  • Security establishment also asked political leadership to furnish evidence if they have any against foreign conspiracy.
  • PM had said "plotting and planning was being carried out to influence foreign policy of Pakistan from outside".
  • On March 27, PM Imran revealed "foreign elements" were involved in attempts to topple his govt.

ISLAMABAD: PM Imran Khan has been alleging that the no-confidence motion that was tabled against him by the Opposition in the National Assembly has been a "foreign conspiracy" to dislodge his government.

Sources, however, have told Geo News anchor Hamid Mir that the security establishment had conveyed to the premier that "no such evidence of the conspiracy has been found."

On March 27 in a public rally, PM Imran revealed that "foreign elements" are involved in the attempts to topple his government and said, "some of our own people" are being used in this regard.

The premier, while flashing a letter before the public, said that he has "written evidence" that "money has been pouring in from abroad," while "some of our people are being used to topple the government."

He said that for months, "plotting and planning is being carried out to influence the foreign policy of Pakistan from outside".

However, Mir said during Geo News' programme Naya Pakistan that the PM keeps on addressing the media, the public and his party and even tried to sell the alleged letter to the security establishment.

However, sources told the journalists that the establishment, in return, conveyed to the government that no evidence of any foreign government sponsoring the no-confidence motion exists and asked the political leadership to "furnish the evidence if they have any."

The development came after the National Security Committee (NSC) Thursday decided to issue a strong demarche to the country whose official communicated the "threat" a day after premier Imran Khan shared the 'threat letter' with military leadership and the federal cabinet.
