I “blocked” the numbers of those in institutions: Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has claimed the establishment is calling him but he has blocked their numbers and will not speak to anyone until a date for the general election is announced, claiming to drop a bomb nuclear attack on the country would be better than having “criminals” at the head of the government.
Khan, who was ousted from power last month in a no-confidence motion, becoming the first Pakistani prime minister to be unceremoniously ousted by parliament, urged people to prepare for the ‘historic march’ to the federal capital and said that “many options (would) be open when people come to the streets”.
“Messages are coming from the establishment, but I won’t speak to anyone until the date of the next general election is announced,” the Dawn newspaper quoted Khan as telling reporters on Friday.
Khan said he had “blocked their numbers”.
Khan has repeatedly said that the United States conspired with opposition leaders at the time to overthrow his government.
He asked those who supported the “conspiracy” whether they were worried about the future of Pakistan, the Geo news channel reported.
“It would have been better to drop an atomic bomb on Pakistan than to have these criminals in power,” he said.
Pakistan’s President Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) said he learned about the ‘conspiracy’ in June last year but sadly ‘every decision’ was made to weaken his government – and he was eventually fired.
Khan said his relations with the establishment (the military) were good until the last day of his government, but there were two issues they disagreed on.
The former prime minister said ‘powerful quarters’ wanted Usman Buzdar removed as chief minister of Punjab province, but he would tell them there were ‘more problems with corruption and corruption. governance in Sindh”.
The second disagreement with the establishment concerned the country’s then-spymaster, Lt. Gen. Faiz Hameed.
“I couldn’t even think that corruption wasn’t a problem for ‘power quarters’ and they would impose these criminals on the country, but unfortunately it happened,” said the 69-year-old cricketer became a politician.
Earlier, Khan launched a veiled investigation into the mighty military for allowing the opposition’s crucial no-confidence motion filed against him to become a success, saying he had warned ‘neutrals’ that if the ‘conspiracy’ succeeded, the country’s fragile economic recovery would go into a “spin”.
Khan took to social media after the Pakistani rupee continued to depreciate and hit 193 rupees against the US dollar, the lowest in the country’s history.
He said the “imported government” was doing nothing as the market waited for action.
Since his ouster, he has accused the United States of conspiring against his government – a position that the outgoing government of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has refuted.
State institutions like the judiciary and the military have come under heavy criticism from pro-Khan supporters since their leader was ousted from power in a vote of no confidence.
Since then, Khan has held several public rallies in different cities, calling the new government “traitors and corrupt leaders” allegedly imposed at the behest of the United States.
