Ex-prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has rubbished the reports of approaching Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari for an “alleged patch-up” prior to the non-confidence vote.
Addressing digital media representatives in Peshawar, the former prime minister denied having contacted Asif Zardari during the no-confidence motion, which led to his government’s ouster in April.
”I have been saying for 26 years that Asif Zardari is the same as Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)”, the former prime minister repeated that he had no agreement with anybody to call off the long march.
Despite refusing to reveal the name of the person who sent the message, Khan said the organization influenced by the United States wants Pakistan to recognize Israel.
Again criticizing the current government, the former prime minister said that the current regime has begun trading with India.
“Friendship with India means trading Kashmiri blood,” he added. On 29 May, Imran Khan said the current government led by the Pakistan Nawaz Muslim League (PML-N) would recognise Israel after the visit of a delegation.
