In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we take a look at the impact of a report published in a British newspaper that alleged Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had been introduced to US Ambassador Cameron Munter by the Director General of Pakistan’s powerful intelligence agency, Lt General Shuja Ahmed Pasha.
Gibran Peshimam, news editor, the Express Tribune, explains, despite the vociferous and strongly worded denials, what this report could mean for the party that aims to be bring an unstoppable tsunami of the masses.
Peshimam says that much of the young supporters of Khan, who make up the bulk of PTI’s tsunami, are actually not against the establishment, and follow their leader’s claim that once in power, the army would be made subservient to the government.
