Imran ‘Playing’ With Pakistan’s Interests To Keep His Politics Alive, Says Ahsan Iqbal

Ahsan Iqbal, Minister for Planning and Development, accused former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday of “playing with Pakistan’s interests” in order to keep his “failed politics” alive.

The minister told a press conference in Lahore that the National Security Committee (NSC) had twice dismissed the possibility of a foreign conspiracy, but that “Imran Niazi is playing with national interests to keep his politics alive.”

“If Pakistan wants to be a strong country, we need a strong economy,” he explained. “We can only do that if we align ourselves with the global economy.”

Iqbal’s media appearance comes as the PTI chairman maintains that his removal was the result of a foreign-backed conspiracy.

In his press conference, Iqbal claimed that when the PTI was in power, it stymied the CPEC’s progress and strained relations with the European Union, the United States, and even brotherly Muslim countries, putting the country at risk of isolation.

He stated that he does not want Pakistan to become like Cuba or North Korea. “We must put Pakistan on the path of development, as Malaysia, Turkey, China, and South Korea have done.”

“When a motion of no-confidence was brought against him, he encouraged the deputy speaker (Qasim Suri) to violate the constitution and then portrayed him as a hero,” the minister said of Imran. “These are not heroes; they are criminals. And they will face consequences “Iqbal stated.
