Imran Khan claims “false cases” would be made against him and his former cabinet by FIA and NAB
At the beginning of his address, Imran Khan asked the attendees of the jalsa to listen to him carefully so that they could determine whether his ouster from power was an “interference or conspiracy”.
The PTI chairman also asked a charged crowd to raise their hands and show whether they believed his removal was an “interference or a conspiracy”.
‘I stand with humanity’
“A major international conspiracy was carried out against this country,” said Imran, adding that throughout his tenure, he was not against any country and stood with humanity.
The former prime minister also shared that since a “strong and powerful” Pakistani community lives in the United States, he believes in establishing congenial relations with all countries.
“My Pakistanis, I want friendship with everyone but I cannot allow our country to become a slave to anyone,” he maintained, adding that before coming to Karachi, people were telling him that his life is under “threat” as “mafias” are after him.
“[Nonetheless, I decided to come here] as my life is not as important as your freedom. This conspiracy is to make you slaves to foreign powers. One Mir Jaffer has been imposed on us via a conspiracy,” he said while referring to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The PTI chief then went on to explain to the crowd who Mir Jaffer was.
Explaining the alleged conspiracy against him that led to his ouster from the government, Imran Khan told the people that he learned three to four months ago that US officials had started meeting the leaders of the then Opposition along with PTI’s dissident MPs and journalists at the American embassy.
Imran Khan said that after those meetings, when US State Department official Donald Lu met the Pakistani ambassador, he knew that the no-confidence motion was being tabled against his government.
The PTI chairman claimed that the official had “threatened” the Pakistani envoy that if the motion is not successful “then it will be very difficult for Pakistan”, adding that he said Pakistan would be “forgiven” if the no-confidence motion is “successful”.
