ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday said the protest demonstration would continue until the resignation of Premier Nawaz Sharif.
Imran Khan said Nawaz was trying to have the privilege of “political martyrdom” but “we will not provide this chance to him”. The skipper warned the government that any action or crackdown by police on the peaceful protesters would “prove last nail in the coffin of government”, adding, “The PTI is fighting and struggling against the status-quo and the tiny ruling class of oppressors who had occupied the wealth and resources of the nation.”
Speaking to his charged workers in front of the Parliament House, Kaptaan said, “I stand by all my statements related to the former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry,” adding, “I spent one month in jail” for the restoration of judiciary.
Addressing Iftikhar Chaudhry, he said, “You deceived the entire nation while being part of polls rigging and match fixing during last general elections of 2013…. so the nation and God will not spare you.”
Imran said Nawaz always bought the people for his businesses and profits. He said after the revelations of former Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) additional secretary Afzal Khan the PML-N has no right to rule the country.
Under Nawaz there was no hope of justice, and he was well aware of the fact that a free and fair investigation of poll rigging and match fixing would keep him away from the premiership as he managed the rigging, Imran added.
“We have entered into a phase of nerve test and you need to be optimist and never lose your heart as man is not made for defeat. The corrupt tiny elite devised a system to exploit the weaker segments of the society and the PTI will struggle against the occupation of this ruling class besides we will make Pakistan free of their occupation,” the skipper added.
PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the government was planning to attack the peaceful protesters, adding that any such action would have dire consequences for the government.
