Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will not get a date for fresh elections from Rawalpindi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Friday, he advised PTI chief Imran Khan to postpone his party’s long march in Rawalpindi on November 26 as there are threats of suicide attacks in the public gathering.
Rana Sanaullah further said that the government had sent a letter to PTI leader Asad Umar, detailing the threats to the PTI long march in Rawalpindi tomorrow. “According to the agencies’ reports, Imran Khan is in danger and can become a victim of any possible terrorist activity in the meeting, he added. Interior Minister further stated said that if PTI leader Asad Umar wanted to verify the threats, he could verify from the agencies.
Rana Sanaullah said that Imran Khan’s march aimed at destroying Pakistan politically and economically. Imran Khan has still time to postpone the public gathering as he could not get anything from the march, he hinted.
He said that the PTI long march has lost its effectiveness now and Imran Khan would not get a date for the elections now. "The establishment did not get you an election date as the establishment would not be bow before your blackmailing anymore, he added.
Rana Sanaullah advised Imran Khan for becoming a mature politician and said to meet his fellows like Zardari, Fazlur Rehman, Akhtar Mengal, Khalid Magsi, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, and discuss the elections with them. “You can even meet Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif, they won't refuse," he added.
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah again asked PTI Imran to come back to the parliament so that the country can move forward. “If Imran Khan failed to do so, he would be considered responsible for everything including inflation, economic disaster, and political turmoil in the country,” he added.
The minister also discouraged people from attending the march, saying it was not a movement for “Haqeeqi Azadi but to create instability in the country”.
The minister also assured that none of the roads in Islamabad will be closed on Saturday and the district administration would provide all the necessary support to the PTI.
