Former prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday said that his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party will dissolve both Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab assemblies on Friday, December 23.
Imran, while addressing the rally via video link, said that former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa was behind the conspiracy to oust his government through the no-confidence motion.
“Question is who was responsible? One man was responsible and his name is Gen Bajwa. I did not use to take his name because he was army chief. We did not want army to be badmouthed. We want a strong army,” he said.
Imran Khan said that Gen Bajwa was behind the conspiracy. “They [establishment] thought Dar and Shehbaz were some kind of geniuses that they will run government better than us,” he added.
After my government fell, Imran continued, the masses supported PTI. “Our popularity increased even more after the no-confidence motion. Despite all efforts, they lost by-elections.”
Earlier in the day, the former premier held a consultative meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, K-P Chief Minister Mahmood Khan and other senior party leaders.
