Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that his opponents are planning to get rid of him by filing a treason case.
Imran Khan made the revelations during his address to a huge public gathering in the Buner district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Friday.
“They [opponents] are talking about the treason trial against Imran Khan. They want to get rid of me through a treason case. Will Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif file a treason case against me – the people who are owning assets abroad? I will never surrender before any superpower like this imported government.”
The PTI chairman said that being apolitical is a good thing but national security is the most important. “I had warned them about a major economic dent if the conspiracy succeeds against my government.”
“I have always given the examples of the Soviet Union and the United States (US) having the strongest military powers. The Soviet Union had fallen just after the economic collapse.”
He alleged that Shehbaz Sharif-led government is preparing to rig the upcoming elections and fixing the match with the nexus of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
“They are filing fake cases to spread fear among the nationals with the nexus of police forces for bulldozing the opposition. I am sure that they will not win the elections as the nation will always remember them as traitors and thieves. I want to give a message to the nation that we have to fight for real independence.”
Imran said that India, Israel and the US had hatched a conspiracy to weaken Pakistan. Celebratory moments were witnessed in Indian electronic media and newspapers after the ouster of the PTI government in Pakistan.
He said that the Sharif family has strong ties with the business community of India. “[Indian Prime Minister] Narendra Modi is the person who is involved in atrocities against Muslims but he had been invited by Nawaz Sharif at a wedding ceremony.”
The former prime minister criticised that Nawaz Sharif had never talked about Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav just to appease India.
Imran said that the PTI government had borne the pressure of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and reduced petrol price up to Rs10 per litre.
The PTI government had protected the nation from inflation but the ‘US slaves in the shape of the current rulers’ hurled petrol bomb at the nationals. He censured the incumbent government for hiking the petrol and diesel prices up to Rs60 in just one week.
The former prime minister also expressed suspicions that the current rulers are going to dissolve their corruption cases by shutting down the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He asked Buner people to be prepared for his call to fight for real independence in the country.
