Plot against PM: Security agencies ‘have not found credible evidence’
April 5, 2022 09:46 PM
The security agencies have not found credible evidence to confirm PM Imran Khan's allegation of a foreign conspiracy, 24NewsHD TV Channel reported on Tuesday.
Imran Khan claimed last month that foreign elements were behind the no-confidence motion brought to the parliament by the joint opposition. “Some of our own people are being used for the purpose too,” the premier told a public gathering at Parade Ground.
However, an official said on the condition of anonymity that the security agencies did not come to the PM’s conclusion and it was conveyed to the premier. The official was among the participants of the meeting.
The opposition lawmakers moved the no-confidence motion in a bid to oust the PM. But National Assembly speaker swiftly blocked the motion, saying there was a "clear nexus" with a foreign state to bring about a change of government.
Imran Khan accused the opposition of colluding with foreign powers and said he was the target of a US-led conspiracy to remove him because of his refusal to stand with them on issues against Russia and China. The US has responded by saying there was "no truth" to these allegations.
