Govt decides to take action against Imran Khan for leveling allegations against the Pak Army

In response to accusations made against the armed forces, the coalition government has decided to take action against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his supporters.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif asked Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial to appoint a full court panel to look into the attempted murder of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

“To put an end to this turmoil and depravity, the chief justice should appoint a full court commission. Questions would be asked in the future if my request is not heard, the prime minister said during a press conference in Lahore.

PM Shehbaz remarked, “I will appear in the court whenever you will ask me to come,” while reiterating that he will write the chief justice a letter requesting that the court convene as soon as possible and accept its decision.

The commission would be advantageous for the nation and for the country, the prime minister emphasised.

According to a statement released in this respect, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif made the choice during a meeting in the capital of Punjab after the PTI leader intensified his criticism of the authorities.

“The federal government has chosen to use its authority in response to erroneous claims made against institutions. In view of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) declaration, legal action would be taken against Imran Khan and his accomplices “It read.

They stated that the administration has also established a group with constitutional and legal experts to develop a plan.

In a speech broadcast from the hospital, Khan informed his supporters that he was aware of the impending threat and had learnt that a plan was in place to assassinate him “somewhere between Wazirabad and Gujrat.”

On Thursday, Khan was leading a protest march on the capital to demand early elections and the resignation of PM Shehbaz Sharif when he was shot in the leg as he waved to people from a container mounted on a truck.

According to Khan, the attack was planned by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, a top army commander, and PM Shehbaz, who took over as premier after a vote of no confidence in April.

However, the military dismissed the accusations, calling them “baseless and irresponsible,” and urged the federal government to look into the situation and take legal action against individuals who had spread “defamation.”

The military’s media wing stated: “The false and reckless claims by Chairman PTI against the institution and specifically a senior army officer are utterly inappropriate and uncalled for.”

The ISPR continued, “The Pakistan Army takes great satisfaction in being a very competent and well-disciplined organisation with a solid and highly effective internal accountability structure.

The government said in a statement that in addition to criticising PTI for its words on institutions, it will also file legal charges against the party’s members for vandalism and causing a commotion.
