Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has cast doubt on the ‘neutrality’ of establishment with regard to the forthcoming vote of confidence in Punjab Assembly.
While talking to journalists on Friday, the ex-premier accused establishment of making attempts to bring the PPP into power in the province.
“The establishment is involved in political engineering [in Punjab], Imran said during the informal talk.
He claimed that PTI members were being contacted. “Three people have confirmed being contacted.”
Imran reiterated that Gen (retd) Bajwa didn’t want accountability of the former rulers and was unsure about eradicating corruption.
“One man thought of Shehbaz Sharif as some sort of a genius; see what that has done to the country.”
The crucial session of the provincial assembly is convened on January 9 and it would decide the fate of the Punjab chief minister.
On Jan 3, PTI chairman said Gen (retd) Bajwa was an “altogether different man” after getting an extension to his term.
He had also reiterated making a ‘mistake’ by granting the ex-general extension, saying the former COAS had started to talk of ‘neutrality’ afterwards.
Imran had quoted the former general as saying during his last meeting with him, “We have your files, we have your audios and videos, we know you have been a playboy.”
“I replied that I never claimed to be an angel, I had been a playboy but Allah Almighty has given me an opportunity to repent over my sins.”
He had also said Gen (retd) Bajwa, ‘being a har fan mola’ (jack of all trades), wanted to put accountability aside to focus on the economy instead.
