Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder Imran Khan said on Tuesday that he has dictated a letter for the International Monetary Fund that should be sent soon. He also said that President Arif Alvi had been right not to tummon the National Assembly to session in absence of reserved seats.

Speaking to reporters informally after a court hearing in Adiala Jail on Tuesday, Khan said that he is not allowed to send anything out of jail. He added that he has dictated the letter to his party members and it should be sent to the IMF on Tuesday.

Responding to statements from opposing parties that called the letter to IMF an act of treason, Khan said that the same parties complaining today had opposed legislation to get Pakistan out of FATF’s grey list. He added that PPP and PMLN had asked for relief in their cases in exchange for support for the legislation.

Khan said that the letter would tell the IMF that there can be no economic stability without economic stability.

He added that all economic experts were in agreement that it is not sustainable to run the country on borrowed money.

The former prime minister said that it had been clear that elections had been rigged in the country. He said that the PMLN had only won 20 seats in reality but was preparing to form government.

He reiterated his call for the chief election commissioner to resign adding that the ECP had deprived the party of level playing field in the election and was still busy in rigging.

Khan said that the election had proven to be a funeral for the Sharif family. He also said that the party was preparing to call another protest on Saturday.

Asked about joining hands with Maulana Fazal ur Rehman and Mahmood Achakzai, he said that PTI was trying to bring together all parties who believed elections have been rigged.
