Nawaz will attack army, judiciary if he returned from London
KAMALIA (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Saturday that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is already standing with former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif and he [Sharif] will attack army and judiciary if he returned from London.
Without mentioning Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chairman at the start of his speech, the prime minister mocked JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman by asking the charged crowd of the rally if diesel prices have decreased in Kamalia or not.
Watch PM Imran’s speech
Imran Khan while thanking former president and PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari and the PDM chairman took a jab at PML-N president by saying, “Shehbaz Sharif starts polishing shoes wherever he finds one.”
The PM said the dissident members of his party were returning to their old fold after looking at the faces of these three people.
PM Imran said that the ECP is with Nawaz Sharif, adding that the fugitive will return to Pakistan from London once his corruption cases ended. He said that the former PM will not let the independent judiciary work.
He said that efforts of the ‘three mice’ to topple his government were focused on evading the huge corruption cases and declared that he would not spare them if his life was at stake.
“Losing a government is a minor thing, I will not spare you (referring to opposition leaders), if my life is at stake,” he said.
The premier went on to say that the three stooges (a reference he coined for the corruption-tainted leaders of the main opposition parties) had been hatching a conspiracy to pull down the government of Imran Khan since they had not been getting any NRO.
He appealed to all Pakistanis to reach Islamabad for the March 27 public gathering as the opposition was giving millions of rupees to the member of the National Assembly to switch sides.
“It is the obligation for the whole nation to stand against evil and side with the good and support those people who have been waging war against these thieves and plunderers,” he told the gathering amidst thunderous applause of the supporters who were waving PTI’s flags and chanting party slogans.
The prime minister termed March 27, a ‘decisive day in the country’s history as the mammoth crowd would gather in the Capital on his call to give a message to those criminals that the days of their plunder and loot were over.
“The day will revive the nation. When a nation stands for the right, it is revived,” he said, adding that the whole nation should raise its voice to end evil and vice.
A day earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that three rats wanted to hunt him down but he will defeat them as they want Imran Khan to give them NRO somehow but “I will not give them NRO like General (R) Musharraf.”
It merits mention that opposition seeks to throw Khan out after rallying thousands of people on a campaign that he has mismanaged the economy, governance and foreign policy.
No Pakistani prime minister has ever completed his term in office.
The joint opposition consists of major parties such as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) – of former prime ministers Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto – and has a strength of nearly 163 in the lower house.
It needs a simple majority of 172 to prevail in the no-confidence vote.
