‘One million people to join Islamabad protest on Nov 2,’ says Imran
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan believes that at least one million people will stand by his party in Islamabad protest on November 2.
Speaking to media here, Khan declared Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a ‘greater security threat’ to the country.
The PTI chief said the prime minister was trying to isolate the Pakistan Army. He reiterated that PM Sharif was evading accountability and speaking lies to ‘hide his corruption.’
Khan said Nawaz Sharif had been exposed in the Panama Papers, hence he was finding a way out to escape. He claimed that Indian analysts see Nawaz Sharif as their ‘asset and they have spoken it clearly’.
He asked whether the defence minister don’t have responsibility to speak for Pakistan Army. Imran Khan also hit out at his detractors, warning them to keep Shaukat Khanum Hospital aside in their bashing.
He regretted that the hospital was being scandalized by PML-N leaders to divert public attention from “PM’s corruption”.
‘Lockdown until PM resigns’
The Chairman PTI Imran Khan has already clarified that this time, the siege of the federal capital would continue until the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Khan also told Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to face an inquiry into Panama Leaks Papers or give resignation because according to him, “Not without justice, PTI will leave roads in Islamabad.”
Initially, Imran Khan demanded a probe into the health of the elections 2013, which his party thinks were rigged.
Later names of several Pakistanis including Nawaz Sharif’s children Maryam, Hussain, and Hasan surfaced in one of the world’s biggest ever data leaks through an online searchable database made public by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in April 2016, following which the prime minister had formed an inquiry commission to probe his family’s alleged links to offshore accounts.
