Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), urged on Saturday that the Supreme Court hold an open hearing into the topic of the threatening diplomatic letter, alleging that the National Security Committee (NSC) had confirmed his prior statements once more.
In an interview with the media in Islamabad, he said that the National Security Council’s latest statement proved that the United States was plotting to depose him from power.
Imran Khan said that the letter was genuine and that Pakistan’s former ambassador to the United States had a meeting with American official Donald Lu during which ‘threatening’ language was used.
He went on to say that a senior US official informed the ambassador that Imran Khan would have to be removed through a no-confidence motion, which was introduced the following day by the opposition.
He demanded that the Supreme Court of Pakistan hold an open hearing into the lettergate scandal in order to uncover all of the players involved in the plan to derail the election.
“If the Supreme Court fails to do so, then no prime minister would be able to stand steadfast in the face of conspiracies and threats,” the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) remarked.
As part of the international conspiracy, Imran Khan accused PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif, and PPP co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari of being complicit in the plot.
