People are strongest defenders of a country: PM Imran


Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the people were always the strongest defenders of a country’s sovereignty and democracy.

“It is the people who must come out and defend against this latest and biggest assault on Pakistan’s sovereignty and democracy by a foreign power thorough local collaborators — our Mir Jafars and Mir Sadiqs,” he added.

The statement comes as Pakistan Threek-e-Insaf has sprang into action and supposedly kicked of its election campaigning for the polls expected to be held within three months after President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly on Imran Khan’s suggestion.

Earlier, Imran said that the Pakistani nation would teach a lesson to those traitors in the general elections who tried to topple an elected government that was pursuing an independent foreign policy.

Addressing a gathering of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf workers, the prime minister said, “The people of the country will teach a lesson to these traitors (opposition leaders) in the next general elections by burying their politics forever.”

The prime minister referring to his main political opponents said that these three stooges had been plundering the national wealth for the last thirty years and stashed it abroad.

“They can say that beggars are not choosers,” owing to their vested personal interests, he added.

He said a drama had been staged in the country. In the local hotel of Lahore, PTI defectors who had sold their party allegiance were put together.

With such shabby tactics, the democracy, future of the coming generations and solidarity of the nation had been put at stake, he added.

The prime minister said the people had been elected on PTI seats or the reserved seats, and then sold out their conscience for the sake of few million rupees, adding that they would ensure a life time ban for such traitors.

He said these elements were traitors to the nation, to the country and to the coming generations, adding unless they were punished, they would continue bargaining over the democracy for petty monetary gains.

The prime minister said with such a trend, any foreign country could purchase the localities of the lawmakers and topple an elected government.

He resolved that they would fully confront them legally.
