At the first meeting of the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Prime Minister Imran Khan on allegations leveled against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that Nawaz Sharif was trying to spread chaos in the army. The army chief and the director general of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) are speaking out against the DG.
Addressing a convention of the Tiger Force at the Islamabad Convention Center, Prime Minister Imran, quoting Nawaz Sharif’s speech a day earlier, said that it was not General Bajwa, it was an attack on the Pakistani nation.
The Prime Minister further said that Panama Lakes was built by General Bajwa.
It should be noted that a case was filed against Nawaz Sharif in the Supreme Court after his name was mentioned in Panama Lakes. He was later disqualified in July 2017, after which Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was the Prime Minister for the rest of the PML-N government.
Addressing the convention of Tiger Force, Imran Khan said that Nawaz Sharif has become a new Imran Khan after yesterday’s speech.
The Prime Minister further said that Nawaz Sharif was speaking against the Army Chief and DG ISI to spread chaos in the army. The games they are playing. They understand the game well.
Regarding General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Prime Minister said that the Army Chief has given full support to the present government. He helped a lot in dealing with the corona virus after the rains in Karachi. For two years, the military cut defense spending due to lack of money.
Imran Khan said that from today he will try to bring Nawaz Sharif back home and he will put him in a normal jail and not a VIP.
‘Nawaz Sharif is playing a game that is on the international agenda’
Earlier, on the allegations against Nawaz Sharif’s army chief, Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed had said in a press conference in Lahore that Altaf Hussain number two was Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a PDM meeting in Gujranwala on Friday, Nawaz Sharif criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan and told the Army Chief that General Qamar Javed Bajwa had given him the gift. You are the cause of this problem.
Referring to the army chief, Nawaz Sharif further said that he had run a well-run PML-N government. Forced to write judgments from judges. They have to answer.
In the press conference, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that Nawaz Sharif is a notorious criminal and the media coverage that Nawaz Sharif is getting in India was not received by Altaf Hussain either.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that Nawaz Sharif was playing the game which is the international agenda to speak against Pak army.
He further said that this is the same Nawaz Sharif who had gone to court wearing a coat against Asif Zardari in the Memogate case.
It should be noted that Nawaz Sharif’s party PML-N and Asif Zardari’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) are allies in the Pakistan Democratic Movement.
Sheikh Rashid said that what do they think that governments go through meetings. We have seen Benazir’s historic rally in Lahore in 1986 and if this rally is compared to the rally on Benazir and Imran Khan’s Minar Pakistan, it was a failed rally.
Talking to reporters, Sheikh Rashid said that governments do not attend meetings and if governments had to attend meetings, they would have spent 126 days in meetings.
Earlier, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had taken an unexpectedly cautious stance instead of reacting strongly to the launch of a joint opposition anti-government movement.
The strategy of not directly criticizing or reacting to the opposition’s protest rally by government leaders was decided at a meeting of parliamentarians from the PTI and allied parties.
Earlier, government leaders had been critical of the PDM’s announcement of an initial public meeting in Gujranwala.
At the PDM meeting, Information Minister Shibli Faraz reacted by tweeting a poem by Mirza Ghalib.
Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry also tweeted during the PDM meeting. In which five government leaders including the Information Minister can be seen watching cricket on the TV screen.
In a tweet, the federal minister said that he was calming down after watching the cricket highlights.
He also used the hashtag ‘poor opposition’.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said in his address to the parliamentary party that he had no problem with the opposition’s protest rallies.
When Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived at the National Assembly Hall after the parliamentary party meeting, opposition members chanted slogans against him. On which he left the House.
It was being speculated that Imran Khan would address the National Assembly session which was called on the day of the opposition meeting, changing the schedule.
Speaking to VOA’s Ali Furqan after the parliamentary party meeting, National Assembly member Kanwal Shozab said that the parliamentary party meeting discussed inflation and other public issues and asked the government to take action against the opposition movement and public meetings. There is no fear.
He said that the government does not care about the joint meetings of the opposition but it is aware of the public issues and inflation which they are trying to solve.
Kanwal Schwabz says the alliance of opposition parties is unnatural, with different demands and agendas. Which cannot last long.
