ISLAMABAD: PTI chief Imran Khan announced late on Tuesday that his party would hold the last round of negotiations with the government on Wednesday (today) and then come up with final strategy.
“We will react accordingly if any misadventure like crackdown is initiated by the government against the peaceful protesters,” Imran told his workers and protesters from the stage at the Constitution Avenue. He warned the premier to avoid any unconstitutional step against peaceful protestors, declaring “we will protect and fight for our constitutional right of protest”. A the same time, the PTI chief hoped that the Supreme Court would on Wednesday order lifting of containers that block entry to the Constitution Avenue and city. He appealed to the judiciary to direct the government for removal of containers placed on the roads of capital, and reiterated his stance to continue the protest till Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s resignation. Speaking to the charged workers, PTI chief said during the general elections of May, 2013 the mandate of the masses was stolen through pre-planned and managed poll rigging. Till PM Nawaz Sharif heads the state of affairs there would be no justice and transparent investigation of rigging, Imran Khan maintained.
“ Akhtar Mengal (ex-Balochistan chief minister) also told me that a massive poll rigging was observed in Balochistan and fraudulent and fake results were projected by the con-artists of match fixing,” PTI chairman said. “PTI will stand with the people of Balochistan,” Imran Khan declared.
“Justice Ali Rizvi in his interview has endorsed the revelations made by former Additional Secretary Election Commission of Pakistan Afzal Khan and has disclosed that former Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhry observed pick and choose during the selection of judges for Election Tribunals (ETs)” Khan claimed.
