according to agencies’ reports,” and that he has “all the records” on who visits which embassy.
“I have all of the reports from politicians, journalists, and news anchors who visit various embassies. “I was aware of the plot because I had all the information,” stated the prime minister.
The premier then went on to say that previous Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz “openly opposed the army,” a dig at the PML-N.
He said that the PML-N supremo began purchasing judges by providing them parcels of land. “Their goal is to gain power and dismantle the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) so that they may get away with their crimes,” Prime Minister Imran said.
He further said that if the PML-N were to gain power, the former premier’s lifelong ban would be lifted and Nawaz would be reinstated.
“I would have offered an NRO to the Opposition on the first day if I wanted to rescue my government,” PM Imran stated.
Taking a go at the opposition parties’ terms in office and their policies on US drone strikes during the war on terror.
“There would be complications if Imran Khan wins the no-confidence motion. “If Imran Khan loses, Pakistan would be forgiven,” Prime Minister Imran Khan stated.
PM Imran Khan says he would never go against the army.
The prime minister also assured media that he would “never go against the Pakistan Army,” saying that he does not want the military to become a source of controversy.
“I would never talk against the army,” Prime Minister Imran Khan declared, adding that Pakistan’s existence required a robust army.
The nation would have been torn into three sections if there had never been a “strong army,” according to the prime minister.
“Our army keeps us secure,” Prime Minister Imran stated.
My reputation will be tarnished: PM Imran warned the media that when the Opposition takes power, they would attempt to discredit his reputation.
“Despite the fact that my wife does not leave the home, a campaign has been launched against her.” There is a danger to my life, and my reputation will be slandered,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said.
PM: Buzdar’s dismissal is the result of a political agreement.
In response to former Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar’s resignation, Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed he chose to dismiss him due to a “political agreement.”
Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhamad Sarwar accepted Chief Minister Usman Buzdar’s resignation earlier today.
Meanwhile, the Punjab government has been disbanded as a result of the resignation being accepted. PM Imran had requested Buzdar to retire after he decided to run for CM with Pervaiz Elahi.
