Has Imran Khan got another surprise?

Khan says he would not accept any ‘lollipop,’ demands immediate general elections in the country.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan has vowed to surprise his political opponents soon, ARY News reported.

Khan has said he will intensify his movement against his political opponents. ARY quoted him saying, “Will politically fight against opponents at every forum.”

“We will continue our political movement under the boundaries of the land of the law.”

In response to a question, the PTI chairman said he would not accept any ‘lollipop,’ and demanded immediate general elections in the country.

The former premier had also tasked the former SAPM on parliamentary affairs, Babar Awan, to see legal matters related to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

During a meeting in Bani Gala, Babar Awan and PTI Chairman discussed Pakistan’s political situation and legal and constitutional matters.

According to ARY, sources privy to the development said the ousted prime minister again expressed his reservations about the ECP. He reportedly warned the institution to refrain from becoming a “wing” of a political party.

Khan’s statement comes after disgruntled PTI leader Hamid Khan and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Sherani group (JUI) formed an alliance with PTI and joined Imran Khan to fight against the “puppets of the imperialist powers.”

In an interview after the reunion, Hamid Khan said Imran Khan admitted that the former’s stance against the establishment’s political role was true and that he had misjudged Jehangir Tareen and Aleem Khan, which caused a loss to the PTI.

According to sources, it happened when the head of JUI Sherani Group, Maulana Mohammad Khan Sherani, and a 25-member delegation met PTI Chairman Imran Khan at KP House in Islamabad.

Maulana Sherani, while speaking at the occasion, said that the struggle against Islamophobia is the common goal of both parties.

Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani served as a member of the National Assembly up till 2018; he has also served as the Chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII). Maulana Sheraani had parted ways with JUI-F in 2020 over a difference in socio-political views.
