Khan says, “I had already learned that there was a plan in place to kill me somewhere between Wazirabad and Gujrat”.
Says Rana Sanaullah, Shehbaz Sharif, and an army major planned to assassinate him.
Khan says once he regains his health, he would continue his long march towards Islamabad.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan eventually made the decision to speak out after being shot and hurt in an attempt on his life while perched on a container during his lengthy march and claiming that he was aware of the impending danger beforehand.
“I had already learned that there was a plan in place to kill me somewhere between Wazirabad and Gujrat,” Khan said as he spoke during a televised address at the Shaukat Khanum Hospital in Lahore, where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.
Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan on Friday accused his successor of involvement in a plot to kill him as he recovered in hospital from gunshot wounds following an assassination attempt.
Khan began his speech by criticizing the current administration and bemoaning the fact that his administration was overthrown by a resolution of no confidence.
“The government could have never lost the no-trust move, but they [the coalition leaders] used money to become successful,” he said, adding that the PTI-led government also had the financial means to engage in horse trading but it refrained from doing so.
He said that the opposition staged three lengthy marches against the government while the PTI was in control, but “we didn’t stop anyone.”

Imran Khan told reporters that Shehbaz Sharif, who replaced him as premier following a vote of no confidence in April, masterminded the attack along with Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and a senior army commander.
