After the violence in Pakistan on May 9, the government and the army together are tightening the noose on PTI and one by one the party leader is distancing himself from Imran. In the meeting, he said that the situation is going to change soon. He said, ‘I will give a big surprise in the coming days.’ Imran claimed that some leaders are leaving the party under compulsion while some have been exposed.
‘There was a plot to kill me’
Describing the youth as his “party’s biggest asset”, Imran said party tickets are their right and asserted that PTI will win the next general election despite the resignations of its leaders. The PTI chief claimed that there was a conspiracy to “arrest, disqualify and even kill” him. The Shahbaz government alleges that Imran had given instructions for the violence on 9 May.
Imran said – no quarrel with the army
Imran denied these allegations and said that he had never given instructions for violence and sabotage. He said that I have no quarrel with the army and ‘this army is mine’. Imran Ismail, a close aide of Imran Khan and former governor of Sindh province, resigned from PTI on Saturday. He said, ‘I am resigning from all posts of PTI. Khan Sahab, I am saying goodbye to you and PTI.
