“Threat To My Life”: Imran Khan, Ahead Of No-Confidence Motion

Lahore: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he has some credible information about his life being in danger, but he asserted that despite the danger he has no fear and will continue to fight for independent and democratic nation. 

In an interview with ARY News ahead of Sunday’s no-confidence motion in the National Assembly against him, Imran said that after the establishment (the powerful military) gave him three options of no-confidence vote, early elections, or should resign from the position of PM.

He said that not only his life is in danger but the Opposition will be resorting to his character assassination.

“Let me inform my nation that my life is at risk too, they have also planned for my character assassination. Not only myself but my wife too,” Imran Khan said.

When he was questioned about options given to him by the Opposition, he replied that he thinks he should not talk with Opposition leaders like Shehbaz Sharif.

“If we survive (the no-confidence vote), we cannot of course work with these turncoats (who left PTI to join the Opposition), early elections are the best option, I will urge my nation to give me a simple majority so that I won’t have to do compromises,” he said.

He terms oppositions no-confidence motion as a conspiracy. He said that he had an idea about it since August last year, and he had reports stating that some opposition leaders were visiting embassies.

“People like Husain Haqqani were meeting Nawaz Sharif in London,” he said.

Imran restated what he had said in a televised address to the nation on March 31, that a foreign country not only expressed disapproval over his premiership but also demanded that he be ousted through a no-confidence vote so that Pakistan be “forgiven”.

As per the ARY News reports, Imran said that the foreign country objected to his independent foreign policy.

Khan said the “threat memo” did not only demand a regime change but clearly mentioned that he should be removed as the prime minister.

Earlier, Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Friday claimed that a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Khan has been reported by the country’s security agencies, ahead of Sunday’s no-trust motion against the premier.
