Imran Khan dangerous to country, says Kh Asif

Top PML-N leaders — Khawaja Asif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi— Thursday while giving their party's response to the PM's address rejected the allegations levelled by the Prime Minister and said Imran Khan has become dangerous for the country.
Former foreign minister Khawaja Asif shared that the "letter gate" controversy was being turned into a political issue.
Kh Asif claimed that the foreign funding case against the PTI showed that "non-Muslims" used to fund him. He added that India and Israel used to fund the former prime minister.
"Now he is using the religion card," said Kh Asif.
Kh Asif said the country's military leadership was in a meeting with him today, but when the government received the letter, the prime minister did not inform them.
"He did not tell anyone anything and started flashing the letter in a rally," Kh Asif said.
Kh Asif said Pakistan wants for good relations with the international community — be it the Middle East, Europe, or United States.
"If America wants, they can make financial issues for us [...] the vent that Pakistan is on is due to the US. We have to move towards self-reliance but it will take time," Asif warned.
"He took the United States' name in his address, his address was against the national interest," Asif said while indicating the premier's apparent "slip of the tongue".
Kh Asif said PM Imran Khan had become "dangerous" now as he cannot face the Opposition in the National Assembly anymore.
Taking over the presser, Abbasi said the Opposition benches were in majority and ready to oust the incumbent government. He asked the prime minister to resign while he still could.
The former premier said Pakistan is a country of 220 million Muslims. "Have you served Islam by hurting the country's people?" he asked.
