Imran links talks with PM Nawaz’s resignation
Addressing a charged up crowd in the Red Zone of Islamabad, Imran Khan said PTI is a democratic party and it is ready to hold talks with the government, but the negotiations will start with the resignation of the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif.
He elaborated his six demands for talks as:
1- Resignation of PM Nawaz Sharif.
3- Electoral Reforms.
4- Formation of Unbiased Caretaker Government.
5- Stepping Down of the entire Election Commission.
6- Those involved in Election rigging should be subjected to accountability.
The PTI chairman said, “If all the opposition parties in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) allege the PTI led provincial government of rigging, I will ask Pervez Khattak to conduct elections the very next day, for we are not afraid and know that we have the genuine mandate”.
He also criticized the Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah, saying that he should rather become the personal secretary of Nawaz Sharif, for he is indeed supporting the government and not acting as true Leader of the Opposition.
Khan said, “The current rulers came into power stealing our mandate and termed PM Nawaz Sharif to be the Hosni Mubarak of Egypt”.
He slammed the owner of Jang/Geo group, Mir Shakil ur Rehman and said he is a tax evader, who earns by blackmailing the people, sitting back in UAE.
Khan said Mir Shakil launched a campaign to malign the Pakistan Army and now he is up to waging propaganda against him.
He said that Shakil is compelling his channel to act as the media cell of PMLN and he will be held accountable for all his doings.
Moreover, the PTI chief named the D-Chowk, Islamabad as the Azadi Square like the Tahrir Square of Cairo.
