I was warned of Gen Bajwa's plot to overthrow my government by the ruler of a Gulf country: Imran Khan

Imran Khan said on Monday, a year after he was ousted from his position as prime minister of Pakistan, that the ruler of a Gulf nation had warned him that the then-Army chief, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, was planning to overthrow his government.

A no-confidence motion introduced in Parliament by opposition parties led by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) led to Khan's ouster as Pakistan's prime minister in April of that same year, which also resulted in the downfall of his government.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Khan referred to the PML-N-led coalition's one-year performance as the worst in the nation's history in a white paper published on Sunday.

"Before the no-confidence motion against me was put forth in April of last year, the ruler of a country in the Gulf informed me that my Army chief, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, was conspiring against my government to obtain his extension (from the PML-N and its allies)." "Khan asserted that Bajwa was the mastermind behind this conspiracy.

He criticized Bajwa for destroying Pakistan solely for his extension, which he was unable to obtain in spite of a promise made by the prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif.
