Background of Letter Gate:
It is to be noted that in his address to a public meeting in Islamabad on March 27, Prime Minister Imran Khan had waved a letter and said that an attempt was being made to change the government with the help of money from outside the country. There is a letter that proves this.
Then on March 31, in his address to the nation, Prime Minister Imran Khan mentioned the country of the letter and mentioned the name ‘America’ and then stopped when he realized the mistake and said that no, the name of the country from outside means outside of any other country. However, he later said that the letter was sent by his ambassador to the United States, but that it contained a message from the United States.
The Prime Minister said, “This is an official document. Our ambassadors were taking note of the meeting in which it was said that if Imran Khan remains the Prime Minister, our relations with you will deteriorate and you will face difficulties.” We will have to face, someone from abroad is threatening us and there is no reason, just one thing that Imran Khan decided to go to Russia alone.
“The decision to go to Russia was made in consultation with the Foreign Office and the military leadership. Our ambassador is telling them that it was done in consultation. He said no, it was only because of Imran Khan.” As far as he is concerned, our relations cannot be good. In fact, he is saying that we have no problem with Imran’s replacement.
Later, justifying the same letter, the Deputy Speaker National Assembly did not vote on the no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister on April 3 and rejected the no-confidence motion as a conspiracy of enemies of the country.
