The whole nation and most countries of the world have set their eyes on the undecided fate of the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. The National Assembly session is going to be held today, April 9th, 2022 (Saturday). The session is going to be chaired by Speaker Asad Qaiser, who will decide on the fate of the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. But it seems like the whole nation and Imran Khan himself know what will be the result of this no-confidence vote. Doesn’t it sound like rigged voting? This is not what we think but more than half of the nation knows how it is going to turn out. That’s why Prime Minister Imran addressed the nation before the no-confidence vote. This article will cover the main highlights of the address.
PM Imran Khan said ‘ I formed the party (PTI) on three principles i.e., self-respect (Khud daari), Justice (Insaf), and establishing a welfare state. Today I’ll talk about two principles Khud daari and justice.”
Supreme Courts Decision
Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his disappointment over the Supreme Court’s decision. He further added, “I respect the Supreme Court and Pakistan’s Judiciary.” He further added that he respects the decision of the Supreme Court. ‘I am not disappointed at the decision but at the fact that the Supreme Court didn’t even probe the Deputy Speaker ruling. Why did he pass such a decision?” He said the Deputy Speaker dismissed the no-confidence motion on the basis of Article 5 of the constitution i.e., ‘foreign interference in the no-confidence motion.’ The Supreme Court for once should have taken into account the evidence proving ‘regime change’ and ‘foreign interference’ claims.
The Prime Minister of Imran Khan expressed disappointment over the second matter that Supreme Court didn’t take any action on is the issue of horse-trading. The politicians are openly taking money to take sides. The politicians are being bought at a rate that even beats the horse-trading taking place in the Banana Republic. He said ‘if nothing the Supreme Court should have taken suo-moto action against the current horse-trading.’
During the address, Prime Minister Imran Khan disclosed some contents of the letter he received. He said ‘according to the letter, it was a sure thing that PM Imran Khan’s government will be toppled in the no-confidence vote. And if that happens, we will spare Pakistan but if the PM Imran Khan manages to retain his position, then he and the whole country will have to face serious repercussions.’
Stand against evil
Imran Khan urged the nation to stand against the evil that is prevailing in Pakistan. We are an independent nation what’s the point of being a sovereign state if we are to be dictated by foreign powers. He gave the example of protests that took place in Britain during the Iraq war which was a war waged over oil. The citizens of the UK stood up against the war. If we don’t stop this evil now, it will spread over the whole nation. He called upon the nation to condemn the wrong happening right now in Pakistan.
PM Imran Khan said ‘I urge the nation to come out of their houses on Sunday, after Isha prayers, and carry out a peaceful protest for your freedom, for the future of the country.”
This is the crux and main highlight of PM Imran Khan’s address before the no-confidence vote.
