Imran Khan, a former prime minister and current head of the PTI, declared on Tuesday that he had had enough of the “cabal of crooks” the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was using to spread false information about him.
PDM, the ruling parties that took over the government after Khan was removed as prime minister in April, harshly criticised Imran Khan’s most recent remarks towards the military and its senior leadership.
The PTI chairman’s Faisalabad jalsa address, in which he threatened to kill the current leaders if a “patriotic” army head was chosen, infuriated the military forces as well.
Khan responded by tweeting that he was keeping up with the “intense propaganda” the PDM’s “cabal of crooks” had been waging against him because they were “petrified of PTI’s increasing popularity.”
“I’ll answer correctly to everyone who has been maliciously manipulating my comments to criticise me today in [the] Peshawar jalsa. Enough is enough,” The previous prime minister gave a caution.
The Pakistani Army expressed its displeasure and “aghast” over the PTI chairman’s recent statement criticising the military in a statement released on Monday by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
