PTI chairman Imran Khan has once again spoken of fears he might be targeted to prevent his return to power again.
Addressing his supporters via live telecast on Wednesday, Imran said “powerful people” were in efforts to stop him as they feared his imminent return to the government.
Imran alleged that five people, including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and “Dirty Harry” were behind the plot to take his life in November last year.
He said that the same individuals were plotting to ‘eliminate’ him, saying the coalition government knew that they could not face the former ruling party in the polls.
“They have been evading the elections because they know that the people have turned against them due to the current state of the economy.”
On the occasion, the PTI chief reiterated ending his Jail Bharo tehreek, and announced electioneering for Punjab and KP polls from March 4.
