Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan talking about the military said that the military is not without its faults and he has a belief that the military was aware of it.
During an interview with Steve Inskeep of NPR, he said that his refusal to accept defeat was a defence of the rule of law and an effort to stop Pakistan from turning into a banana republic.
Imran Khan said that the economy has been in free fall. He said that Pakistan was therefore essentially facing default and the sooner elections will be held the sooner a stable administration will take office resulting in political stability.
PTI Chairman said that unfortunately, parliamentary democracy was still developing in Pakistan. He said that when a scenario arises that is unheard of you should take note (he was referring to 24 members of Parliament who sold themselves).
Imran answering the question of his allies leaving his government said that there were two distinctive things. First, they were allies and in addition, they sold themselves.
Talking about US involvement in his government’s ouster he said that should he always feel resentment toward the US. He said that it was not but about the nation.
Imran further said that unfortunately previous interactions were quite unbalanced and there had actually been a master-slave relationship that has been extremely degrading and humiliating for the people of Pakistan.
In another interview with Joe Wallen of the Telegraph, PTI Chairman said that he believes there will be another attempt on his life unless Pakistan’s Supreme Court takes up the matter. He said that instead of being democratic Pakistan’s two biggest political parties have become mafia-like.
He said that investors were losing faith in this government every month as they remain longer. He predicted that Pakistan’s economy will spiral out of control.
