‘PM Nawaz has no right to oppress peaceful protesters’

ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan on Tuesday said that PM Nawaz Sharif has no right to oppress peaceful protesters, ARY News reported.

Addressing his participants here at D-Chowk, Imran Khan said that he has got freedom of expression and the right of peaceful protest in democracy. He added that PM Nawaz Sharif has no right to subject peaceful protesters to torture.

He said that thrashing someone for voicing ‘Go Nawaz Go’ is an offence in democracy, for the freedom of expression allows us to express our thoughts and wills.

The PTI chairman said that the people of Pakistan are not going to bear unjust practices of the rulers now.

“We are demanding the government to hold all those accountable, who were involved in rigging the elections and if the politicians had done this 30 years ago, there would have been no need for us to take this stand today”, he said. “Everyone knew that the Elections 2013 were rigged and if they were not then why is the ruling party hiding behind stays.”

He also slammed that the Speaker Ayaz Sadiq is preparing to consult the apex court in order to stop the recounting of votes in NA-122.

Khan said that ANP leader, Mian Iftikhar Hussain accused that large-scale rigging took place in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“He is a respected man and to him I say that I am ready to open all the constituencies for verification, for I am not afraid as I was genuinely voted into power from there”, said Imran Khan.
