Imran Khan wants to unleash civil war in Pakistan, alleges PM Shehbaz Sharif

Prime News, International (Islamabad), May 24:- Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday alleged that Imran Khan wants to unleash a “civil war” in the country, a day after the ousted premier asked his supporters to march peacefully to Islamabad on May 25 to press for the dissolution of the National Assembly and fresh elections.

Khan, 69, the cricketer-turned-politician, was removed from power through a no-confidence vote in parliament by the Opposition parties last month.

“Imran Niazi wants to initiate a civil war in the country. But he is mistaken. The nation will never forgive him [for the sin] and will hold him by the collar,” Prime Minister Shehbaz said on Monday, while addressing questions from the press.

When asked if the government would call in the army to stop Khan’s long march, Shehbaz said that a decision would be taken if and when needed.

Addressing a press conference after his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party’s core committee meeting in Peshawar on Sunday, Khan said the march would convert into a sit-in and continue until his demands are accepted.

“The main demands for the march to the capital were the immediate dissolution of the National Assembly and a date for the next general election,” he said during the press conference.

Khan said he wants people from all walks of life to participate in the march to raise clamour against his removal as the prime minister which he called “illegal”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
