Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that his party currently has no relationship with the new military leadership.
The former prime minister claimed that the general elections would be held in April 2023 while rejecting any connections to army leader General Syed Asim Munir.
Blaming former army chief Gen (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa for “helping the government in ruling the country”, the PTI chief predicted that the government will now be “forced to hold general elections this April”.
“When they came into power, they ended their corruption cases worth Rs1,100 billion,” he said.
The former premier blamed the present government for the country’s economic crisis and highlighted that the only way to resolve these issues is through free and fair elections. He also added that Pakistan’s economic conditions have never been this terrible.
“The current government led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has come into power through horse trading,” claimed the PTI chief.
The PTI chief added that the coalition rulers have kept themselves above the law and ended the corruption cases that they were booked in years back. “Shehbaz Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari, and Maryam Nawaz all of their cases have been forgiven.”
He said that in a bid to move towards free and fair elections, his party “sacrificed” two assemblies Khyber Pakhtunkwa and Punjab. “Now this government will be forced into holding elections in April.”
