- The article highlights the political discord in Pakistan, with the PPP pushing for a no-confidence motion.
- Fazlur Rehman alleges that the signing of CPEC agreements prompted the United States to interfere.
- Fazlur Rehman asserts that Imran Khan’s PTI government was brought into power with ulterior motives.
In a media briefing held on Thursday, it was stated that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) insisted on initiating a no-confidence motion, while other political parties such as MQM and Akhtar Mengal advocated for an immediate election. The speaker noted that had the PPP not withdrawn their support, the election could have taken place earlier.
However, it was emphasized that due to national security and economic concerns, early polls were not feasible, and elections were now projected to occur by the end of February.
Fazlur Rehman alleged that after the signing of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) agreements, the United States took action to disrupt political stability and hinder foreign investment in Pakistan, particularly from China. He suggested that this was part of a covert plan to install a puppet government through electoral manipulation.
Furthermore, Fazlur Rehman claimed that those responsible for bringing Imran Khan, the Chairman of PTI, into power admitted to having ulterior motives. He asserted that PTI’s rise to power was intended to weaken the country economically, obstruct the progress of CPEC, foster political instability, and derail the nation’s development.
This perspective was supported by instances where the government halted significant CPEC projects, discouraged foreign investors, and restricted remittances, leading to economic instability.
Additionally, during the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat Conference, Fazlur Rehman celebrated September 7 as a historic day for safeguarding the country’s ideological boundaries, akin to September 6. He questioned why Pakistan faced pressure to recognize Israel, emphasizing that intellectuals on television networks in the previous administration had painted a positive picture of the benefits of such recognition for the country.
