ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s ousted prime minister, Imran Khan, brazenly accused the Biden administration of being involved in a “regime change conspiracy” in the country on Monday.
Ex-prime minister Imran Khan has repeatedly blamed the United States for supporting the no-confidence motion that led to his removal on April 10 and has refused to recognise the newly-elected prime minister, stating, “There can’t be any bigger disrespect to our country.” The administration of Joe Biden, on the other hand, denied any involvement in the process.
Khan challenged the Biden administration in a tweet whether its role in the “regime change plot” had lowered or raised anti-American sentiment in Pakistan.
“My question for the Biden Administration: By indulging in a regime change conspiracy to remove a democratically elected PM of a country of over 220 mn people to bring in a puppet PM, do you think you have lessened or increased anti-American sentiment in Pakistan?” the PTI chairman said.

The existing government officials have frequently claimed that Khan is blaming America for his removal since he failed to perform during his reign, but the PTI chairman remains certain that the US, along with the opposition at the time, was behind his removal.
The PTI chairman said at a news conference last month that a Joe Biden administration official advised Pakistan’s ex-ambassador to the US that Khan would have to be ousted via a no-confidence resolution.
Although some individuals in Pakistan were ignorant of the “plot,” Khan said that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, his brother Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, and PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari were all involved.
He had stated, “They were all complicit in this scheme.”
In a video address released last week, Khan urged his followers to begin preparing for the PTI’s lengthy march to Islamabad, stating that the PTI will not accept the “imported government.”
In the last week of May, he claimed, the PTI will commence an anti-government march towards Islamabad.
“We will be making this call to all Pakistanis, not only PTI supporters, since Pakistan has been insulted after a foreign power put the country’s most corrupt individuals on us,” Khan had stated.
Khan previously stated that he believes a wave of people would assault Islamabad and send a clear message to the nation: “From now on, no one will be tolerated.”
