ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was playing a dangerous game to weaken Pakistan Army on the behest of India.
Imran Khan said Pakistan Army was standing behind the democratically elected government and any attempt to weaken the institution would harm Pakistan.
“I will prefer to quit power rather than giving an NRO to those who have plundered Pakistan’s wealth,” he said in an interview with a local news channel.
To a query, PM Imran said the running of government was his job and whenever required the army was consulted. “Security issues are dealt by the army in the whole world,” he said.
He said it was the Army which had saved us otherwise the country would have been disintegrated in three parts as per Indian designs.
“We tried our best to have good relations with India, but unfortunately, New Delhi’s BJP regime is ideologically against Pakistan and we are very concerned about it,” he said.
He said the opposition was attempting to hit our institutions, especially the army and the judiciary, to pressurize them to protect their ill-gotten wealth.
“The Army Chief met the opposition to discuss security issues pertaining to Gilgit-Baltistan,” he said.
To another question, the prime minister said the government had decided to give provisional provincial status to GB to address deprivations of the people of area.
He said the government would hold bye-election in all the constituencies if the opposition parties resigned en bloc from the Parliament.
