In a hard-hitting speech on Sunday, Prime Minister Imran Khan warned the opposition of dire consequences if their no-confidence movement failed against him. Addressing a public rally in Vehari, the premier warned the opposition to be ready for what awaits them should they fail to ouster him from power.
The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) claims to have garnered enough support to send the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government packing. The prime minister said that he would fight the opposition parties till his last breathe, adding that they too must be ready for the consequences if the planned motion failed.
Mr Khan lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo, calling him a “gheedar” (jackal) for trying to evade the course of justice. He said that it was not the first time that the PML-N leader had done so, adding that the PML-N leader had a history of running away from country to avoid accountability.
Mr Khan also criticised the PML-N Shehbaz Sharif, stating that the party was trying to “play on both sides of the wicket”. He said that it was doing so by letting Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz make derogatory remarks against the Pakistan Armed Forces and Shehbaz “polish the boots” insinuating at reversing the damage by praising the Army.
