Imran Khan announces to dissolve Punjab, KP assemblies on December 23
While addressing the nation via video link, PTI chairman Imran Khan announced to dissolve the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) assemblies on next Friday (December 23).
At the outset of the address, he narrated how a plot was made to topple his government. He categorically said that there was person behind the removal of his government. “It was Gen Bajwa [former chief of army staff],” he stated.
Addressing to the nation along with the CM Punjab and CM KP, former prime minister feared that the country is heading towards default under the government of cabal of crooks.
“In this country, until free and fair elections don’t take place […] fears will still remain that the country might sink.”
While lashing out at ruling coalition, he said that almost 750,000 Pakistanis have left the country as looters came to the power and they included doctors, engineers and other professionals.
He once again lambasted former army chief and alleged that Gen (retd) Bajwa gave NRO-II to the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leaders.
“Gen (retd) Bajwa committed cruelty to the country by granting NRO-II to the gang of corrupts,” he said.
Khan further lamented that his government worked hard to revive the economy that was on the brink of default when the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) left the government in 2018.
“We even revived the economy that was devastated due to COVID, which wreaked havoc across the country. We introduced […] incentives for all sectors to ensure that they do not suffer.”
Questioning the government about its roadmap, the PTI chief said that the government will not even conduct elections in October .”
“The election commission is conniving with them. A very dishonest man is involved with them, who will tell them ways to delay elections,” Khan said while attacking the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
While concluding his address, Khan thanked Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan for backing his decision. He said, “After disbanding the assemblies, we will start preparation for elections”.
