Ready to talk to army chief for betterment of Pakistan: Imran Khan

Imran Khan asked the army chief to find out any corruption cases against him.


Former Pakistan Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said that he is ready to hold talks with Army Chief General Syed Asim Munir for the betterment of the country, ARY News reported on Friday.

Talking to media persons at his Zaman Park residence, Imran Khan said that he will not surrender to anyone and he is not fighting the ruling establishment but if no one is ready to talk then he cannot do anything.

He challenged his political rivals to prove even a single corruption charge against him and his wife. He asked the army chief to find out any corruption cases against him. ARY News reported that she alleged that Qamar Javed Bajwa backstabbed her and should face court martial.

He further said that Mohammed bin Salman is still in touch with him. The former Prime Minister said that he has recorded a video message regarding the threat to his life which is present abroad.

Pakistan-based Dawn newspaper reported that earlier on Tuesday a non-bailable arrest warrant was issued against Imran Khan.

According to Dawn, just hours before the warrant was issued, Khan secured bail in two other cases related to prohibited money and terrorism as he appeared in courts at the Islamabad judicial complex accompanied by a large number of party workers Were.

The PTI chief was to appear in Islamabad courts in four different cases.

Khan was scheduled to be arraigned today in the Toshakhana case, but his lawyer requested the court to exempt him from the hearing as he has to appear in several other courts. According to the Dawn report, his indictment had been deferred twice earlier.

Pakistan’s Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal adjourned the hearing till March 7.

Soon after the setback, Imran Khan moved the Islamabad High Court, which granted him anticipatory bail till March 9 in the attempt to murder case.

According to a Geo News report, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) recently summoned the PTI chief on March 9 in the Toshakhana case.

The PTI chairman has been asked to appear before the anti-corruption watchdog on March 9 at 2:30 pm.

The development comes shortly after NAB chairman Aftab Sultan resigned from the post citing personal reasons.

In its notice sent to Khan, the anti-corruption body wrote: “The competent authority has taken cognizance of the offense allegedly committed by the accused persons under the provisions of the NAO, 1999,” Geo News reported.
