Pakistan’s deposed Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday appealed to overseas Pakistanis to donate money to his Pakistani Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party to overthrow the “foreign-backed” government of Shehbaz Sharif.
Ironically, Khan has asked overseas Pakistanis to donate to a party that blames America for overthrowing its government in Pakistan.
In his video message on Twitter, he informed the overseas Pakistanis about the website namanzoor.com which collects donations from them to overthrow the government of Shehbaz Sharif and hold new elections.

He called the campaign “Haqiqi-Azadi” and said the “corrupt government” was being forced on Pakistan’s 22 crore population.
Khan said it is the right of Pakistani citizens to decide who will rule their country – either the PTI party or the ‘corrupt Sharif family’ who have been in prison for three years fighting corruption charges.
The former Pakistani prime minister also criticized the US for colluding with Shehbaz Sharif, whose government was imposed on the Pakistani people by a ‘foreign conspiracy’.
Khan claimed that with the help of the US, a corrupt government has overtaken Pakistan and so he wants the country to hold new elections where Pakistani citizens can decide their future.
Days before the vote on no confidence in his government, former Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed the resolution against him was part of a “foreign conspiracy” hatched in the US, producing an alleged “letter of threat” he had received from Pakistani embassy in the United States. US as proof.
According to the “letter of threatening”, a diplomatic telegram received from Pakistani Ambassador to the US Asad Majeed, US Deputy Secretary of State for Affairs in South and Central Asia Donald Lu had warned the Pakistani Ambassador that continuing Imran Khan would affect bilateral relations. The US is said to be annoyed with Imran because of his “independent foreign policy” and the visit to Moscow.
