ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior vice president Fawad Chaudhry has said that they stood firmly on early election’s demand, ARY News reported on Wednesday.
“If you want to see instability in the country, then you should choose to disqualify Imran Khan.” Fawad Chaudhry gave the statement while talking to the ARY News programme ‘Off the Record’. “We are still standing firmly on our demand to organise fresh elections before Ramadan.”
“We are advancing as per our strategy. Imran Khan’s disqualification will bring stability or instability to the country. If you want to go ahead, then there is no option other than dialogues and fresh elections. National politics is no more bound to the decisions behind closed doors.”
Fawad Chaudhry said that PTI is also mulling over the deteriorated economic situation of the country. He added that the country has never witnessed such situations despite the change of the past governments.
Regarding Lahore’s meeting chaired by Imran Khan today, he said that the PTI leadership held discussions on the Arshad Sharif case and the political situation of the country. He reiterated that PTI wants the organisation of general elections before Ramadan.
