Imran Khan in an interview with CNN claims that the people within intelligence agencies feeding him information!
PTI chairman Imran Khan appeared in an interview with CNN’s Connect the World, with Becky Anderson on Monday making a fresh set of accusations.
Imran Khan has claimed that he does not need any reason to accuse the incumbent government and a senior military official of orchestrating an apparent assassination attempt on his life.
“You don’t need to accuse people of assassination so that you get more popular in this country,” he said, adding, “We know what is happening.”
Becky Anderson during a more than 10 minutes interview pressed former prime minister Imran Khan to provide evidence of government involvement in the shooting incident.
Quoting Imran Khan’s critics, Anderson said that Khan’s claims about the Wazirabad incident supported his political endeavors.
“We know how this evidence… how this whole plot opened up. We know how… who made the video from where it went to which journalist. How it was orchestrated and then the cover-up that is taking place,” Imran Khan responded.
The former Pakistan premier supported his claims by speaking about the 2014 Model Town incident in which 14 people were killed and over 100 injured during an anti-encroachment operation. Incumbent PM Shehbaz was serving as chief minister of Punjab when it happened.
Imran Khan told CNN: “They took out three bullets from my right leg. The left had some shrapnel which they’ve left inside.”
PTI chairman said that his bone has been damaged and that his leg is in a cast, adding that it will take four to six weeks for him to resume normal activity.
Speaking from his residence in Zaman Park, Lahore, Khan said that he received information from the intelligence agencies that the shooting which injured him last week would take place.
When asked by Anderson what information he had been given on the incident, and by whom, Imran Khan replied:
“Remember, three and a half years I was in power. I have connections with intelligence agencies, the different agencies that operate. How did I get the information? From within the intelligence agencies. Why? Because most people are appalled by what is going on in this country.”
"How did I get the information? From within the intelligence agencies."
