Former prime minister Imran Khan on Thursday urged “neutrals” — a thinly-veiled reference to the establishment — to review their decisions.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman said political and economic stability in the country would only come through fair elections. He was addressing a seminar in Islamabad. Criticising the coalition government, the PTI chief said that he preferred dying over accepting the “imported” government.
Last month, the PTI chief asked the state institutions as to why they allowed “criminals” to come into power by removing his government in April this year. Addressing a rally in Islamabad, Imran termed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leaders ‘corrupt.’
He said that people will not accept the “foreign conspiracy” and “these thieves” in power, adding that people have taken to the streets and they are sending the message through protests to the “establishment” that there is still time to save this country from criminals.
“We will never accept this imported government […] no matter what tactics they employ, people will never accept them,” he further said.
