Should Imran Khan resign? Bajwa tied the time, trying to convince the army failed

Advertisements
Political instability in Pakistan is extreme. A united opposition is expected to allow the Speaker of the National Assembly to table a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan tomorrow. Opposition groups called for the beleagured PM to resign if the speaker rejected his proposal. We would like to inform you that the OIC Foreign Ministers’ Conference here on 22-23 March has also been proposed. If the Speaker’s motion is passed on Monday, Parliament will vote on the no-confidence motion on March 28.

Political pressure is mounting on Prime Minister Imran Khan. Intelligence inputs indicate that four senior Pakistani army generals, including Army Chief General Kamar Javed Bajwa and DG (ISI) Lieutenant General Nadeem Anjum, have asked Imran Khan to step down as Prime Minister after the OIC-FM conference. Even the widely circulated Trump card of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, former army chief General Raheel Sharif, has clearly failed to mediate on behalf of Imran Khan with the army. It is also learned that General Sharif went to Pakistan to meet General Bajwa on the instructions of Imran Khan but could not convince the army chief.

According to reports reaching Delhi, the Pakistan Army is united in its assessment that Imran Khan should resign as continuing political instability is not in Pakistan’s interest. We let you know that Pakistan is already facing a serious economic crisis. The military is also angry at Prime Minister Imran Khan for taking unnecessary pot-shots against the United States and the EU over the Ukraine crisis and for apparently ignoring him and Pakistan in Afghanistan despite Islamabad’s support in the West.

After the OIC summit, Pakistan’s military called on Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign, and opposition leaders stepped up their efforts.

There is talk in the political arena in Islamabad that Prime Minister Imran Khan may also dismiss General Bajwa, who in March 1972 fired Pakistani President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Acting Chief of Army Staff General Gul Hassan Khan and Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Abdul Rahim Khan. . However, this possibility is not important for General Bajwa. The current army chief has distanced himself from politics. He does not want to take revenge on the former Pakistan swing bowler.
