Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, might be arrested again after his protective bail expired. In a tweet, Khan said that this might be his last tweet before his next arrest. He also encouraged his supporters to go to Zaman Park. However, the Interior Minister of Pakistan, Rana Sanaullah, warned that the relief Imran Khan got from the Supreme Court will not last long.
The Punjab police gave the PTI leadership 24 hours to hand over 30-40 terrorists who are hiding in Zaman Park. The Interim Punjab Government also gave a 24-hour ultimatum to Khan’s party to hand over the miscreants to the government. If they didn’t comply, the police would conduct an operation in the Zaman Park residence.
After the drama that unfolded on Wednesday night, the Punjab police seemed to have backed off from Imran Khan’s residence. PTI supporters gathered outside Zaman Park, showing their support for Imran Khan. He said that he would stay in Pakistan until his last breath and that there is no question of him leaving the country.
The arrest of Imran Khan and the violence that followed last week has worsened political instability in Pakistan. The country is also facing its worst-ever economic crisis, with a long delay in securing IMF funding critical to avert a balance of payment crisis.
