- PAK PM Imran Khan’s address to the nation
- Said- I will not let these traitors sit in peace
- Pakistan’s PM is under pressure to resign
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed his country on Thursday. In his address to Pakistan, he said, ‘Yousaf Raza Gillani won the Senate on the basis of money. I will take the vote of confidence on 6th March. If I lose, I will sit in the opposition. It doesn’t matter in my life, whether I sit in the opposition or get out of the assembly, but I will not leave those who are sitting with Pakistan’s money. I will take people out on the streets. Khan criticized the Grand Alliance for making fun of democracy and said that he will not spare the corrupt.
Imran Khan delivered this address ahead of a trust vote to uphold the legitimacy of his government in the wake of the defeat of Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Sheikh in the Senate elections. Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate and former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani defeated Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Sheikh in a major blow to Prime Minister Khan, who had campaigned personally for his cabinet colleague. The PDM is an 11-party coalition formed in September last year to topple Khan’s government.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, 68, said, ‘I will seek the trust vote after Saturday. I will ask my members to show that they have faith in me. If they say they have no confidence, I will sit on the opposition bench. If I am out of government, I will go to the people and ask them to continue their struggle for the country. I will not let these traitors (who have looted the country) sit in peace. I call them traitors because they are robbers.
