There is still political upheaval in Pakistan. On May 9, when Pakistan’s former PM and PTI chief Imran Khan was arrested, Pakistan was on fire. PTI supporters torched vehicles. Fire broke out in many areas. The roads of Pakistan were full of his supporters. An angry mob attacked the army headquarters in Rawalpindi. There was also arson at the military airbase.
Its court granted bail to Imran Khan. Even after this, the army and the police made many allegations against Imran Khan. His house was searched. A case was registered under the Army Act. Now his close friends are leaving the support of Imran Khan. His party is on the verge of ending. But why so? When Imran needs his leaders the most, why is he leaving them?
Fawad Chaudhary also left
Shireen Mazari, who was the Human Rights Minister in the Imran government, was considered special to Khan. He retired from political life itself. Fawad Chaudhary, who justified every right and wrong of Imran, also distanced himself from Imran Khan a day ago. There is a long list of such names. Many leaders from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Punjab, Sindh province have severed ties with the PTI chief. The main reason behind this is their future. Shireen Mazari was arrested four times by the Pakistan Police on 12 May. After this his health deteriorated. Leaving the party, Shireen said that she now wants to focus on her family. He also said that the violence that took place on 9 and 10 May broke his heart.
Political future of Imran Khan
The reality is that all the leaders are now seeing the future of Imran Khan. They feel that action will be taken under the Army Act and what will happen if Imran Khan is jailed. Gradually the Government of Pakistan will take action against them. They will also be put in jail. Imran Khan was arrested in connection with the Qadri Trust, but dozens of cases are also registered against him. Not only this, the screws are being tightened on his close ones as well. Imran Khan’s political future hangs in the balance. The party is on the verge of collapse. Who rides in a sinking ship? The condition of Imran Khan’s party is also looking similar. But no one is ready to support them. Pakistan government, army and ISI are against Imran.
Imran Khan’s attempt to change the custom
It has been a custom of Pakistan for decades. Here, so to speak, the government is formed, but the major decisions of the government are taken by the army. Imran Khan wanted to change this custom. The result was that former army chief Bajwa and Imran, who were once special to each other, became enemies. Both had to give up their respective thrones. Even if Shireez Mazari is saying that she is leaving the party because of violence on symbols like Army Headquarters, Parliament and Supreme Court, but the truth is that now she is also afraid of Imran Khan’s condition.
Till now 32 leaders left the party
According to Pakistan newspaper Dawn, 32 leaders have left together so far. He cited violence as the reason behind leaving the party. Which happened after Imran Khan was arrested. All the leaders told this as the reason behind leaving the party. But the reality is different from this. In reality everyone is facing the threat of their future. They are feeling that they will also be in the same condition as Imran Khan. Cases will be filed against them too, then they will be sent to jail. This will affect their political, social and family life. This is the main reason why PTI leaders are leaving the party. Below is the list of those who have left the party till now.
