Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday said that the current political crisis in the country was a foreign-imported conspiracy, adding he would now show the letter he had mentioned in March 27 public meeting to senior journalists and representatives of the government allies that day, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

“I will show the letter to each and every representative of the government allies. People are unknowingly part of this conspiracy,” he said while addressing the inauguration ceremony of e-passport in Islamabad.

“The allies should keep in mind before making decisions that they are not part of the conspiracy,” he stated and added that the conspiracy was bigger than it was being told.

Imran Khan while announcing to share the contents of the ‘conspiracy letter’ with allied parties and journalists, said that Pakistan’s refusal to bow before foreign dictation led to the foreign-imported crisis. “This is a foreign-imported crisis. This is a conspiracy from abroad. The people who used to control Pakistan and get their demands accepted, just on phone call, against Pakistan’s national interests, cannot tolerate, or not in a habit of having a government in Pakistan making decisions in country’s interests,” Imran Khan said.

Addressing the ceremony, Imran Khan said he would share the document on conspiracy with top journalists to satisfy the people thinking it as a “drama”.

The prime minister maintained “People think this is a drama going on. This is not a drama. As we just wanted to protect our national interests, that is why we cannot disclose as which people threatened us. As people doubt as Imran Khan wanted to protect his government, so I decided to share it with top journalists.”

He said people are unintentionally becoming part of the conspiracy. “I will also invite representatives from allied parties and share it with them. I will tell them this document is real. This is conspiracy even bigger than what I am saying. This is clear in the document,” he added.

Imran Khan questioned whether the country got any single benefit of joining the war against terror led by a country which even did not appreciate. He said after joining the US-led war, Pakistan suffered huge human and economic losses and people lost their limbs and suffered paralysis, particularly those from tribal areas, due to drone attacks. “Around 3.5 million people were displaced and the alms-givers turned into alms-seekers over night,” he added.

The prime minister maintained “This is because we sacrificed in our nation’s interest to protect someone else’s interest.”

He said the allied parties would be independent to make their own decision but while doing so, they should keep in mind whether they were becoming part of an international conspiracy against Pakistan.

Calling the no-confidence motion a genuine political method, the prime minister said the political crisis was usual in the parliamentary democracies as sometime the political parties lose the confidence of the people.

The prime minister said the use of technology had eased the people’s lives besides curbing the corruption. He said 22 years ago, Shaukat Khanum Hosdpital introduced paperless working which made a huge difference by doing away with petty corruption and bringing about transparency.

He said the road contracts involved huge corruption and exemplified the construction of roads by the incumbent government in 2021 with the cost of Rs230 million per kilometer lower than the contract agreements of 2013.

He said as per estimates Rs 1,000 billion were siphoned off from the road projects.

Imran Khan lauded the overseas Pakistanis for supporting the national economy through their record $31 billion remittances amidst skyrocketing oil prices. He said the expatriates deserved to be given maximum facilitation at airport and other departments.

Appreciating the interior ministry and National Databases and Registration Authority (NADRA), the prime minister said the e-passport would not only help end queues at airports but also ensure security.

This will also help promote tourism which, besides remittances, was the other solution to bridge the trade gap.

He said the construction of Skardu Airport would enable the tourists to land direct at Skardu instead of waiting for days in Islamabad for the flights. “We never declared tourism as an industry. There should be resorts and other attractions to make tourists spend money here,” he added.
