Imran to receive a legal notice from PPP on claims against Zardari

Following Imran Khan's accusation that Asif Zardari, the co-chairman of the PPP, was behind a fresh plot to assassinate him, PPP leaders announced intentions to issue a legal notice to the PTI chairman.

Following Imran Khan’s assertion that PPP co-chair Asif Ali Zardari was involved in hatching a new assassination plot against him, the Pakistan People’s Party announced preparations to issue a legal notice to the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan.

PPP leaders Farhatullah Babar, Nayyar Bukhari, and Qamar Zaman Kaira spoke to the media and criticised Imran for his claims. The PPP members said that the former premier had “lost his mind” and that the party will issue a legal notice requesting that he retract his claims.

According to Bukhari, the PPP insisted that Imran’s claims were “baseless and a lie.”

“In terms of his political philosophy and temperament, Imran Khan has died politically.” He added that Imran was suffering from despair and fear and that during his panic, he had placed the blame on many organisations, including the ruling class, the Pakistani Election Commission, and the former chief of the army staff.

Imran Khan called the alleged conspiracy “Plan-C” on Friday while conducting a news conference from his Zaman Park home in Lahore via video link. He accused Zardari of funding a terrorist group to carry out the murder attempt on his life.

“Now that they have developed a Plan C, Asif Zardari is responsible for it. He has a lot of corrupt funds that he steals from the government of Sindh and uses to influence elections.” Imran further claimed that Zardari had donated money to a terrorist organisation and that he was being helped by individuals from strong organisations.

He continued, “This has been decided on three fronts, and they will move swiftly.” He continued, “I’m telling you this so that if something happens to me, the country will know who was responsible and would never forgive them.

Imran Khan further asserted that he was the target of a plot to have him killed under “Plan-B” in the name of religious extremism, referring to the shooting that occurred in Wazirabad in November of last year. They came very close to succeeding in their plan to kill me, but they are now pursuing Plan-C, he continued.
