Telling the nation that he was prepared to deal with any eventuality, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday vowed to chase his political opponents and not to allow them go unscathed, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) workers at Governor House in Karachi, he said previously he was chained and had to exercise restraint for one reason or the other. “But now, I will break loose and not leave those bringing no-trust motion against me,” he vowed.
He went on to say that one of his MNAs had told him that he was offered Rs200 million by the opposition to change his loyalty and vote for no-confidence motion.
The prime minister said he deemed calling Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman ‘Maulana’ a ‘sin’. “I will better call him ‘Fazlu’,” he insisted.
PM Imran said he had been praying to Allah (The Almighty) for the no-confidence motion against him. “Now when time of their political demise has arrived, they have brought the motion against me in the National Assembly,” he claimed.
He was of the view that the part of Pakistan that needed the ‘change’ the most was Sindh. “I will soon set out on a tour to different parts of interior Sindh,” he informed.
In a political jibe, the prime minister said that petrol and diesel (an apparent reference to Maulana Fazlur Rehman) were cheaper in Pakistan than Dubai.
Continuing his tirade against the opposition leaders, he referred to Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif as ‘Showbaz Sharif’, who had now joined hands with PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, and that Zardari was within his range for quite a long time.
Similarly, he said Shehbaz loved to butter people for the sake of personal gains.
