ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Monday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had no moral justification to remain the prime minister of Pakistan and should resign till investigation into rigging of elections is completed.
Addressing his party activists from the red zone after the Pakisatn Awami Tehreek and the PTI workers reached at the gate of the Prime Minister House, Imran Khan said that Nawaz should decide whether he wants to go peaceful or in disgrace.
He said that they could not run the government and the whole Pakistan would shut down if they continued to remain in offices. He said that they started the march with the commitment that either they would get freedom or die.
PTI chief said that they had demanded Nawaz Sharif to honourably resign for one month because according to him there could be no impartial investigation into rigging of elections and the Model Town tragedy in the presence of the prime minister and the Punjab chief minister.
He said that if they remained in office, they would not allow transparent investigations. He said that Nawaz has not been sentenced in any corruption case. Imran Khan was of the opinion that the movement of oppressed would unite every one.
He said that no where in democracy in the world, people had been killed as had been done in Pakistan. He claimed that one of their workers had been killed while 45 people injured with bullets are in hospital. He said that the use of rubber bullets was against Geneva Convention and anybody killed with this bullet would be considered as murder.
Imarn Khan said they had no connection with those entering the Pakistan Television building. He said that a case should also be registered against the prime minister under article six of the constitution for making wrong statement in the National Assembly.
He said that they had told General Raheel Sharif that their protest would continue till the resignation of Nawaz Sharif as the prime minister. The PTI chief said that it was their democratic right to protest over rigging in elections.
He said that so far 2500 policemen had refused to implement the orders of rulers and thanked them for their stance. He said that the policemen said they would not take any action in violation of the law as they were not servants of Sharif’s.
Imran said that Pakistan would be the first Muslim country where there would be genuine democracy. He asked the people to reach Islamabad as it was the day of real freedom, little time is left for the government and they would hear good news any time.
He asked the workers to remain peaceful as they had achieved their mission through sacrifices and did not turn their factory into defeat through some wrong act.
