There is still a threat to my life,’ says Imran khan in an interview with a French news channel.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan in an interview with FRANCE 24, said that there is still a threat to his life and he could be attacked again in the near future after the Wazirabad incident.
“Unfortunately, I think they can try again. People wanted to eliminate me because my party as PTI is the most popular political party in Pakistan. The only way to get me out of the way is to eliminate me. I had told in the public meeting six weeks ago that a religious fanatic is planning a murder.”
PTI chairman Imran Khan also criticized the PDM government and said that people do not want the criminals currently ruling Pakistan. PTI has won 75% in recent by-elections in the country.
Imran Khan responding to a question about the Wazirabad incident said that he has requested the Supreme Court to conduct a transparent investigation into the incident.
“We were attacked by two assailants and I know that an independent investigation will prove that it was all a plan and it would have benefited the present government the most,” he said.
The former prime minister denied having backtracked on his claim that he was toppled as part of a collusion between the US and the Pakistani elite.
Imran Khan stressed there was indeed evidence that the US administration wanted to oust him, saying that a diplomatic cable proved his claim and that the issue was now in the hands of the chief justice.
However, he said he did not want to go against the interests of the people of Pakistan by antagonizing a superpower.
