Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), bemoaned the coalition government’s 10 months of fascist rule on Friday as his party declined to attend a meeting of the top committee that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had summoned.
Imran tweeted that he will continue to oppose the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) administration and that it was an imported one that had been installed via deceit and horse trading.
“How can Shehbaz Sharif be so shameless given his government’s destruction in 10 months of our economy and democracy with brazen fascism, end of fundamental rights and rule of law; and allowing terrorism to spread under his watch?” read the tweet.

The tweet included a brief summary of the political persecution the PTI and its allies claim they experienced under the previous administration, including the arrest and alleged torture of leaders like Shahbaz Gill and Azam Swati in addition to the ‘murder’ of journalist Arshad Sharif and an alleged attempt on Imran’s life.
The tweet was sent out following the PTI’s rejection of a request from Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to speak at the top committee’s hearing on the Peshawar mosque tragedy.
