Government Intends to Keep Imran in Jail ‘As Long As Possible’: Rana Sanaullah

Rana Sanaullah

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Adviser on Political and Public Affairs, Rana Sanaullah, has lent weight to reports suggesting that the federal government plans to file new cases against jailed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan.

This strategy is purportedly intended to prolong Khan’s imprisonment and delay his release from prison.

During his appearance on Geo News program ‘Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath’ on Tuesday, Sanaullah commented on Imran Khan’s political agenda, stating, “Imran Khan’s main agenda is to destabilize the country and spread chaos and anarchy.

That’s why the government will certainly try to keep him behind bars as long as possible.” He made these remarks in response to a question regarding reports that the government aims to hinder the release of the PTI founder despite court relief in several cases.

Sanaullah emphasized that Khan’s persistent agenda of spreading anarchy and disorder necessitates his continued detention for the country’s betterment.

The adviser clarified that the government would employ all legal avenues, including the registration of new cases, to delay Khan’s release.

However, he stressed that these measures would be taken in accordance with the Constitution and the law, and that the government would not resort to forcefully detaining Khan.

Acknowledging that the PTI, like the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), received a public mandate in the general elections, Sanaullah accused Khan of violating this mandate through violent protests and alleged orchestrations of the May 9 riots, including attacks on courts.

Despite these accusations, he expressed confidence that Khan’s release would not lead to significant unrest, saying, “No storm will come if the PTI founder manages to walk free from prison.”

Sanaullah also called on Khan to engage in political dialogue with his rivals in a democratic manner, asserting that the Nawaz-led party holds no personal grudge against him.

He criticized Khan’s apparent refusal to believe in political dialogue and democracy, noting that even if Mahmood Khan Achakzai, a mediator nominated by the PTI-backed opposition alliance Tehreek-e-Tahafuz Ayeen (TTAP), initiated talks, Khan would likely seize the opportunity to negotiate.

In conclusion, Sanaullah underscored the importance of dialogue in resolving political disputes, suggesting that there is no viable alternative to holding talks to settle differences.
