Imran Khan claims Gen. Bajwa struck a deal with Asif Zardari & CM Sindh

Khan also said that the PTI’s MNAs would appear before Speaker Raja Pervez Ashraf for the verification of their resignations on Monday (Dec 26).

LAHORE/ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan claimed that former army chief Gen. (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa had “struck” a deal with Asif Zardari, co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party and Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah.

Iman Khan asserted this in his media talk with journalists in Lahore on Saturday.

PTI chairman, nevertheless did not disclose the nature of the deal between Bajwa, Zardari and Murad Ali Shah.

Khan berated the PPP and PML_N for receiving “foreign funds” and said that they don’t have their receipts while “We have a database of 40,000 donors.” 

Former prime minister Imran Khan recently admitted it was his big mistake of giving extension to Gen (retd) Bajwa. Khan also accused the ex-COAS of “betraying” him. Imran Khan also told media persons today that he was not in contact with the incumbent establishment “for now”.

PTI chief predicted that the general elections could be held in Pakistan in March or April next year.

Khan also said that the PTI’s MNAs would appear before Speaker Raja Pervez Ashraf for the verification of their resignations on Monday (Dec 26).

The government, however, has repeatedly ruled out holding early elections citing several reasons, including floods, and said they might take place in October 2023.

“We will also remain allies with the Q-League (Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid) as they have stood by us,” the PTI chief said as the political turmoil in Punjab persists.

“I will not inflict pain on the masses for remaining in power. Once I form my government again, I will not compromise on anything,” the PTI chief said.

Taking a swipe at Minister for Foreign Affairs Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, he said that the Bhutto scion has gone on more visits abroad than he did during his three-and-a-half-years in tenure.

“Also, if he is claiming that he is paying for foreign trips through his pocket, then are these his private visits?” he wondered.
