Imran Khan insists that establishment gave him three options

Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has once again insisted that it was the establishment that gave him three options.

He was talking to media persons at his Bani Gala residence.

Before the voting on no-confidence motion, the establishment gave me three options, said Imran Khan adding that he agreed to early election option.

His statement comes days after Director General ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said Imran Khan had requested the military to intervene and help find a solution to the political crisis and some possible solutions were discussed including the possibility that Khan steps down, but no option was given by the military.

He was responding to the question that the military had given three options to Imran Khan as the PTI leader had claimed.

Shireen Mazari, who was federal minister for Human Rights in Imran Khan’s cabinet, has also claimed that it was the army that presented three options to then PM Imran Khan.


Imran Khan said that the army is very important for the country and he doesn’t want to say anything that might hurt the country.

Imran Khan revealed that he had called Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa before embarking on Russia visit. General Bajwa agreed that we should visit Russia, he said.

This was also admitted by the DG ISPR in his Thursday presser. General Iftikhar said the military was onboard on the then prime minister’s Moscow visit and supported it, though when the visit was being planned no one could imagine that Russia would invade Ukraine the day Imran Khan was in Moscow.
