ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday announced to share the “threat letter” with the senior journalists after the Opposition leadership demanded to make the document public.
Addressing the launching ceremony of the electronic passport facility in Islamabad today, PM Imran Khan called the ongoing political situation in Pakistan a “foreign-imported crisis”.
He maintained that a no-confidence motion is the democratic right of everybody as politicians lose confidence in their parties.
Referring to the allegations of the Opposition that the PTI-led government is staging a drama in the name of the “written letter”, he said that he will show the letter to senior journalists and members of alliance parties today to clear the misunderstandings created by the joint Opposition.
The PM opined that the “foreign-imported conspiracy” started when people from abroad started controlling Pakistan through telephone calls.
“They cannot tolerate a leadership that works in the people’s interest,” he said, reiterating his criticism of America’s “war on terror”. He said that Pakistan had paid a heavy price for its participation.
The premier said that many were unaware of the exact scale of the suffering of those living in the country’s tribal areas.
Talking about the electronic passport facility, PM Imran said that the facility is meant for easing the problems of overseas Pakistanis and boosting tourism in the country.
The electronic passport will be laced with the latest biometric chip encompassing several security features. The electronic passport, which is in accordance with international standards, will help in the prompt and easy immigration of Pakistani citizens during their travel.
‘PM Imran ready to share threat letter with CJP’
A day earlier, Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar had said that the premier was ready to share the letter with Supreme Court Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial.
In a press conference along with Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry today, Asad Umar had said only a few of the top civil and military leaders have seen the letter due to its “sensitivity”.
The federal planning minister had said there was a need to explain the “letter” that the prime minister had read out in the PTI’s Islamabad rally, but it could not be shown publicly due to its “sensitive nature”.
Umar had noted that after the masses questioned the credibility of the letter, the prime minister deliberated over sharing the letter with someone, and he thought that it would be right to share it with the CJP — as he is a credible person.
