The leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has been charged by defence minister Khawaja Asif with causing instability during his nearly four years in office and for continuing to be “a tower of hubris.” He asserted that the administration does not want to have him arrested, nevertheless.
After the main head of his party, Fawad Chaudhry, was detained in a sedition case, the former premier launched a new round of criticism at the state institutions.
Speaking on the Wednesday episode of Geo News’ “Aaj Shazeb Khanzada Kay Sath,” he claimed that Imran Khan’s voice had a fearful quality to it today.
Imran Khan is allegedly trying to put pressure on the courts and other institutions, according to the minister. He claimed that the courts and other institutions, which Khan had been insulting, were also those that had helped him get to the top ministry.
According to the PML-N minister, the government would not object if Fawad Chaudhry was granted bail by the court. He did point out that the complainant in this case is the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
Asif discredited the assertions that the government was involved in Fawad’s detention, claiming that, unlike the Imran Khan administration, neither Bashir Memon nor the chairman of the National Accountability Bureau were summoned and requested to file a complaint.
The government would not violate the law in the same way that Khan did while in power, the defence minister emphasised. He did, however, assert that in the event of a danger, they would stand up for the Election Commission members.
