no-trust, resignation or fresh election’


Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistan’s strong ‘establishment’ gave him three options to end the ongoing political turmoil in the country; face no-trust vote in parliament, hold fresh elections or step down.

This he revealed in an interview with a local TV channel on Friday.

“I said early election is the best option… I could never think of resigning… and for no-trust motion I believe that I will fight till the last minute,” the premier remarked.

Prime Minister Imran also claimed that he knew that a “foreign conspiracy” was being hatched in London to topple his government since August last year.

“This game started in August [last year]… I received reports about people frequently visiting London from here [Pakistan]… and [also received] reports from agencies,” said the premier in an interview with a local TV channel on Friday.

The premier alleged that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, who has been living in London since 2019 for medical treatment, was plotting against his government.

“He [Nawaz] was frequently holding meetings with individuals who are against military and held last meeting with Hussain Haqqani on March 3,” Imran Khan claimed.

‘Talk of de-notifying army chief was opposition’s propaganda’

While responding to a question, PM Imran rubbished the rumours that he was mulling to de-notify army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and added that it was a “propaganda spread by PML-N”.

“I can never think of doing anything which is detrimental to our armed forces… our country needs a strong military.”

PM Imran said he will never speak against the country’s military. “Despite the issues, I will never discuss them publicly because Pakistan needs a strong army and we should not do anything which causes harms to [military],” he remarked.
