Bajwa doctrine still in action: Imran Khan
PTI chairman Imran Khan once again lashed out at former chief of the army staff (COAS) General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa saying, “Bajwa doctrine is still in action in the country.”
Speaking to senior journalists at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore, Khan clarified that he is not in contact with the establishment “for now”.
“The establishment is a reality and only it can play its role for the supremacy of law,” he added.
Referring to his demand for snap polls, Imran Khan revealed that the PDM-led government wanted to move the elections after 2023.
“It is not possible to delay the general elections in the current economic situation,” he said.
Former prime minister said that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari are refraining from heading into general elections as they are “afraid” of him.
Imran Khan, who was ousted from the premier’s office through a no-confidence motion in the National Assembly in April, claimed that former army chief Gen (retd) Bajwa called then-opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif while he was in jail on account of his money laundering case to inquire about his well-being.
“If [Gen] Bajwa wants to inquire about Shehbaz when he is in custody then what is the fault of other prisoners,” he questioned.
