A day after the PTI chief announced his intent to pull out from the legislative assemblies, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman linked Imran Khan with a “conspiracy” against the country.
Addressing a conference in Upper Kohistan, Fazl, who also heads the ruling alliance, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), said that a “fake government” was imposed on the country through rigging in 2018.
Cases were made against politicians by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), he added.
“Imran says there was a conspiracy; there was no conspiracy, he was taken out by force,” he exclaimed, adding that “we took Imran Khan by the collar and removed him from power”.
He accused Imran of conspiring to divide the armed forces.
Highlighting the former prime minister’s claims of marching to Islamabad, he challenged him to come to the federal capital. “After being shot he ran away and is installing bulletproof glasses in his home,” he claimed.
The JUI-F chief said that there were three suicide attacks on him, but “even today I am standing in front of the people”.
He claimed that the PTI chief has now gone into a closed street from where there is no way out. “Imran Khan threatens to resign; he had resigned before but came back,” he said.
He further said that it was necessary to remove the PTI government to improve the country’s economy. “Some people are trying to spread political chaos, which has led to economic instability,” he added.
