Former Prime Minister Imran Khan said the Sri Lanka-like situation may rise if free and fair elections are not held, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Thursday.
“Punjab Governor Balighur Rahman has violated the constitution by not mentioning the date of elections in the summary advice after the dissolution of the assembly,” he said while talking to senior journalists.
The PTI chief said the Punjab governor’s act will be challenged in court. Punjab Assembly stood dissolved on the advice of the chief minister while Governor Baligh ur Rehman tweeted he would not take part in the process last week.
"All I can say about Ishaq Dar is that he is responsible for the disaster," Imran Khan said stressing that cracks in PML-N are visible. “First Chaudhry Nisar raised his voice against hereditary politics. Nawaz Sharif is not a politician,” the cricketer-turned-politician said. He said a political solution to the Balochistan problem will bear fruit.
The former prime minister has been on a campaign to force snap polls since his ouster last year. He blamed the regime change on the US plot while Washington denied any wrongdoing. Inflation was cited as the main reason for making the PDM bring a no-confidence motion to the parliament for regime change.
Imran Khan claimed: “With each passing day, PDM is being exposed. The PDM is a failure. They have nothing to do with public service. They are serving their own interests.
"Only the Tehreek-e-Insaaf government can save the country from the crises hitting the country hard. I still have a lot of cards to defeat the PDM. Even if I am disqualified, people will vote for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's ideology."
