During the no-confidence vote against Imran Khan, the party’s leader, former information minister and prominent PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry declared that the PTI was pitted against the military of the nation.
The PTI leader questioned how a “stable government” led by the former premier was overthrown last year during a recent interview on BBC’s renowned programme “Hard Talk,” claiming it is no longer a secret who controls and dictates allied parties.
Fawad criticised the establishment for stifling political actors and reaffirmed the need to open up political space for statesmen. In addition, he used his party’s leader to blame General (r) Qamar Javed Bajwa for Khan’s dismissal.
The outspoken politician then compared the current financial catastrophe to Imran Khan’s swift removal, remembering the times when Pakistan’s growth rate reached 6% despite the Covid pandemic.
When questioned about the massive rise in debt that occurred under the PTI rule, Fawad blamed Zardari and the Sharifs for keeping Pakistan in a never-ending cycle of debt. He continued, “We were compelled to obtain monies in order to repay the current loans incurred by the previous administration.”
The host then remarked that the South Asian nation has dropped 20 points on the corruption perception index as he countered Stephen Sackur’s tirade about corruption (CPI). Imran Khan allegedly provided the nation with one of the most ethical regimes since independence, according to Fawad.
Fawad claimed PTI never seeks conflict with the US and called for friendly relations in response to the party’s chilly relations with Washington. No party wants to engage in conflict with any foreign nation, he said.
He stated that we now anticipate having positive relations with the US and expressed the hope that the superpower will also be open to working with Pakistan’s most well-liked political party.
