Imran Khan claims democracy is not under threat
Imran Khan, chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has claimed that there is no threat to democracy, but the current political leadership in the country is under threat of losing power.
According to Imran, the current political leadership in Pakistan has done nothing for the country and are worried about losing the trust of people. He added that this was the reason why the government has been using the threat to democracy as an excuse.
Imran also claimed that president Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani were trying to divert the attention of Supreme Court towards other issues rather than the memogate scandal.
The PTI chief slammed the current political setup in the country, saying that the corrupt leaders have deprived people of the true democracy. He said that it was high time for a change in Pakistan.
Imran vowed to win the next General Elections in the country and said that the rival parties Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) fear him.
Earlier, the PML-N leaders Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif alleged Imran of being supported by the establishment. According to them, the PTI chief was in support of a military dictator, who was former President of Pakistan Parvez Musharraf.
However, the cricketer turned politician denied such allegations and said that the Sharif brothers were the real product of establishment.
According to Imran, “A case is already pending in courts against the PML-N’s top leaders over taking money from the establishment. The federal and Punjab governments have failed at every front and therefore there is no need for the establishment to hatch conspiracies
PML-N has always been alleged of being running after power, as they have a history of joining hands with the opposition in order to come into rule.
Nawaz was an ally of military dictator Zia-ul-Haq, but now curses him because of the damage he caused to the nation.
Similarly, he joined hands with the Mutahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain in the nineties, but then turned against him and finally he did the same with PPP.
