Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson Imran Khan alleged that the verdict on the foreign funding case was the government’s attempt to break his party.

““They have created a plan to break our party and the first tactic they have used is in front of you,” he said while referring to the ECP’s ruling on PTI prohibited funding case.,” the PTI chairman said during a video address while referring to the ECP’s ruling on his party’s foreign funding case.

The former premier said that the foreign funding case against his party was “baseless”, adding that his party had provided all the details to the commission.

“People gave us funds and we have audit books to prove that, while other political parties have no evidence to show how they received funds,” the PTI chairperson said.

He said that a conspiracy was being hatched to bring the country’s largest political party close to a clash with Pakistan Army.

“They are trying to create a perspective that PTI and the armed forces are against each other,” the former premier said.

Imran Khan was responding to the government’s accusation that the PTI chairman and other party leaders were spreading hate against the country’s institutions.

He accused the coalition government of being a part of the foreign conspiracy to oust his government, adding that ‘Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq’ had made the foreign conspiracy successful.

The PTI chairman claimed that Israel and India celebrated his ouster through the regime change conspiracy.

Speaking about Shehbaz Gill’s arrest, Imran said that if what Gill said was against the law, the state should have provided him with a chance to explain himself as per the law.

The former premier said that the PDM parties had said much more than what Gill was being punished for. No action was taken against them, he added.

Imran Khan said that PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif spoke out against Pakistan’s interests after Mumbai attacks.

He claimed that Zardari, during his tenure, had sent a message to the then US administration through the former ambassador Hussain Haqqani requesting them to save him from Pakistan Army.

“Now, it seems as though we [PTI] are anti-military and they are patriotic,” he added.

Speaking about the recent drone strike in Afghanistan that killed al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, Imran Khan said that he did not know whether the rumours regarding a deal between Pakistan and the West over using the country’s airspace were true, but, however, he added that any such thing would only lead to further destruction and loss of life in the country.

The PTI chairman said that his party MPAs in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were receiving threats from the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
