Despite asserting that he would not move into the Prime Minister’s residence, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has now been compelled to move into an official residence. This was necessitated as the security agencies said that private house of the cricketer-turned-politician is vulnerable to threats.
According to news agency PTI, a house in the Ministers’ Enclave in Islamabad is likely to be declared the official residence of the PTI chief, who is set to become the next Prime Minister of Pakistan. Notably, during his victory speech on July 26 after the Pakistan general elections, Imran Khan had said that he would not use the Prime Minister’s House as his residence.
Senior police and security personnel had visited Banigala residence of Imran Khan and discussed security-related issues with Imran Khan and other senior PTI leaders. They said that the house was not fit to be the official residence of Prime Minister as it could not be provided fool-proof security due to open area.
