Refer to the Military Establishment
Imran Khan, a former prime minister, accused the “neutrals” on Sunday, using the phrase to refer to the military establishment.
He claimed that according to “information he had from insiders,” they were the ones behind the continuing crackdown on the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).
Speaking at a political gathering in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh, the PTI chairman declared that he had begun the journey to bring about “true freedom” for the nation with this gathering and that he would not stop until he had accomplished his objective.
PTI Members A Thrashing
Mr. Khan questioned if the “neutrals were actually neutral” and added, “On May 25, when the police used violence against us, I was told by insiders that the police were instructed from above, which suggests that neutrals pressurised them to give PTI members a thrashing.”
The PTI chairman claimed that the chief election commission[er] is making every decision against us on the disqualification case brought against him by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). I learned from inside sources that the CEC was under pressure from above and was not acting independently.

Orders From Behind
Shahbaz Gill, who was Mr. Khan’s assistant, was allegedly tortured as a result of “orders from behind,” according to the police, who denied any involvement. “They [the police] are also accusing you… You are held accountable for anything bad that occurs in Pakistan,” the PTI leader continued.
The former prime minister declared that he wanted to know whether the ruling elite “were neutral or not.”
In addition, Mr. Khan claimed that the government was intimidating guests to his Banigala property in Islamabad and claimed that those who came to meet him had “got calls from the intelligence agencies.”
“I would like to know if you are neutral or not. Will the country stop seeing these guys [the PDM government] to be thieves if you stand with them?” he questioned. Mr. Khan claimed that Mr. Y had arrived in Islamabad. He alleged that the government wants to get rid of him by locking him up and suppressing the PTI and said, “I know what their goal is.”
Imran Khan claimed that PTI was the “largest party at the federal level” and that any efforts to split the party would be detrimental to the nation. Political parties, according to him, are what hold the nation together.
The former premier’s speech’s first half was devoted to discussing his removal from office. He asserted that his removal was caused by his desire to implement an independent foreign policy.
