LAHORE Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf Imran Khan has warned the rulers of another long march if the Apex Court verdict on National Reconciliation Ordinance was not implemented and the government tried to sideline the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. Talking to a group of journalists here on Monday, he said that any misadventure could prove disastrous for the rulers as the masses were standing by the independent judiciary. Information Secretary Omar Sarfraz Cheema, President PTI Punjab Ahsan Rasheed, President PTI Lahore Mehmood-ur-Rasheed and other leaders were also present. Criticising the stance adopted by the PML-N for fear of derailment of the system, he said that those who protect the corrupt would darken their own political future. He said the judiciary, media and masses were standing on one side and handful of corrupt on the other. He was of the view that the system could be saved either through early polls or through the Prime Ministers role of standing by the Apex Court verdict. He regretted that Yousaf Raza Gilani was taking dictation from President Zardari while the PML-N was supporting the PPP due to the fear of re-opening loans cases. He said the judiciary, for the sake of its repute, would have to take to task the elements involved in bank loans scam even if these people had supported the cause of free judiciary. Ruling out any possibility of imposition of Martial Law, he said that despite political crises no one would dare to wage war against judiciary and the masses. He offered to convene an All-Parties Conference on framing a new terrorism strategy provided given consent by the government. He said the Taliban were ready for talks and were awaiting a nod from the govt. He said that he had the mandate to bring the militants to negotiating table under the unanimous resolution of the Parliament calling for talks instead of resorting to use of force for solving the militancy issue. To a question about the status of his plan to sue MQM Quaid Altaf Husain in London courts, the PTI Chief said the govt was not cooperating and permitting the Scotland Yard complete their investigation in Pakistan by recording statements of witnesses. He said he would take the case to courts only after completing all legal requirements so that the MQM leader could not take advantage of any loophole in the case and get himself proved innocent. Referring to the dismantling of membership drive camp by police the student wing of the party had set up at Muslim Town, he said that the rulers were afraid of the popularity of the PTI. He said earlier the provincial government had got removed PTI billboards and banners erected during various campaigns of the party in the City. He regretted that the Chief Minister did not institute inquiry on removal of the billboards and banners as promised during a meeting with him. He said the party would consider going to the courts against the governments highhandedness. Meanwhile, President Lahore Bar Association Rana Zia Abdur Rehman announced joining the PTI at a ceremony held here at Kissan Hall on Monday in the presence of the party Chairman.
