30

Federal Minister for Climate Change and PPP Vice President Sherry Rehman has said that President Arif Alvi’s statement that the PTI was helped by the former army chief during general and Senate elections was a charge sheet against Imran Khan.

In a series of tweets posted on Monday, Ms Rehman wrote: “Arif Alvi’s statement is a charge sheet against Imran Khan. Imran Khan and Tehreek-e-Insaf should explain his statement. Nowadays, Imran Khan is accusing the former army chief of plotting against his government, while his own president is saying that the former army chief helped him in the Senate and general elections.”

“Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said on the floor of the National Assembly on the very first day that he was a “selected” prime minister. Though belated, Arif Alvi has confessed that Imran Khan was a selected (premier). Now on one hand, he (Imran) is blaming the establishment and on the other, he is asking it to play a political and administrative role. “Imran Khan is instigating state institutions to interfere in the political and administrative matters and play an extra-constitutional role to bring him to power. Imran Khan has got used to doing politics on crutches. He should avoid making institutions a part of his political narrative.” President Dr Arif Alvi has made a big revelation by disclosing that former army chief General ® Qamar Javed Bajwa and his team helped Imran Khan during general and Senate elections. President Alvi made this disclosure during a dinner hosted in his honour a couple of days ago. He confessed that the former army chief and his team helped the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf during general elections. —NNI
