During a talk show of a private news channel aired on Tuesday, a journalist and analyst Irshad Bhatti revealed that Prime Imran Khan linked the opposition parties’ rallies with the support from foreign countries.
“He didn’t talk about any force but he said ‘there could be some countries behind the opposition’s movement’,” remarked Bhatti as he recently met with the prime minister along with several other journalist.
Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is an alliance against the Imran Khan’s government formed by two mainstream political parties – Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, including some nationalist and religious parties led by Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F). PDM has demanded Khan’s removal from power and it is also mobilizing people across the country.
Earlier, PDM also threatened to submit resignations from the assemblies. While according to Bhatti, Imran Khan hinted at re-elections in only those constituencies from where the opposition members would resign.
Khan also blamed the opposition alliance for creating a chaos in the country as quoted by Bhatti.
However, PDM has already announced to hold a rally in Lahore on December 13 despite facing hurdles created by the government in the wake of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
