Ruling coalition warns ‘traitor’ Imran Khan against attacking Islamabad

  • Coalition partners hold important meeting in Islamabad.
  • Express deep concern over audio leaks.
  • Rulers want people working against state’s interest to be brought to justice.

The ruling coalition Wednesday termed PTI Chairman Imran Khan a “traitor”, warned him against attacking Islamabad, and asked the governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to abstain from becoming a “tool” in paving the way for chaos in the country.

During a meeting of the coalition rulers at the Prime Minister’s House — chaired by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif — a discussion was held regarding the country’s political and economic conditions, including the situation on the interior and external front, a statement issued in this regard said.

During the meeting, the government expressed condolence over the deaths that occurred in the wake of the devastating floods and recited Fatiha for the departed souls. In addition, participants of the meeting said they were satisfied with the relief and rescue work being carried out for the flood victims in the country.

Participants of the meeting appreciated PM Shehbaz’s leadership skills and also commended the role of the federal and provincial governments in mitigating the effects of the devastating floods. They also lauded the efforts of the armed forces in helping the flood-hit people.

Shedding a light on the political milieu of the country, the coalition partners decided that “no one would be allowed to attack Islamabad by crossing the limits of the Constitution and law.”

In an apparent reference to PTI Chairman Khan’s long march call towards the capital, the members of the meeting termed him a “traitor, conspirator and rioter” for “instigating state institutions to act against the Constitution.

“The one, who is inciting the institutions to act against the Constitution, wants to push the country into a serious crisis. Therefore, it is necessary to pull legal reins in on him as it is a constitutional demand,” the statement said.

The participants also expressed their deep concern over the matter of audio leaks and endorsed the cabinet’s decision to launch a probe into the matter of the diplomatic cypher.

The session under the PM chair also urged the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to urgently complete the probe against elements involved in serious crimes against the state and national interests.

During the meeting, newly appointed Finance Minister Ishaq Dar briefed the session on the country’s economic situation and talks being held with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Dar said due to the disastrous four-year economic policies of the previous government, none of the economic indicators showed positive signs.

“The debt of Rs20,000 billion taken during the previous government’s tenure had pushed the country to the verge of default,” he added.

Speaking about the depreciation of the US dollar against the rupee after taking charge, Dar said that he was hopeful the value of the US dollar would decrease below Rs200.

The meeting expressed its satisfaction over the measures taken by Dar and appreciated his performance.

During the meeting, PM Shehbaz and coalition partners also decided to ensure a reduction in electricity prices.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
