Islamabad, November 13, 2020 (PPI-OT): Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated government’s firm resolve to continue accountability process in the country. In an interview with a private TV channel, he said opposition tried to blackmail government in the pretext of FATF laws. The Prime Minister said purpose of opposition parties is just to protect looted money.

He said the past governments destroyed the national institutions and large public sector organizations are under heavy debts. Imran Khan said Nawaz Sharif is targeting Pakistan army for his own vested interests. He said it is the army which has always protected our motherland.

He said just like the Indian strategy, the opposition leaders are trying to discredit the Pakistan Army, which would be tantamount to disintegrating the state into three parts. He said during the last 73 years, India never had an anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan government like Narendra Modi’s, which wanted hybrid warfare in Pakistan.

The designs such as planting spies like Kulbhushan Jadhav were part of the attempts to destabilize Pakistan. He said unlike Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya, Pakistan stood safe just because of a strong army and nuclear arms. He said incumbent government has put Pakistan on right track and people will soon witness change in the country.
