LAHORE – Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president Javed Hashmi revealed that during the dharna movement in 2014, Imran Khan had made a deal with the then Chief Justice to come into power.

The senior politician levelled these allegations during Dunya TV programme ‘On the Front’ on Thursday.

Hashmi claimed that the PTI chairman had made a deal with the then Chief Justice Nasir–ul–Mulk. However, he chose not to mention former CJ Nasir–ul–Mulk’s name.

The elderly politician disclosed the details of the alleged deal, claiming that martial law would have been imposed for 90 days during which elections would have been held. He further claimed that the elections would be engineered in order to enable PTI to emerge as the victor.

Javed said that this information had been disclosed to him by Imran Khan himself, who had told him all about the alleged deal in a one-on-one meeting.

He parted ways from PTI during the party’s protest movement to topple the Nawaz-led government in 2014.
