In a media interaction, Imran Khan said, “They are trying to arrest the head of the largest party in the country in this case.” He even went on to say, “Every statement has a context. The country is regressing day by day, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) report has shown it. They can do whatever they want, but the only solution to the instability is fresh elections.”

Imran Khan expressed “deep regret” over his controversial remarks against a female judge. He said that he “never meant to hurt her feelings (female judge) and if her feelings have been hurt, it is deeply regretted,” adding that he “neither meant to threaten the lady judge nor could he think of doing so”.
