ISLAMABAD-Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan today said he would continue to stage sit-in in federal capital no matter how much government delayed the settlement of political deadlock.
Addressing his jubilant supporters from the top of his luxurious container here, Imran Khan said the government has placed more containers to block routes leading to the D Ground where his party is staging a sit-in since last week.
He said that the federal government is misusing the police. “Do they think that they will manage to stop PTI workers from joining the sit-in by blocking routes and torturing our activists……they will not stop,” he said. He further said that no one can stop the masses from joining the Azadi March sit-ins at Red Zone area. “The nation has already made its decision”, Khan said.
“How the government which has come into power through rigging could be an elected one? I challenge all parties to prove rigging in KPK. Do whatever you wish, the people of Pakistan have taken the decision,” said the PTI chief. “We have been peacefully protesting since so many days and have not done anything like Gullu Butt. We shall all set the judiciary free.” He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is Pakistan’s Hosni Mubarak, adding that he will sell Raiwind Palace to repay the losses suffered by the container owners. He asked under which law the roads have been sealed. “My life is in danger. Why are the rulers scared?” PTI Chief asked. “We shall fight till the last ball,” he added.
Earlier, a delegation of lawyers met him to express their solidarity with Khan who is demanding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s resignation, alongside Pakistan AwamiTehreek (PAT) chief Dr. TahirulQadri who is also leading thousands of his followers in Islamabad protest.
