Buoyed by the opposition’s allegations about Pakistan’s politics and the military’s interference in elections, Prime Minister Imran Khan has clarified that the army is a government body that works under him.
The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a coalition of 11 opposition parties in Pakistan, has been alleging military intervention in politics by organizing rallies against Khan ever since its formation in September.
Let us tell you that the PDM has been accusing the Pak Army of rigging the election of 2018 as a ‘puppet’ prime minister in the country. The army that ruled Pakistan for a long time has had influence in matters of security and foreign policy. However, the army has denied interfering in the country’s politics. Khan has also denied this charge. In such a situation, Imran Khan has once again given his clarification in the midst of opposition attacks.
In an interview to a TV channel, he dismissed allegations that he did not have actual rights. He said that Pakistan’s military is a government body that works under them. Let us know that on Monday, the opposition parties had signed the Lahore Declaration saying that the army influenced the mandate in the 2018 elections and has brought an incompetent government in the country.
