Former Pakistan Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said that good governance could be ensured if the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was used against high-level corruption, money laundering, occupation groups and smuggling.

If the ISI was assigned the task, dollars flight abroad would stop for good, The News quoted Khan as saying while the PTI chief was addressing a gathering of reporters.

He said the judiciary should stand for supremacy of the Constitution in the country.

Khan said the PTI did not dissolve the KP and Punjab assemblies, as it also had to bring its allies around.

He said the PTI and its allies will seek a fresh vote of confidence in the Punjab Assembly long before January 11, 2023.

The PTI chief said he had no doubt that Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi will dissolve the Punjab Assembly, adding that a good player did not play every ball.

The former PM said he had no contacts with the establishment adding that they might hold the next general elections in April, The News reported.

“Elections will have to be held when the two provincial assemblies are dissolved. It’s no issue for us even if the elections get delayed after the dissolution of the two provincial assemblies,” said the PTI chief.

Meanwhile, in a social media post, Khan said: “Unluckily, the rule of law was not allowed in Pakistan. The iron grip of the elite class contributed towards making the institutions and mafias above the law.”
