LAHORE - PTI chairman Imran Khan has said the provincial government can neither shoot down drone nor approach the UN Security Council directly for justice, therefore it decided to ask the federal government to get aggression in the province stopped.

He said that party spokesperson will brief the media about the FIR of the Hangu drone attack and investigations.

Talking to media after offering condolence with party leader Abdul Aleem Khan on the death of his mother on Tuesday, Khan said Interpol could be contacted after fixing of responsibility through investigation. He said the KPK chief minister had written a letter to the PM with the stance that his government could not protect Nato supply, adding that article 148 of Constitution puts responsibility on the federation to protect its units against any foreign aggression.

“I urged the PML-N leadership to fulfill all promises which it had made prior to general elections as the PTI was fulfilling all pledges in KPK. If there would be government of PTI in Centre, we would definitely strike down drone and approach the UN Security Council for justice but the present government had adopted delaying tactic on this issue,” Khan added.

Khan questioned the PML-N claims that the US is our friend, asking if a friend treats the other this way – by killing people.

To a question about the leave of the NAB chairman, Khan said: “We had challenged this appointment in the Supreme Court and the court decision in NICL case proved that he was involved in corruption and abuse of authority.”  How an accused of corruption could do accountability of others, Khan maintained.  He urged the nation to unite against drones to put pressure on the US, as it has derailed peace process in Pakistan.

He said that in protest against drones and Nato supply, the PTI would not desire to do anything wrong but the voice of the nation should be heeded. He further said now the people have to decide to live with honor and dignity or face embarrassment at the hands of the US.
