Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that within the next few days he will set the date for “the biggest protest in the history of Pakistan”.
“We have to put all our energy into our real freedom campaign in the next phase. I’ll make an appointment within the next few days,” Khan was quoted as saying by Dawn.
Speaking ahead of PTI’s National Council meeting in Islamabad, Imran Khan said his party was consulting with lawyers but urged party staff to get ready. “It will be the biggest protest in the history of the country. This is our right.”
“I have asked all the party organizations to get ready. We are waiting for the Supreme Court to clear things up. As soon as that is done, I will give the date,” Khan said.
After being removed from power, Khan organized a number of protests, reiterating accusations of foreign conspiracy and his rebuke of the “chosen government” against the Shehbaz Sharif government.
During a recent protest, the head of PTI even suggested that Pakistan could be “divided into three parts” if the establishment did not make the right decisions.
In an opinion piece for Dawn, Pakistani analyst Zahid Hussain said such reckless statements by a former prime minister raise serious concerns about his motives.
“He’s more interested in military intervention than in the political process itself,” Hussain said. “His destructive populist politics are extremely dangerous not only to democracy but also to national security. “.
On Wednesday, Pakistan’s Defense Minister Khwaja Asif said on Wednesday that Imran Khan was trying to reach the facility to get out of a difficult situation.
Asif said in a program on Geo News: “Imran Khan is confused and unable to perceive because of frustration and failure.
