ISLAMABAD: Former PTI minister Faisal Vawda said that three snakes in PTI are in a bid to replace Imran Khan to become next prime minister and party head.
He did not mention the names of the political snakes deliberately but said: “Political circles know them and all the three snakes are aspiring for the prime minister’s coveted slot.”
Vawda also claimed that the “two confidants of Imran Khan and three snakes created differences between Khan and the army establishment”. Vawda shared important information about bickering in PTI, conspiracies, and those who damaged the party in a Geo TV programme.
He said, “I had succeeded in settling the issues between Khan and the establishment but the snakes sabotaged everything,” he said.
To a question about IK’s extension offer to the army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the former PTI minister said: “If Bajwa was a trouble-maker and a part of the handlers then how could he become good overnight.”
Faisal Vawda praised the COAS and said that he showed patience despite trolls and smear campaigns against him.
“Khan was hit by a bullet fired from a pistol while [the PTI supporter who lost his life] Moazzam was shot by a bullet fired from a Kalashnikov,” he claimed.
Moazzam’s autopsy report will reveal that he was hit by a Kalashnikov’s bullet, he added.
Responding to another question about the next general elections in the county, Vawda said “we” are demanding polls in May while PDM agrees to conduct elections in October.
Shahzad Akbar a puppet
PTI leader and former minister Vawda further said that Shahzad Akbar, former accountability adviser to Imran Khan, when he was PM, was just a puppet and he used to spend several hours in the office of Azam Khan, the PTI chief’s principal secretary.
“I used to tell Imran Khan that Shahzad Akbar would run away,” he said, lamenting that Khan sahab “blindly trusts his people.”
Faisal Vawda claimed that the Senate chairman Sadiq Sanjrani and deputy chairman would soon be removed and Vawda said “goodbye” to them in advance.
Expelled PTI leader Vawda stressed the need for uprooting the conspirators around Imran Khan. “People are standing with Khan in grudge of PDM,” he added.
He advised Imran Khan not to behave like MQM founder Altaf Hussain and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
