Stay tuned with 24 News HD Android App
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has repeated demand for snap polls, saying the early election is the only solution to the ongoing economic problem, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing the long march participants of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Wednesday, the former prime minister said he would announce the date of the long march’s arrival at Rawalpindi in a couple of days and then the future line of action will be drawn. “Our long march is peaceful and will remain peaceful as per the constitution and law,” he stressed,
He said the national economy is sinking due to the wrong policies of the government and the people worldwide start thinking that Pakistan’s economy doesn’t have the strength to pay its debts back. “This situation is dangerous for the national economy because people will lose faith and stop investments in the country leading to inflation and unemployment,” he added.
PTI chief said a free and fair election is the only solution to present political and economic crises of the country. “But he knows that Nawaz Sharif and Zardari will not go for an early election because they are scared,” he disclosed.
Imran Khan recalled that during the by-polls his party won by a margin of 75 per cent despite attempts at rigging.
The former prime minister alleged that the “thieves” had taken over the country and PTI’s long march is aimed at getting rid of them. “The thieves are sitting in the federal cabinet as more than 60 per cent of the ministers are facing corruption charges and are on bail,” he added.
He claimed that the coalition government is going to amend the Pakistan Army Act for its personal benefit.
He said that the ruling party members got relief in Rs1,100 billion corruption cases against them by bringing amendments to NAB laws through the parliament.
“His march toward Islamabad is his right. And we are inviting the nation to come out for rule of law in the country,” he added. The PTI chief, once again, criticized the incumbent government and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for consulting PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif over the army chief’s appointment.
Khan recalled that all the appointments made by the coalition government were taken in the view of personal benefits. “By making changes to the army act, they will harm institutions for their own interest,” he feared.
PTI chief Imran Khan said that the Jang group is involved in his character assassination. He vowed that he would contact international courts against the Jang group.
The former premier said that Dubai-based businessman Umar Farooq Zahoor is a fraud and that his interview was a propaganda campaign against him. He vowed to file a case against Umar Farooq also in Dubai and the UK.
He again called on the chief justice of Pakistan to launch a probe into three landmark cases including the Arshad Sharif murder case, Azam Swati custodial torture, and the issue of the Wazirabad FIR.
