ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Sunday said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s plan is to eradicate “Imrani Fitna” with the power of vote.
Talking to a private news channel he said that the Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Niazi was responsible for the current political instability and chaos that has spread in the country at the moment, while the responsibility of whatever result will be on him alone.
“From 2014 till today, Imran was on the same agenda that the country would suffer chaos”, he added.
Minister said that Imran Khan took all unconstitutional measures to end the political existence of PML-N during his regime, because according to him, the biggest problem of Pakistan was the opposition and every person who was disagreed with him.
Keeping in view the seriousness of the internal country’s affairs, he said in response to an anchor’s question, “Point of No Return”, that we invited Imran to the Charter of Economy, but we were vilified in return. PTI chief refuses to accept differences of opinion, while he has turned politics into enmity,” he added.
On the question about Azhar Mashwani, he said that political propaganda is being done by Imran Khan on this issue.
He questioned regarding the transparency in elections if held in phases, “No one would believe in the results of elections and this would further create another political crisis”, he concluded.
A day earlier a, in an interview with PNN News, Sanaullah said: “In my opinion, Imran Khan does not believe in democracy and democratic traditions. He does not believe in having a peaceful political environment in this country. He has turned politics into enmity.
“He considers us his enemies while we [previously] used to think of him as our political rival, but with time it has come to a point where [we also think] that he is our enemy,” the minister said.
“Democratic traditions, timely elections, and rights and wrongs are a part of democracy and politics but not during an enmity,” the interior minister added. “He (Imran) says that we want to murder him so if [he says] we want to murder him, then he also wants to murder us.
“Either he or us will get murdered. He has now taken the country’s politics to a point where only one of the two can remain.”
Sanaullah said that if his party’s entire existence was in jeopardy, then they would go to any length, explaining that in those circumstances it would become irrelevant to think “what can or cannot be done, if something is democratic or not, if something is principled or not.”
When the interviewer pointed out that such remarks could result in anarchy, Sanaullah said: “Anarchy already prevails. What else is there to anarchy.”
When asked if there was a way out and whether Imran’s arrest could ease the hostilities, the interior minister said the matter had escalated to a point of no return. “Either their politics will end or ours will.”
