PTI Chairman and ex-prime minister Imran Khan cautioned on Wednesday that if the establishment does not “make the right decision” then Pakistan would break split into “three parts”.
In an interview with a private TV channel, the ex-prime minister whose government was overthrown through a no-trust move in April earlier this year said the current political situation was a problem for both the country and the establishment.
“If the establishment fails ”to make the right decision”, I can give you assurance in writing that they and the army will be destroyed because of what will happen if the country goes bankrupt,” he said.
The former prime minister has warned that once the country is destroyed, it will fail, and the international community will call on Pakistan to move towards denuclearization- as Ukraine did in the 1990s.
“Indian think tanks abroad are thinking of separating Baluchistan, they have plans, which is why I put pressure,” said the ousted prime minister, without mentioning who he is putting pressure on. Moving on, the former Prime Minister said the coalition government would please the United States “in every possible way”, as PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and PPP Co-Chair Asif Ali Zardari always worked on making the link between America, India, and Israel “happy”.
Their (governmental) plan is not to make Pakistan strong […] when I was ousted, there were celebrations in India as Shehbaz Sharif was an Indian [who took power],” he said.
The former prime minister said that India did not like him in office because he wanted an independent foreign policy.
“So, when one wants an independent foreign policy, one must sometimes say no.”
He repeated his demand to Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial to investigate the alleged threat letter his government received from the United States—which he says he talked about for ousting his party from power.
The former prime minister assured that he would march back to Islamabad, but noted that his demonstration was dependent on the ruling of the Supreme Court.
