Lahore. Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has said relations with India can only move forward when Prime Minister Narendra Modi restores Kashmir’s special status. The Indian Parliament repealed Article 370 of the Constitution granting special status to Jammu and Kashmir in 2019 and divided the state into two union territories: Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Khan told ‘PTI’ on Tuesday night during a conversation with foreign media at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore, “India has abolished the special status of Kashmir. Now, talks with India can only take place when the administration Modi (led) restore it (special status).

In response to another question about the rule of law, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party leader said: “If there is no rule of law, Pakistan will have no future.” Take India, for example. It advanced thanks to the rule of law.” Hoping that the Judiciary “protects the Constitution.” Elections will be held in these two provinces within 90 days after the assemblies were dissolved last month. Khan was ousted from power by the PMLN in a vote of no confidence.

Khan alleged that the ruling coalition, with the support of its bosses in the military establishment, hatched a conspiracy to oust him from politics. Asked if army chief Gen. Syed Asim Munir was also involved in such efforts, he said: “He won’t be in office for two months and I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt.” Nawaz Sharif wants to disqualify him.

Khan also accused Nawaz Sharif of striking a deal with former army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa during the parliamentary vote on his service extension. Imran Khan said he did not understand how the military establishment could “side with corrupt criminals like Sharif and Zardari.” “There is a clear gulf between the Pakistani army and the people. They are angry with the support of the army to those who plundered this country. Let me tell you that it is very dangerous for the country.
