Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Vice-President Fawad Chaudhry said that in the no-confidence motion party chief Imran Khan, it was actually the PTI versus the military; otherwise, stable governments are not toppled the way the PTI rule was wrapped up.

Khan was removed from premiership through a vote of no-confidence in the National Assembly in April last year by an alliance of 13 political parties — the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) helmed by JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman.

Speaking on BBC programme ‘HARDtalk‘, Fawad said that everyone knew who controlled these allied parties and from whom they were taking directions.

He stressed that everyone knows that the establishment controls political parties. However, politics should have been left to politicians alone, he said. According to Imran Khan, General (retd) Qamar Bajwa was involved in overthrowing the PTI government, Fawad said.
