Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that one cannot imagine in a civilized society that the country’s important decisions are taken abroad and by those who have been looting the state's wealth for the past 30 years.
According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan vowed to continue his fight for “real freedom” until his last breath as thousands of his supporters joined a “long march” to the capital Islamabad demanding snap elections.
Addressing marchers of Lala Musa and Jhang via video link, Imran lambasted Shehbaz Sharif and other PML-N leaders for holding a consultation with an “absconder” Mian Nawaz Sharif in London to make the important decision of the army chief’s appointment.
He questioned,” Are the “handlers” of the country’s incumbent rulers not worried about Pakistan.”
Imran also raised a question during his address about who was responsible for placing these thieves over the nation. “The people are asking this question and history is noting who is responsible for what is happening with the country,” he hinted.
Imran reiterated it is a decisive moment in the country’s history and invited the people to take part in the PTI’s long march to Islamabad.
On proceedings on a defamation suit filed by Shehbaz Sharif against “Daily Mail”, Imran said Shehbaz was mistaken in that he could call a judge and direct them to issue orders as per his will. “It will be a big challenge for Shehbaz Sharif to explain the allegations that he has leveled against the newspaper in the court, he maintained.
The former premier further lashing out at Shehbaz Sharif said that PM has been in London for three to four days, adding that there has been a spectacle that PML-N key leaders are discussing the country’s important appointment.
Khan further asserted that he doesn't want to appoint an army chief of his choice, reiterating he wants the decision regarding the army chief's appointment to be taken on merit.
Imran while dispelling the general impression that he had made the appointment of the army chief controversial. “I never made it controversial.
“I say that the army chief should be appointed on merit. I don’t want an army chief, judge, IG or NAB head of my choice. I want the best people on the basis of merit,” he asserted.
He alleged that the country’s incumbent rulers wanted to appoint people of their choice to top posts, claiming the Islamabad IG’s appointment by PM Shehbaz was such an example. “Because he (the IG) is corrupt, he will now serve him (the PM), he will do every unlawful task given by him.”
