Reiterating that he did not recognize the coalition government that was the result of a foreign conspiracy, former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday told his workers to get ready before he gave a call for another long march on Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing party workers in Islamabad, he said all that PTI wanted were free and fair elections in the country. “In fact, this is the voice of the entire nation,” he added.
Imran regretted that while other political parties, which were now part of the coalition government, had marched towards the federal capital under his government three times and returned to their homes safe and sound, the same did not happen in the case of PTI’s march as the state used its all might and power against the party workers when they had set out towards Islamabad on May 25.
“Pictures of women and children being teargassed and even being roughed up by police clearly show brutal tactics employed by the ‘imported’ government to silence dissent,” he said, and added, “Not even an enemy treats its opponents like this the way the imported government treated PTI’s men, women and even children during the march.”
Former prime minister went on to add that even today cases were being registered against him and other party leaders. “Even journalists are being hounded so that they could not report the facts,” he regretted.
