Islamabad. Former Pakistan Army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa has made a big claim about former Prime Minister Imran Khan. This claim of Bajwa has created a sensation in the political circles of Pakistan. Bajwa has claimed that if Imran Khan had remained the Prime Minister, the existence of Pakistan would have been in danger. Bajwa has said that Imran Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf party is a threat to the country. Former Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa said this to Pakistani journalist Javed Chaudhary. An excerpt of the conversation between these two has been published in the Express News newspaper. Not only this, Bajwa also made many serious allegations against Imran.

Qamar Javed Bajwa said, “Imran Khan, while Prime Minister, had used a very objectionable word in Punjabi regarding Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during a cabinet meeting.” Bajwa told that he was aware of this behavior of Imran. A minister from Pakistan had given it to the Saudi ambassador in Islamabad, although Bajwa did not reveal the name of the minister. Javed Chowdhary has mentioned this conversation with Bajwa in his weekly column.

He told that there was a time when Imran Khan was the Prime Minister when his relations with the Saudi Prince became very good. Not only this, Crown Prince Salman had also given a hotline number to Imran Khan on which he could talk to him anytime other than formally, but after this incident, the Saudi Prince had blocked Imran Khan's number as well.

Imran was about to resign after the no-confidence motion

In this discussion, Chaudhary asked Bajwa whether he had stopped Imran Khan from resigning from Parliament after the no-confidence motion was passed in April last year? To this Bajwa replied in the affirmative. Bajwa told Imran that you have lost only one match, the whole series is still pending. However, Bajwa categorically denied the allegations of toppling Imran Khan's government.

Bajwa also claimed that he had advised Imran Khan not to resign from the National Assembly. For this, he used the example of Khaleda Zia in Bangladesh, who suffered a lot politically after resigning from Parliament. However, Imran did not give any answer to his words.

When Bajwa was asked a question related to toppling Imran Khan's government, he said that his only crime was that he did not save the government. Bajwa said that Imran wanted him to save his government. On this, when Bajwa was asked why he did not do this, he said that he did it for the good of the country. Bajwa said, "Had I seen my own advantage, I would have supported Khan and retired with honour, but I considered the good of the country more important than my respect."
