Imran Khan rejects possibility of electoral alliance with Zardari-led PPP
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Monday dispelled a possibility of forming an electoral alliance with Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) ahead of General Elections 2018.
Talking to journalists after appearing before an anti-terrorism court, Khan said his party would not go into formation of any alliance with PPP under the leadership of Asif Ali Zardari.
“We have been at forefront of anti-corruption campaign, possibility of alliance with Zardari is not possible,” remarked Khan in response to a question.
Throwing light on his party politics, the PTI chief said if his prolonged endeavours were solely to come into power, he would have joined hands with Nawaz Sharif and Zardari.
“My fight is against corruption,” he underscored.
He deplored the string of cases filed against him at various courts, as he said: “Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is making all-out efforts to give an impression that if they are corrupt so are the others by filing cases against opponents.”
Earlier today, an anti-terrorism court rejected Khan’s plea seeking removal of terrorism charges in four cases registered against him back in 2014, allegedly for inciting his party workers to violence, inflicting losses to state properties including the state television building, the parliament, and injuring Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Asmatullah Junejo during Islamabad sit-in back in 2014.
