Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari Saturday slammed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and said that the ex-prime minister must be careful about what he says as Bushra Bibi’s dreams would not hold in court.
Bilawal lambasted the PTI chief after the former accused his father, PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, of hatching a plot to assassinate him with the help of terrorist organisations.
“Imran must realize every time his wife has a dream he cannot just come on tv & make accusations about people. Her dreams won’t stand up in court,” the minister said in a series of tweets.
Bilawal claimed that Khan’s allegations had increased the threat to him and his family, especially given their history.
“After terrorist outfits called [me] and my party out by name in direct threats, Imran has now made false accusations against my father former president Asif Zardari.”
“These statements increase threats to my father, my family & my part[y]. We take them seriously given our history,” the foreign minister said.
Terming the accusations of the PTI chief “dangerous,” he said that PPP was exploring legal responses to Khan’s most recent accusations.
“We are exploring legal response to Imran latest defamatory and dangerous accusations. In the past, he threatened my father that he was ‘in the crosshairs of his gun’.”
“He & his associates’ history as both sympathizers & facilitators of terrorists are well documented,” the foreign minister said.
It should be noted that in a virtual press conference on Friday Khan claimed four people orchestrated a plan “behind closed doors” to assassinate him.
