Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said that former Prime Minister Imran Khan was trying to get in touch with the establishment to escape a difficult situation.
“Imran Khan is confused and out of his mind because of frustration and failure. His rhetoric against the Pakistani army is still ringing in the air, but now he is seeking help from the establishment,” he continued.
Khawaja Asif stated on the Geo News program Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath that the government is moving towards stability with each passing day. Due to the inability to clean up the mess of the last four years, we made painful decisions with some delay, and more will be needed in the coming days.
“However, the outcome of our difficult choices will be in the interests of the country,” he continued.
Defending the decision to close markets across the country at 8:30 pm, Khawaja Asif said: “This decision will save electricity and the problem of power outages will be resolved within the next 20 to 25 days.”
Following the results of the survey carried out by the Public Opinion Research Institute (IPOR) which revealed that the PML-N has lost popularity, it considered that all incumbent government coalition partners should contest the next general elections from the PDM platform. .
“I also ask that our allies in the coalition government run together in the next general elections,” he said, adding that “we will not only win the general elections, but also the next elections.”
Khawaja Asif acknowledged the fact that the PML N’s popularity has waned, but added, “This can be reversed when the masses reap the dividends from our policies.”
