Lahore: The Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, has asserted that the ongoing developments in the country are part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at positioning the army and PTI at the forefront. Speaking during a media briefing, he emphasized the need for the Punjab government to disclose the identities of 30-40 wanted terrorists. Previously, he had strongly accused certain individuals of manufacturing petrol bombs and orchestrating an attack on his residence, leading to their subsequent arrest.
Imran Khan highlighted that such incidents serve to fortify political parties, as an increase in a party’s vote bank correlates with an upsurge in its popularity. Expressing regret over the departure of Aamir Kayani, he acknowledged the immense pressures faced by party leaders. He also emphasized the importance of an independent commission to investigate the recent events unfolding in the country.
Despite facing relentless pressure, Imran Khan declared his unwavering commitment to genuine freedom, citing that he has endured two assassination attempts without yielding. Referring to the loss of 25 workers in recent days due to direct gunfire and the apprehension of seven and a half thousand individuals, he reiterated the need for an impartial commission to examine these incidents, which he believes would lead to victory.
Imran Khan further stressed the urgency of establishing an independent commission to probe the events that transpired on Rachar Day. He suggested that the surveillance footage from the Corps Commander House, where CCTV cameras have been installed, should be made public. He also drew attention to the presence of people in Mianwali, Corps Commander House, and Peshawar, implying that exposing the recorded footage would be beneficial.
Expressing confidence, Imran Khan contended that no political opponents can effectively compete with PTI in elections. He criticized the caretaker government for failing to fulfill its responsibilities, claiming that the ongoing developments are part of a larger scheme aimed at undermining institutions.
Imran Khan reiterated the party’s desire for fair and transparent elections, highlighting Pakistan’s current economic challenges. Quoting Bloomberg, he pointed out that Pakistan’s economic situation is worse than that of Sri Lanka. He condemned the attack on the Corps Commander House and reiterated his commitment to peaceful protests.
Asserting his position, Imran Khan declared that he is not engaging in negotiations with any party and will only discuss matters related to the election date. He stressed that the Constitution of Pakistan mandates elections within 90 days. Imran Khan accused the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of employing delaying tactics due to their inability to compete on a level playing field.
Furthermore, the Chairman of PTI emphasized the existence of four plans aimed at dissolving the party over the course of a year. He expressed his willingness to face imprisonment, recounting an incident where an arrest warrant was issued for his wife under the pretext of her being a trustee at Sirat Nabi University.
