Gen (r) Bajwa was Looking For Another Extension But Nawaz Denied, Reveals Imran Khan
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that former Army Chief General (Retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa was looking for an extension, which was denied by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) supremo Nawaz Sharif.

This was expressed by former premier Imran Khan in an interview with a private broadcaster at his Lahore home in Zaman Park. The previous prime minister expressed his sadness over General (retired) Bajwa's betrayal. He said, "Although I originally gave him the benefit of the doubt, after the courts opened late at night and the prisoner vans arrived, I came to the conclusion that he was the only one responsible for the plot against me and my government."

Imran Khan said General (Retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa thought Shehbaz Sharif was brilliant. Given that Shehbaz Sharif and he had similar views, he was happy to give him the reins of power. The former prime minister added that while his government and the establishment agreed on Corona and foreign policy, things became tense in the final six months of his administration.

He said, "I did not grow up on a dictator's lap. Every person makes mistakes, but I attempted to learn from them when I began my own political struggle." He said, "I had expected my government and institution to share the same goals and objectives, namely the eradication of thievery and corruption from the nation, but I had been let down."

A caretaker government is always impartial, but this one is seeking retribution. He questioned, "Which caretaker administration imprisons political workers?" He claimed, "There are currently 3,100 PTI employees incarcerated, and their intention is to weaken us."

Imran Khan added that the interim government has a constitutional duty to organize elections 90 days following the dissolution of the assembly. Also, the Supreme Court has ruled that elections must be held in 90 days in accordance with the constitution, but the "thieves" are refusing to accept this, he added.

He claimed that now that people are aware of their rights, it is time for them to get ready to protest. He claimed that if the rule of law was not upheld, the nation would fall apart and turn into a banana republic.
