Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday wrote on his official Twitter handle that the only way out of descending into total chaos is to immediately announce and hold free and fair elections.
Lashing out at the unity government, the former premier said that the way “this cabal of crooks is crushing people under unbearable inflation” while stealing Rs1,100 billion of their money-laundered wealth.
“It’s only a matter of time before we go the way of Sri Lanka & into total economic and political free-fall,” he further said. He alleged that the PML-N-led coalition wanted to pit him against the army and judiciary but asserted such attempts would go in vain. “Listen closely, our life and death is in Pakistan.” He further stressed that people have neither accepted the “US conspiracy” nor will they allow these “thieves” to continue their rule, adding that the “slaves and boot polishers” were responsible for the country’s economic plight.
