Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said on Sunday that Prime Minister Imran Khan was not going anywhere and will complete his five-year term in the office.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the interior minister said that the misunderstanding that Imran will be ousted should be cleared as he was here to stay.
The minister criticised the opposition, saying the opposition leadership was digging its own grave.
“The opposition has been saying since December last year that Imran is going to lose power, but it should clear any misunderstanding that it has about Imran Khan,” Rashid said, adding that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government will complete its term.
“Imran Khan is lucky to have got such incompetent and useless opposition,” the interior minister claimed. The remarks by Sheikh Rashid came amid a standoff between PM Imran Khan and army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa over the appointment of a new ISI chief.
Rashid also criticised Pakistan Muslim League-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz for bashing the state institutions, including the chief of the premier intelligence agency.
He said it was “foolish” to call out the chief of an institution the way Maryam did, adding that the army shouldn’t be discussed in public places.
