Ever since Imran Khan’s chair has been threatened in Pakistan, he has started building praises for India. Earlier on March 27, while addressing a large public meeting in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, he praised India for pursuing an independent foreign policy. Then on April 8, in his message to the people of Pakistan, he once again openly praised India’s foreign policy.
Addressing the nation, Imran Khan said that no country in the world has the courage to tell India what its policy should be towards Russia. India is a dedicated community, no superpower has the capacity to do anything against India. We have bad relations because of RSS and Kashmir, but I want the same for our people.
But the opposition leaders are not liking the praise of India from Imran Khan’s mouth. Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, has sharply criticized Imran Khan for praising India. Maryam Nawaz Sharif tweeted, ‘Someone should tell this person who is going crazy seeing the chair moving that his own party is going to remove him from power. No one else is doing it. If you like India so much then leave Pakistan and move there.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif further said, “Whoever praises India should know that there have been 27 no-confidence motions against various Prime Ministers by the opposition. But no one has compromised with the Constitution, democracy and its principles. Atal Bihari Vajpayee had lost power by one vote, but he did not mortgage his country and its constitution like you.
Significantly, on 7 April, the Supreme Court of Pakistan rejected the no-confidence motion moved by Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Khan Suri against Prime Minister Imran Khan without voting and without the approval of President Arif Alvi. Parliament was declared unconstitutional on the recommendation of The Supreme Court had on April 9 decided to convene a special session to vote on the reconstitution of Pakistan’s National Assembly and the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the Imran Khan government.
