Imran Khan’s ‘foreign conspiracy’ lies ripped apart, says Maryam

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has said that former prime minister Imran Khan’s “lies” that the United States orchestrated a conspiracy to topple his government have been “ripped apart”.

“You [Imran Khan] played a dangerous game to cling to power. Used sensitive forums like the NSC [National Security Committee] for the conspiracy drama,” she wrote in a Tweet on her official handle on Thursday.

Her Twitter statement comes soon after DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar categorically said that a communiqué issued following the NSC meeting last month did not contain the word conspiracy and also clarified that the military leadership did not give any options to ex-PM Imran to end the political crisis in the country.

Maryam added that Imran Khan had also approached the establishment to seek an NRO (relief in corruption cases).

In another tweet, she said the time has come to hold the former premier accountable for “playing” with the national security of the country for political gains.

On March 27, the high-powered NSC headed by then PM Imran met to discuss the diplomatic cable which the PTI government claimed contained evidence of the US plot seeking a regime change in Pakistan.

The NSC after the meeting issued a statement expressing serious concerns over the non-diplomatic language used in the cable, saying it was tantamount to interference in the internal matters of Pakistan. The NSC then decided to issue a demarche to the United States.

The NSC statement was subsequently used by former National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri to block a vote on the no-trust move in a development that triggered a constitutional crisis.

Imran claimed the NSC had endorsed the government’s view that vote of no-confidence was part of the conspiracy to remove him from power.
