WASHINGTON has made Pakistan a slave without invading it, ousted prime minister Imran Khan told a mass rally on Sunday as he vowed the people would never accept an “imported government.”
He has spoken at events across the country since he was removed from power after a vote of no-confidence last month which he insists was a US-backed coup triggered by his independent foreign policy.
Before the vote he detailed an alleged plot to kill him and accused the US embassy in Pakistan of issuing threats against him unless he changed course and adopted more Washington-friendly policies.
Mr Khan, who retains mass popular support, has branded the new government led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif “traitors and corrupt rulers” imposed on the people of Pakistan by external forces.
“The US has made Pakistan a slave without having to invade it. The people of Pakistan will never accept the imported government,” he told a rally in Faisalabad on Sunday.
Hundreds of thousands turned out to greet Mr Khan in a show of mass support.
