Moon Desk: Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan on Friday accused PPP co-chair Asif Ali Zardari and ‘powerful agencies’ of the country of being behind a plot to kill him.
“Asif Ali Zardari is behind a Plan ‘C’ to kill me and he has given money to a terrorist organisation for the purpose,” Imran said while addressing his supporters today (Jan 27).
“The facilitators in this are the people belonging to powerful agencies [of the country],” he maintained.
He added, “It is a decision that has been made from three sides.”
According to ex-premier, Asif Zardari has unlimited money that he has gotten from Sindh government and he also uses it to buy loyalties of the MPs during Senate’s elections.
Imran said he was revealing this to his nation so that they know about the culprits if something happens to him.
“I have written out their names so that people may know. They want to get me out of the way using any means that they can,” he claimed.
The PTI chairman also said that the conspirers want to somehow defeat the former ruling party (in the elections).
“When I revealed the conspiracy hatched earlier, during a party rally, they made a retreat from it.”
“The Plan ‘B’ was plotted with the aim to target me under the garb of desecration of the religion. They conducted a campaign for the plan and had neared its success, but life and death are in Allah’s hands.”
During his address, Imran reiterated that he would take to the streets when he is better and will not be ‘confined’ [by such threats].
Last month, the PTI chief claimed that former Chief of Army Staff Gen (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa struck a deal with former president and PPP co-chair Asif Ali Zardari, and Sindh chief minister Murad Ali Shah.
He had also said that during the past year, he found out that the ex-COAS did not want accountability.
Imran went on to add that in the presence of a “right army chief”, his government would have “cleaned” the country of corruption.
Earlier that week, he had held the ex-general “solely responsible for the country’s prevailing political and economic crises.”
The former premier had also accused Gen (retd) Bajwa of controlling NAB and later “granting an NRO-II” to the incumbent rulers.
“Eventually, [he] asked me to focus on the economy instead and move away from accountability,” Imran was quoted as saying.
