Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and Former Premier Imran Khan, while talking to International Media Agency Reuters said that he tried to contact the Military for talks but got no response.
Imran Khan claimed that he thinks that General Asim Munir has a grudge against him because he asked him to resign as the head of Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), adding, “I don’t know.”
PTI chief said that he did not know why Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir is ‘fixated’ on sidelining him.
“He shouldn’t have issues with that now because he is the army chief,” Khan said, wondering, “So why would he harbour that grudge?”
Talking about the crackdown on his party, Imran said, “It is completely the establishment,” adding that “They are really now openly – I mean, it’s not even hidden now– they’re just out in the open.”
While talking about the events of 9th May, Imran Khan said that it was a false flag operation that was meant to target him. “That’s the only way they are going to get me into prison,” he added.
“So their only hope, and because they are determined to get me out of the way, I think they will, their whole charade of military courts is to imprison me.” Stating that he has no doubt that the military courts are meant for him, the former Prime Minister said that ISI was involved in the crackdown against his party.
Earlier, in an interview with Independent Urdu, Imran said, “A semi-martial law is already in place in the country” and “everything is happening on the wishes of those in power”. He passed the remarks while talking about the use of the Army Act against civilians.
