LAHORE: Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, said on Friday that the military still didn’t appear to be impartial on the vote of confidence problem after spotting the establishment’s hand behind Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi’s assured words about not conducting a second confidence vote.
Mr. Khan accused the military of using political sabotage against his party during an informal discussion with a group of court reporters. He said that PTI parliamentarians were being persuaded to forego the trust vote processes.
He added that thus far, three lawmakers had told him that they had been contacted for the purpose. Additionally, he asserted that the military, whom he refers to as “neutrals,” was attempting to impose the PPP in Punjab.
Elahi advised him and the rest of the PTI to “be cautious” while discussing retired Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, the former head of the army. Mr. Khan said, “He has his opinion concerning Gen Bajwa and we have our position.”
The PTI leader insisted that he was fighting for the “sake of justice” rather than against the establishment.
