The video had gone viral on social media as Zardari allegedly declared that a patch-up was "impossible". 

Imran Khan was forced to step down after his party lost the no-trust vote even as he claimed there was a "foreign conspiracy" against his regime. The former Pakistan prime minister had named the US as being behind the "conspiracy" however it was dismissed by the Biden administration.

Earlier this week, roads in Islamabad were blocked ahead of a major protest planned by ousted prime minister Imran Khan and his supporters as the former prime minister continues to conduct mass rallies across the country even as Shehbaz Sharif's government pledged to stop the rally in the country's capital.
