LAHORE: Imran Khan, chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former prime minister, made it clear on Friday that he is not in contact with the establishment "for now."

Khan stated the following to senior journalists at his Lahore residence in Zaman Park: The establishment is a fact, and only it can uphold the rule of law," he continued.

"I used to keep in contact with [former head of armed force staff General Qamar Javed] Bajwa, notwithstanding, he generally requested that I think in a specific bearing," he said in accordance with his cases that the ex-COAS generally encouraged him to zero in on economy rather than his resistance groups and their responsibility.

Imran Khan, who was taken out from influence through a no-certainty vote in the Public Gathering in April, said that the individual holding the top office in the military is "everything", guaranteeing that Gen Bajwa called then-resistance pioneer Shehbaz Sharif while he was in prison by virtue of his tax evasion case to ask about his prosperity.

He inquired, "What is the fault of other prisoners if [Gen] Bajwa wants to inquire about Shehbaz while he is in custody?"

In light of an inquiry with respect to the continuous political emergency in Punjab and the Pakistan Popularity based Development drove government's choice to hold general decisions according to plan, the PTI boss said the alliance government needs to postpone general races.

He asserted, "Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari are restraining from entering general elections as they are afraid of me."

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) stated last week that it would be unable to hold the general elections on time if the final digital data from the seventh census were not provided to the organization by March 31 of the following year. The authority in charge of organizing the polls had previously stated that the country would likely hold its subsequent elections in October 2023.

However, the former prime minister went on to say that elections cannot be further postponed due to the current economic climate.

"In the event that the comparative condition of the economy endures, the nation will default by February or Walk," Khan said criticizing the occupant government for "obliterating the flourishing economy" that he guarantees the PTI system had abandoned.
