My government will call by-elections if opposition resigns, says PM

  • He said Sharif wants to control all institutions and that is why he could not maintain good relations with the army.
  • Opposition wants to create a rift between the civil-military leadership, PM.
26 Sep 2020

Saying that he does not feel threatened, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he will go for by-elections in the country if all opposition members give resignation from the assemblies.

The prime minister in a meeting with news directors of some private TV channels, including Rashid Mehmood from Aaj TV, said that the opposition is not happy to see harmony between the government and the army. He added that they wanted to create a rift between the civil-military leadership.

"The army follows my policy," the PM said. He further said that Nawaz Sharif wants to control all institutions and that is why he could not maintain good relations with the army.

While talking about Sharif's recent address, the premier said that the government had pressure regarding the matter of airing his speech. He said that if they had not allowed the speech to air, many leaders would protest in name of freedom of expression.

Neither Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz nor Pakistan Peoples Party have any political future, the PM said.

While talking about the upcoming Gilgit Baltistan assembly elections in November, the PM said India wanted to create unrest in GB and is spending a lot of money to spread unrest.

He added that India also wanted to create a sectarian crisis in Pakistan by killing religious leaders of Shia and Sunni sects of Islam. He claimed that a group from Islamabad was caught as they intended to kill religious leaders belonging to the two sects.
