Knew about assassination plot beforehand: Imran Khan


LAHORE: After being shot and injured in an assassination attempt while standing atop a container during his long march, PTI Chairman Imran Khan finally decided to break his silence and said that he had learned about the looming danger beforehand. “I had already learned that there was a plan in place to kill me somewhere between Wazirabad and Gujrat,” Khan said as he spoke during a televised address at the Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Lahore, where he is receiving treatment for his injuries. At the beginning of his address, Khan started berating the incumbent government and lamented how his government was ousted through a motion of no-confidence.  “The government could have never lost the no-trust move, but they [the coalition leaders] used money to become successful,” he said, adding that the PTI-led government also had the financial means to engage in horse trading but it refrained from doing so. He said that when the PTI was in power, the then-opposition took out three long marches against the government but “we didn’t stop anyone.”  “During the last long march, police, upon the coalition government’s orders, barged into people’s houses at 3am and tortured people. They put them behind bars and tear-gassed peaceful protests in Islamabad.”
