BAHAWALPUR- Chairman Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has warned of "tsunami march" to Islamabad on August 14 if his demands regarding alleged rigging in the May 11, 2013 general elections were not met.
Addressing a large public gathering here on Friday, Imran Khan criticized the government and made four demands which he said he wanted to be addressed within one month.
His first demand was to know how Prime Minister declared victory in the May 11 elections beforehand. Secondly he demanded that what was the role played by former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhary in the elections. His third demand was regarding the caretaker government that what role did they played in the elections. His final demand was from the government to answer about voter fraud in 90 constituencies.
The chairman PTI also asked PM not to politicize the issue of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). He demanded the prime minister to allocate funds for the IDPs from the North Waziristan Agency (NWA) if he really wanted to help them.
If the prime minister was so concerned about the IDPs why didn't he inform the PTI before the military offensive in the tribal belt, he questioned.
He said that PM should not make the mistake of thinking that unity over the Waziristan operation means that the PTI will not be a strong opposition.
Imran Khan also condemned the PML-N led Punjab government over its handling of Lahore tragedy, saying that the shooting of protesters only took place during dictatorships and not under democratic governments.
He also lashed out at the government for what he claimed fake economic growth during its tenure saying all he could see was “Jangla Bus Service,” referring to the Metro Bus Project in Lahore.
