Early elections a good idea for the country: PM 

Islamabad, April 01, 2022 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the government will go for early elections if he remains successful in defeating the no-confidence motion against him in the National Assembly. In an interview on Friday evening, he said going for early elections is a good idea and will be good for the country. He said that he will fight till the last ball instead of opting to resign. Responding to another question, Imran Khan said he wants a foreign policy aimed at protecting rights of the people of Pakistan and enhancing respect of the Green Passport.

He said Pakistan’s foreign policy should be based on having cordial relations with all the countries, including Russia, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and the Middle East. The Prime Minister said Pakistan can be a partner in peace and not in a conflict.

Giving example of India for pursuing an independent foreign policy and remaining non-aligned to any bloc, he said New Delhi reap benefits of this policy from all sides. Imran Khan said former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto pursued an independent foreign policy, but unfortunately, some internal elements in collaboration with the international forces, hatched a conspiracy against him.

The Prime Minister said what an irony it is that a foreign country is threatening Pakistan that Islamabad will have to face serious consequences if Imran Khan successfully sails through the no-confidence motion. He said some politicians, anchorpersons, and journalists have been meeting with foreign diplomats in Pakistan to hatch a conspiracy to dislodge his government.
