Addressing a public gathering in Lower Dir at Balambat ground in Timargara, the Prime Minister said that he told COAS that he is not calling the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leader “diesel” but it was the public that has given the PDM chief this name.
“I want to convey this messaga that when a person bows down in front of somebody, they lose their self-respect, and when a nation bows down in front of somebody, no one respects that nation and its passport,” he said.
The PM told the charged crowd that he has focused on three things since he entered into politics 25 years ago.
“I want to make Pakistan self-dependent, to develop our country into a welfare state and to ensure that law and justice prevail in our land,” PM Imran Khan told the charged crowd.
“These three principals have been a part of PTI’s manifesto and these were adopted from Riasat-e-Madina,” he added.
Speaking about the three “stooges”, leaders of Jamat-e-Ulema Islami-Fazl (JUI-F), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), who have made an alliance against him, PM Imran Khan said taht the chiefs of these parties were among those who have been ruling this country for the past 30-35 years.
“If today the world does not recognize Pakistan’s green passport, it is because of these three leaders who mortgaged Pakistan,” the premier said.
Recalling Fazl’s previous conference, PM Imran Khan said that Fazl, who is also the president of PDM, had ealier said that when he comes into power, he will fix the institution. However, the PM claimed that PDM chief had meant “he wants to fix Pakistan Army.”
Criticising him for this statement, he said that if Pakistan is surviving today, it is because of a strong army.
“Muslim countries including Somlia, Syria, Afghanistan are in crisis, however, Pakistan is saved because we have the most powerful army in the world,” he said.
