Former Prime Minister of Pakistan and chief of Pakistan
Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), Imran Khan, came under blaze on Tuesday, with the coalition government blaming him for conspiring to derail democracy in the nation.
While addressing the press conference, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan slammed Imran Khan for his comments about martial law & made it very clear that no political party would ever acknowledge such an unconstitutional step.
While mentioning about the military establishment, Minister Sanaullah sta that those who could impose martial law had now planned, as an institution, to accept the Constitution and let the nation move forward on a democratic route.
He was responding to the chief of PTI’s comments that he made on Monday night during an interview. While replying to a question from the anchor about his views on the “talk about martial law” in past days, former PM Khan said that, “If they want, they may impose martial law. What are they scaring me for?”
Later on Tuesday night, Defence Minister Khwaja Asif during an address said that, “The establishment was supporting the democratic setup & there was almost no chance that a martial law will be imposed in the nation.”
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf was trying to bring security institutions into politics, he stated, mentioning that security institutions “are well alert about their responsibilities given in the Constitution.”
Meanwhile, Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman has also criticized Khan and his comments indicated a “fascist mentality.”
In a fleet of tweets, she said while institutions maintained they would not interfere in politics, Khan insisted on their intervention. She said that, “His objective is that either they offer a deal or impose martial law.”
