Imran gives choice to
‘Neutrals’ to decide,
says never thought to
bring his Army chief


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that he never thought about appointing some of his favourite army chief in November. Imran Khan addressed the seminar titled “Regime Change Conspiracy and Pakistan’s Destabilization” on Wednesday.

He categorically rejected the claim of Nawaz League’s leader Khurram Dastgir against him that he was going to appoint General Faiz Hameed as the new army chief for personal interests. Former Prime Minister said he never violated merit in sport or even in the hiring in Namal University or Shaukat Khanum Hospital.

The PTI chairman explained that controlling the army by appointing a favourable army chief is a problem for Nawaz Sharif to save his corruption ever.

And now Nawaz Sharif’s party is doing the same thing in all departments and has appointed its favourite heads everywhere like FIA, Imran said.

PTI Chairman Imran said America did not change its regime for democracy but for its own interest across the world. He further stated that is it in our interest to give airbases to the USA in Pakistan?

He added that the clear agenda of the USA is to get airbases in Pakistan, to accept Israel as a state and India as ‘Thanedar’ (policeman) of this region.

So now, it should be decided whether Pakistanis want to be used like tissue paper or not which was the main reason for his slogan “Absolutely Not” anymore.

He said he felt pain when the neutrals appointed the thugs and thieves in the government because he was not thinking about such a thing ever.

He said Brigadier Ranjha did election engineering for PMLN in 2018 and now again such engineering is going on under the command of Princess and Prince with the help of some people in Lahore.

Ending his speech to the seminar, Imran Khan raised a question to the neutrals, “Can be a security guard neutral during a dacoity in the house”.

Khan said that he had said long ago when he came into power that both Nawaz Sharif and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari would join hands “because they have the same interests”.

PML-N leader Khurram Dastgir has stated that I wanted to bring an army chief my choice, but I did not even think who would be the next army chief of the country. “We had decided to appoint the next army chief on merit when the time comes… but yes, I ask the neutrals if there is a burglary in the house, can the watchman remain neutral?”

The PTI chief said that they [PML-N and PPP leaders] were afraid that if I decided to bring in Lt General Faiz Hameed as the next Chief of Army Staff, then their [political] future would be ruined.

Just imagine what will happen when Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah would run the affairs of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), said the former premier, adding that “they have dug the grave of justice institutions to protect their theft while the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has lost its credibility”.

The PTI chairman further said that both the PPP and PML-N leaders are afraid of the army as their ‘theft’ is reported to ISI and other sensitive agencies. “Since Nawaz Sharif and Zardari have stolen money, they want to control institutions,” he added.

Khan said that the United States had threatened one of our rulers to push our country back to the Stone Age, adding that America changes governments for its own benefit and not for the benefit our people.

“The US wants India to be strong and compete with China… it is their agenda to recognise Israel, and forget about Kashmir.”
