Prime Minister Imran Khan announced on Wednesday that after winning the trust of the lower house, he would turn his gun towards former president Asif Ali Zardari.
Addressing charged PTI workers at the Governor House in Karachi, PM Imran claimed that the motion is the “political death” of the opposition.
“I was telling my team that they (opposition) have done what I was praying for,” said PM Imran told the party workers during his day-long visit to Karachi — which was aimed at gaining assurance from MQM-P for their support amid the no-trust motion.
“No-confidence motion is their political death,” the premier told his workers about the opposition.
He said that he was waiting for the “gang of robbers” as they were claiming after “every two months” that the government would be leaving.
“I was thinking somehow their necks come in my hand,” said PM Imran, adding that he wanted the opposition to submit the motion.
The premier claimed that the opposition has become “trapped” after submitting the no-confidence motion. He said that he has planned his moves for the future and will not stop once he “wins” the backing of the National Assembly.
“My hands were tied, so far. The shackles that were on my hand will be broken. My first target will be Asif Ali Zardari on whom my gun has been pointing at for a long time,” said PM Imran.
While attacking Zardari, the PM claimed that the PPP co-chairperson commits injustice, steals and takes a commission on everything.
“Asif Zardari your time has finished,” said PM Imran. He alleged that the former president roams around with “buckets of money” and has kept Rs200 million to buy the PTI MPAs.
He alleged that when one of the PTI MNA’s informed him that he was offered Rs200 million he told the lawmaker to take the money and open a panahgah or orphanage with it.
Calling Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif a “boot polisher,” PM Imran claimed that he had joined hands with the PPP as he knows that his time is up.
“Your time is also here. You know you will be in jail after three months. We will decrease the price of electricity after getting money back from your family,” said PM Imran.
The premier said that Zardari, Shahbaz, and PDM chief Fazal-ur-Rehman have joined hands with each other not to save the country but to save themselves from him.
He said that the government, after winning the no-confidence motion, would take the three opposition bigwigs — Zardari, Shehbaz, and Fazal — to “Pakistani jails where they should have been for a long time”.
