US meddling in Pakistani elections to keep Imran Khan out?

United States Senator Chris Van Hollen, during his keynote address at the annual meeting and gala dinner of the DC, Maryland, Virginia (DMV) chapter of the Association of Pakistani Physicians of North America, unequivocally asserted on Sunday that the Biden administration had no intentions of intervening in Pakistan's internal political affairs. With his deep-rooted connections to the Biden administration, Senator Hollen passionately debunked accusations of political interference.

Drawing upon his extensive history of communication with the Biden administration, the senator confidently affirmed that there had been no orchestrated efforts to manipulate any aspect of Pakistani politics.

His words carried significance as they came amidst an ongoing investigation regarding Imran Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), and his claims concerning a diplomatic cipher. Khan had asserted that this cipher contained evidence of US involvement in his removal from power in April of the preceding year, executed through a no-confidence vote.

Senator Hollen, the distinguished guest of honor at the ceremony, shared the stage with Pakistan's Ambassador to the US, Masood Khan.

This high-profile event served as a pertinent platform for the American politician to delve into pressing matters concerning US-Pakistan relations and the perceived role of the Biden administration in shaping the landscape of Pakistani politics
