Chairman Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan said that the establishment is a reality and is above the law.Talking to journalists in Lahore, Imran Khan said that the situation in the country will only improve when the establishment works for the supremacy of law and if there is an attempt to reduce their mandate in Punjab, they will resist. He hoped that the current army chief will conduct a transparent election.

He said “that I am seeing political engineering in the country at the moment, they are bringing MQM together and sending BAP to PPP, seats to PPP in South Punjab and JUI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Here they are telling everyone to go to PML-G, they put a cross on Imran Khan, they have not learned any lesson from history, political engineering has sunk the ship”.

He further said that he would never sit in a weak government and stated  “if I knew earlier that the establishment would do this to me, then I would never have taken the government. I thought that the interests of the establishment and mine are the same. I thought that our establishment also has the same interest”.He said that the IMF has told Sri Lanka to cut its army in half, “when you are weak the lenders give orders, this has already started in Sri Lanka and Egypt”.
