ISLAMABAD - Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage, Senator Pervaiz Rashid said on Tuesday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was negating democracy by reposing no trust in the Supreme Court and Parliament.

The minister, in a statement here, said Imran Khan did not know that Jahangir Tareen was defeated by an independent candidate and not by the candidate of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. “If the mandate is fake then why Imran Khan is sitting in the government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” he added.

Later on, talking to the media persons outside the Parliament House, Rashid said the government took the serious notice of Dr Tahirul Qadri’s threats during his speech and it would response through legal way. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was elected as PM through a democratic way.
