ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and Former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday demanded that the Supreme Court should conduct an open hearing into the matter relating to the “threatening” diplomatic cable a day after National Security Committee affirmed its existence, ARY News reported.
Pakistan's former prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday said the prime minister of a small country like New Zealand even does not get a threat like what he got as the prime minister. "We are a country of 22 crore. Even the PM of a small country like New Zealand does not get threats like this," Imran Khan said adding that former prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and military ruler Pervez Musharraf had also received threats but the one he received was shameful for the country.
Even New Zealand prime minister does not get a threat like this, former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan said.
He demanded that the Supreme Court of Pakistan should conduct an open hearing into the case so that all the characters behind this “conspiracy” be exposed.
PTI chief deeply criticised the incumbent government and said that the “biggest tragedy of this whole episode” is that a government of crooks and thieves has been imposed after his government’s removal.
“They say there’s no conspiracy, I ask if imposing a govt of these crooks and thieves is not a conspiracy, what else is?” asked Imran Khan.
He added that even PML-N loyalists should think that in all these years, why their party hasn’t found a single person who is eligible to become PM or CM?.
The former PM, while answering a question, said that Shehbaz Sharif (now PM) had claimed that he will side with me if such a letter exists.
