CHAKWAL: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that opposition parties gathered on the platform of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) were speaking the language of Pakistan’s enemies.
Addressing a ceremony after laying the foundation stone of different projects including the university in Chakwal’s Balkassar, 500-bed hospital, law college, and Ring Road, he said those who are claiming to be “champions of the democracy” are asking to overthrow the elected government.
He said the first time in the history of the country, the opposition is directly accusing the Pakistan Army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of managing general elections of 2018.
“The opposition without providing proofs targeted Pakistan Army of bringing ‘selected’ government.”
PM Imran Khan said those who have ruled the country in the past 30 years, looted resources of the homeland and both the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) accused eachother of corruption in the past and registered graft cases against each other.
Institutions are being pressurised to get NRO, Khan said, adding that it would be tantamount to treason if any concession is given to the opposition.
“Gen Musharraf gave an NRO two these two [Nawaz and Zardari] and our loans multiplied by four times in the span of 10 years.”
The PM said the country’s poor economic condition was due to the repayment of loans borrowed in the past. “How can we spend on the poor when we are seized with repaying loans to our creditors?” he questioned.
The premier said that India is trying to create chaos in Pakistan and destabiliae it, but the DisInfo Lab’s report has exposed New Delhi’s nefarious designs against Pakistan.
He stated that it was also discovered that the fake sites unearthed in the investigation “were also promoting” the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), an alliance of 11 political parties. He said that “there are many journalists also who promote them and were part of the disinformation campaign.”
Look at the children of these leaders that are carrying out rallies for an NRO,” in an apparent reference to Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Maryam Nawaz, the prime minister said that if someone were to ask them what their job experience is, what would they say?
“They will say our fathers are the most corrupt people in Pakistan. And they have cases lined up against them. And they are being convicted by the courts. This is our qualification.”
He said the two “have not worked an hour in their life”.
He added that the Modi government is carrying out the worst human rights violations in the Indian occupied Kashmir, the world should take notice of the situation.
