Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Friday said that a fresh election is the only way to end the instability in the country, local media reported.
While talking to a private news channel, Imran Khan said, “I believe in democracy and the only way to end instability in the country is fresh elections.” The PTI Chief alleged that the current rulers wanted to hold the election after his disqualification. He also said that there is some nexus between them and the Election Commission of Pakistan, ARY News reported.
“ECP had tried to support the incumbent government in Punjab by-polls but the nationals are now fully aware of everything. The current rulers are afraid and now, PDM (Pakistan Democratic Movement) can do what it wants to do but it cannot defeat me.”
Talking about the economic situation of the country, the PTI Chief said that people have seen the poor performance of the “incumbent government” as they cannot bring the country out of the crisis.
“IMF (International Monetary Fund) has also rejected to show confidence in the weak government,” he added.
The former premier said that debts and inflation are continuously rising, whereas, the government failed to end the rupee depreciation against the US dollar despite getting a loan from the IMF, reported ARY News.
Meanwhile, Imran Khan, on his Twitter, announced that he will unveil his future strategy in the forthcoming Gujranwala jalsa today.
“Tomorrow our Gujranwala jalsa will be last of our present phase of Haqiqi Azadi Movement. I will announce the next critical phase at the jalsa. Imported govt & its handlers are so petrified that nation is standing firmly behind PTI they are desperately moving on Minus 1 formula,” he said in a tweet.
