The Prime Minister tweeted, “Imran Niazi is making threats against the country while I am signing the agreement in Turkey. Niazi is unfit for public office and if any evidence was needed for this, his latest interview suffices.”
In his tweet, he warned Imran Khan, “Do your politics but don’t dare to cross the border and talk about the partition of Pakistan.”
ruckus on interview
The latest comments by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) prime minister on Twitter refers to an interview given by Khan to a private news group “Bol News”. In this interview, the PTI chief urged the government to take the “right decision” and warned that if Pakistan were to lose its nuclear deterrence, it would split into “three pieces”.
The cricketer-turned-politician also said that the current political situation is a problem for the country as well as the government. “If the government doesn’t take the right decision, I can assure (you) in writing that (before anyone else) that and the army will be destroyed because what will happen to the country if the country goes bankrupt,” he said.
He said, “Pakistan is going towards debt default. If this happens, which organization will be (worst) affected? army. What concession will be taken from us once it is affected? nuclear disarmament.” He said the country was going “towards suicide” and the government needed to take the “right decision”.
In a separate statement shared on the PML-N’s Twitter handle, Shehbaz Sharif was quoted as saying that Khan’s remarks were proof that the PTI chief was “involved in a conspiracy, not in politics.”
“This is not a statement but a conspiracy to incite the fires of anarchy and division in the country,” Sharif was quoted as saying in the PML-N’s tweet.
Earlier, condemning Khan’s remarks, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chair Asif Ali Zardari tweeted, “Imran Khan, power is not everything in this world. Be brave and learn to do politics by standing on your own feet.”
