PTI chairman Imran Khan on Monday criticized a former friend of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) during a power show in Swabi and recalled allegations of a Karachi-based group against police officers in the 1990s.
Speaking at a rally in Swabi, Imran criticized the government for its handling of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), which he said would be “destroyed” just like the Karachi police at the hands of MQM then.
He recalled that there was a campaign against MQM in 1996, after which he reached an agreement with the PML-N government then. “The MQM then targeted and killed all the police involved in the operation and so far the Karachi police have not been able to stand up,” said the PTI chairperson.
While Imran has always been very critical of MQM and its political style, he has stopped using the controversial past in his speeches after establishing the government with his help in 2018.
However, their alliance broke down earlier this year when the MQM-P decided to split and support the then-opposition party, which set up a new government. PTI leader also criticized MQM-P.
It is worth mentioning that MQM-P came into existence in 2016 after the split between MQM. The MQM-P is run by the group’s community leaders, while the rest of the group is controlled by London by the organization’s founder and exiled leader.
Sharif, Zardari and Fazl will have a political ‘funeral’.
Imran also accused the Sharif family of corruption cases before attacking PPP chairman Asif Ali Zardari and Jamiat Ulema-Islam-Fazl head Maulana Fazl Rehman.
“They are all united in defeating Imran, but they will all have a united funeral,” he said.
Asking the crowd to come to Islamabad on his phone, Imran said there was only one demand from the people: a new election date for the nation to decide on its leadership.
Imran praised Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for being the only province with one opposition to the PTI and said it reflected strong values, values, faith and trust of the people. He said the whole country knew this a lot of (PTI turncoats) but the ECP (Pakistan Electoral Commission) refuses to recognize that option.
“Finding ways to protect yourself. These turn coats will not be saved by humans,” he warned.
