Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson Imran Khan has said that he has no disagreements with the ‘neutrals’ – in an apparent reference to the military leadership.
“Weakening the ‘neutrals’ means strengthening the enemy and only the country will suffer during this fight,” Imran said while speaking to senior journalists today.
“If I would speak to the neutrals there would be only one stance – free and fair elections.”
He said that he does not have any fear of arrest as he has not crossed any red line, adding that if the government wants to arrest him, they can do so.
Talking about the upcoming by-polls in Punjab, the former premier said that free and fair elections are the only solution to pull the country out of the crisis, adding that when a pro-people government will be formed only then will the economy flourish.
He warned that if the by-elections are rigged, then it may harm the country. “What do I have to do? I can wait but it is the country that will suffer,” he maintained.
Criticising the government, he said that nobody is ready to speak to the leaders of the “imported government”, asserting that he will never join hands with the “thieves” even if he has to sit on the opposition benches.
