During his speech, Federal Minister Ayaz Sadiq said Imran Khan had said “great things” in his lust for power which he feared would harm Pakistan in the future, Samaa TV reported. He said that the armed forces had sacrificed many lives in the war against terrorism. The person who said Pakistan would be disintegrated into three parts… no idea who he might have given the country’s secrets to, Sadiq said. He said that Imran Khan talks about the nuclear program which was started by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and ended by Nawaz Sharif. Sadiq said, It looks like he [Imran Khan] has also been implicated in maps showing disintegrating Pakistan, as comments about the country breaking up are his endorsement. We cherish our political affiliation and our parties, but nothing is dearer than Islam and Pakistan, he added. The minister said that Imran Khan has been saying nonsense since the day he lost power. The minister also said lawmakers who did not sign the resolution would be seen as siding with Imran Khan on his statement.
