Pakistan Politics: Pakistan’s deposed Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to rule for 15 years by disqualifying the entire opposition leadership by the end of this year as part of a ‘fascist plan’. According to a news report in the media on Sunday, a senior minister of PML-N has made this claim.
Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir said in a TV program on Saturday that he was already aware that Imran Khan was the president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the entire opposition including current Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Ahsan Iqbal. wanted to eliminate the leadership.
‘Khan had fascist plans to attack this country’
According to a media report, the minister strengthened his claim by saying that the former prime minister had also announced that 100 judges would be hired to expedite cases against his political opponents. When asked why his party was ready to take the rule of the country in its hands for only one and a half years? To this, he said, “The alliance has been formed only because Khan had fascist plans to attack this country.”
Responding to Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir’s claim, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and former minister Ali Haider Zaidi said, “Khurram Dastgir has openly admitted that there is a need to save the opposition from corruption cases. The constitutionally elected government of Imran Khan was removed through a conspiracy. It is unfortunate that these thugs are now destroying the economy.
Significantly, Imran Khan was removed from the post of PM on 9 April after he was defeated in the no-confidence vote. After this, Imran Khan directly accused the US President Joe Biden administration of conspiring to oust his government from power.
