Ex-prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan has made a shocking assertion that a plot was being hatched to kill him, saying that he has recorded a video in which he has named all the characters involved in the alleged US-backed “foreign conspiracy”.
“A conspiracy is hatching behind closed doors to kill me… I have recorded a video and kept it somewhere safe.… I have named all the characters involved in the plot in the video,” he said while addressing a public rally in Sialkot on Saturday.
“I knew it and I learned it a couple of days ago.”
Explaining why he recorded the video, Imran said, “If anything happens to me, I want to let the Pakistanis know who has been involved at home and abroad.”
Imran said he had tried to reveal in the video the plotters who had collaborated with the “looters” in the country.
The PTI chief also stated that his video will expose all “traitors” and all those who played a role in the alleged plot.
He added that he was calling on the people to make a sacrifice to free the country from looters.
Khan also reproached the authorities for their supposed efforts to prevent his party from organizing the rally.
The PTI chief blamed the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo debacle on Nawaz Sharif, calling him and his party a bunch of “cowards”
Speaking to his supporter, he said that, while in power, his party never prevented its political opponents from holding demonstrations.
Criticizing his opponents, Khan said, “Three stooges [Shehbaz, Zardari, and Fazlur Rehman] should listen that they cannot prevent the Azadi movement.”
“This is not politics, but a revolution that is coming,” Imran shouted in front of the crowd.
He added that those responsible for the accountability process did not regard corruption as bad practice and allowed the powerful to evade accountability.
Referring to pressure on those who investigate mafias, he asked, “Where are our courts and how will our institutions cope with these criminal elements.”
Imran asked the judiciary why they were not acting despite “the destruction of the country and national institutions”.
At the end of his speech, Khan invited the people of Sialkot to march toward Islamabad on his call. “I’m sure you know enough about it.”
