Addressing a press conference in Railways headquarters in Lahore, the minister said challenged the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan to resign from his seat and contest fresh elections against him [in order to determine real public support].
He said Khan should detach himself from Dr. Qadri, alleging that the PAT chief had 10,000 armed custodians. Speeches of Dr. Qadri are also provocative, added Rafique.
He asked rationale for carrying out march that plummeted that Pakistan stock market, causing loss of billions of rupees. The minister resolved that such long march were no threat to the democracy.
