Pakistan’s ousted PM Imran Khan announces plan to topple new government

Pakistan’s ousted prime ministerImran Khanon Sunday announced a plan to topple the new government, with his supporters converging on Islamabad on May 25 for aprotestthat he hopes will prompt the dissolution of parliament.

“We will never accept (the new government) – no matter how long we have to remain inIslamabad,we will remain there,” Khan told reporters in north-western city ofPeshawar.

Khan’s party,Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaaf(PTI), has asked its supporters to converge in Islamabad on May 25 to call for the dissolution of parliament as well as free and fairelections.

Khan, who openly censured the country’spowerful militaryfor not taking his side when he faced ano-confidence vote, asked the military establishment to “stay neutral” and warned authorities against taking any steps to stop the march.

The former premier once again blamed theUnited Statesfor being behind the regime change because he chose to visit Moscow. ThePakistani military, the White House and the State Department have denied the allegation.

The current government of Prime MinisterShehbaz Sharifis attempting to tackle the political, economic and constitutional crises the country has been facing since Khan was removed from office on April 9.

Khan, who had lost the support of allies and some party members who defected to theopposition, refuses to accept anything less than fresh elections.

Khan came to power in 2018 promising to eradicatecorruptionand revive the economy, but failed to deliver on most of his pledges. He has nonetheless been able to drawhuge crowdsat rallies since his removal from office.
