“Conspiracy is being hatched behind closed door to take my life… I have recorded a video and kept it in a safe place… I have named all those elements involved in the conspiracy in the video,” he said while addressing his supporters in Sialkot on Saturday.
“I knew about it and I got full knowledge about it a few days ago.”
Explaining why he has recorded the video, Imran said, “If something happens to me, I want to let Pakistanis know who was involved inside and outside the country.”
Imran said he has tried to expose in the video the conspirators who had colluded with the “looters” in the country.
The public gathering is part of several rallies being held by the former ruling party following Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman’s ouster from power last month after a no-trust vote in parliament.
Khan took the authorities to task for their alleged efforts to stop his party from staging the rally.
The PTI chairman blamed the fiasco on Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, calling him and his party a bunch of a “cowards”.
Addressing his supporter, he claimed that when in power, his party never stopped his political opponents from holding protests.
“We are the followers of Prophet (PBUH) and we will never bow down to any superpower… we never fear anyone accept Allah.”
Mocking his rivals, Khan said, “Three stooges [Shehbaz, Zardari and Fazlur Rehman] should listen that they cannot come in the way of this Azadi movement.”
“This isn’t politics, but a revolution coming your way,” Imran roared to a charged crowd.
He added that those who were in charge of accountability process did not consider corruption a bad practice and allowed powerful to dodge accountability.
In his today’s speech, the former premier is expected to give next line of action to the supporters in his drive against the incumbent government, which he refuses to accept as a legitimate one.
