Canada Global (Web News) Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that he has a “personal” dispute with former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa, but that if he returns to power, he will not take action against him.
He said this while speaking with a group from the Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) at his Lahore home in Zaman Park.
General Asim Munir, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), has stated that he will maintain his impartiality, according to Imran. The biggest test of his neutrality, he noted, will be conducting elections within three months after the dissolution of parliament.
He claimed that after Lt. Gen. (retd) Faiz Hameed was fired as director general of the ISI, it became clear that a plot to overthrow the PTI administration had been devised. I warned Gen. Bajwa that no one will be able to run the country’s economy if the plan to overthrow the government is successful, he continued.
The former prime minister claimed that he had explained to the former army chief why Shehbaz should be given consideration for the position of prime minister despite being implicated in corruption charges involving Rs16 billion. But, he said, he later learned that General (retired) Bajwa had no problem with corruption.
According to Imran, Pakistan’s economy would have fared much better if a coronavirus outbreak and China’s two-year blockade hadn’t occurred.
