“I don’t want any confrontation with anyone. Unlike others, I live and die in my country. Pakistan army and police are our own institutions. Pakistan is strong and intact due to our armed forces who have sacrificed and foiled all conspiracies of the enemy. We don’t want confrontation with anyone but we would not accept this imported government,” warned Imran Khan.

Criticising Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Imran Khan said that a person who had bee on bail had been imposed on Pakistan as Prime Minister.

“These proven dacoits are now ruling the country which is disrespect to my country. I would never surrender my fight against these crooks till my last breathe,” he added.

“I Could have easily built these roads and upkeep my house if I had declared my houses as PM’s Camp Offices. But I refused to use taxpayers’ money for my personal use. I am on record that I used minimum money for my personal expenses,” he said.

He said that foreign policy revolves around state interest and not for personal interest. He said that he refused to push the country into a war for any other country’s interest.

“This led to my ouster as the US was in habit of dealing with stooges who always put US interest ahead of Pakistan,” he said and added that this is why Shehbaz Sharif had said that beggars are not choosers.

“Three stooges are slaves of the foreign powers and they would always be subservient of the US,” he argued. He urged the people not to ever vote for turncoat politicians and make them an example.

“Whosoever would vote for turncoats would be tantamount to treason to Pakistan,” he said.
