Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, broke his silence on Friday, one day after being shot during an “assassination attempt,” saying that he had been aware of the impending danger.
“I had previously discovered that there was a plan in place to assassinate me somewhere between Wazirabad and Gujrat,” Khan told PTI supporters from Shaukat Khanum Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries.
On Thursday afternoon, Khan was the target of an attempted assassination and was shot in the leg. He had surgery after being brought to a hospital in Lahore, however the medical staff reports that his condition is stable.
At the start of the press conference, Khan revealed that he had been shot four times and requested PTI stalwart, Dr. Faisal Sultan,Dr. Faisal Sultan to inform the public about his health.
The details of Khan’s injuries, including a fracture among others, were underlined in Dr Sultan’s presentation of the X-ray scans for the party leader.
The Pakistani ambassador was threatened by a US official named Donald Lu, according to Khan, who was recalling the incidents that had occurred since a vote of confidence was filed against him.
After that, a motion of no confidence was submitted, and all of a sudden, he said, “money was being used to buy the fidelity of our MPs.”
He went on to say that the coalition leaders “used the money to become successful,” adding that the government could never have lost the no-trust move.
Because the use of government money would amount to theft from the nation and the people, he stated, “The PTI took a responsible decision to not take part in this auction.”
After this, the government was overthrown, and many people believed that Khan was gone for good. However, the Pakistani people did something they had never done before.
People chose me because they were fed up with them, he said, but when it was time to change the government, the establishment decided to bring them back.
He claimed that decisions were imposed on the people by the establishment. They were shocked this time that people did not support those who had been stealing for the past 40 years.
Because “I was a public leader and was elected with the support of the people, I returned to them and they showed immense support,” the former prime minister said. ” I was shocked as well.”
He continued by saying that the opposition staged three long marches against the government when the PTI was in charge, but “we didn’t stop anyone.”
However, Khan lamented that “they [the coalition government] became terrified and tormented people along with breaking the sanctity of the four walls of houses” in response to PTI’s announcement of a long march on May 25.
The PTI chief recalled the incidents of his first march, which was conducted on May 25 and abruptly ended, and said that when people came out of their houses and protested peacefully, the police used tear gas and shelling to scare everyone away.
He said, “Pakistan’s agencies were not allowing democratic processes to continue.”
