The big issue behind the recent political changes in Pakistan was the conspiracy of a foreign state. In the latest statement of the army, the newly ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan came under more pressure in the no-confidence vote. Maj. Gen. Babar Iftikhar, director general (DG) of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said on Thursday that the word “conspiracy” was not in the statement issued at the end of last month’s National Security Committee (NSC) meeting.

Imran Khan lost the no-confidence motion brought by the opposition alliance in the National Assembly and was deposed. He claimed that the no-confidence motion was part of a foreign conspiracy. It is linked to a “threat letter” from a foreign state (the United States). Opposition groups in the United States and Pakistan have denied the allegations.
Speaking at a press conference on the just-concluded 69th Formation Commanders Conference, ISPR DG Iftikhar said he could not say what was discussed at the meeting. However, he said the word “conspiracy” was not used.
The ISPR DG further said that the position of military leadership was highlighted at the meeting. Besides, a statement was also given after the meeting. The decision of the meeting is in the statement. He said the Pakistani military was working day and night against such conspiracies. They will not allow the magicians to succeed.
Asked whether the military intelligence agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) was working on diplomatic cables, the military spokesman said the cables sent by Pakistani ambassadors from around the world to the foreign ministry were highly confidential. “We have taken some parts of this message to the ISI department considering the national security concerns,” he said.
Meanwhile, the political parties that came to power after ousting Imran Khan have praised the ISPR DG for clarifying the position of the military in its statements and statements on the political situation.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), tweeted, “ISPR DG’s press conference is like breathing in the open air for democracy.” It is the responsibility of all Pakistanis, not just all institutions, to support democracy, the constitution and the rule of law.
Bilawal Bhutto said, “The solution to all the problems of Pakistan is democracy, democracy and more democracy. If we follow this path, no power in the world will be able to stop Pakistan’s progress.
Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has been sharply reprimanded by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz for using issues like national security to protect her government. He wrote in a tweet: “Now is the time to put you in a quandary for a reprehensible attempt to save your government by playing with national security. Be accountable, don’t run away as always. Because, this time the nation will not give you that opportunity. ‘
Miriam Nawaz added, “You have played a terrible game to retain power. He has used forums like NSC as a field for his own conspiracies. You have fabricated baseless stories, which have never been claimed. ‘
Imran Khan left the National Assembly on April 9 after losing the no-confidence motion brought by the opposition alliance. Leader of the Opposition and PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif was then elected the 23rd Prime Minister of Pakistan. However, lawmakers from Imran’s party boycotted the vote, calling it a “foreign conspiracy” and a vote of no confidence. The country’s military has declared neutrality in the emerging political situation.
