Umpire gave no ball: Imran Khan reacts to loss of bat from PTI

In an informal discussion with journalists at Adiala Jail, Khan claimed that he was imprisoned as part of the "London Plan," asserting that there were efforts to undermine and eliminate the PTI based on a covert agreement.

Reacting to the recent Supreme Court (SC) decision that stripped the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of its electoral symbol, the bat, just days before the general elections, the party’s founder, Imran Khan, likened the situation to an “umpire giving a no-ball.”

In an informal discussion with journalists at Adiala Jail, Khan claimed that he was imprisoned as part of the “London Plan,” asserting that there were efforts to undermine and eliminate the PTI based on a covert agreement.

Khan had previously asserted that a secret “agreement” was made in London, outlining his imprisonment to suppress his party while giving a clean chit to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader, Nawaz Sharif. In his latest criticism, Khan accused Nawaz Sharif of always playing matches with umpires of his choice, claiming that the recent SC verdict resulted in giving Nawaz a favorable decision.

Discussing the alleged implementation of the plot, Khan highlighted that all cases against Nawaz Sharif had been concluded. He also mentioned that Nawaz, his daughter Maryam Nawaz, and Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari had acquired bulletproof vehicles from the ToshaKhana, and no one held them accountable for it. Khan predicted that something unfavorable would happen to them and demanded an open trial for the cipher case to reveal the facts.

Meanwhile, PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi stated that his party’s candidates would participate in the upcoming elections as independent candidates. He acknowledged the SC’s decision and emphasized that the PTI’s demand was for free and fair elections in the country.
