Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan has said that he can see middle stump of Nawaz Sharif flying away. Imran Khan was addressing a massive public congregation at Parade Ground in the Federal Capital Islamabad to celebrate thanksgiving-day in wake of Supreme Court’s decision of constituting a commission to probe the Panama Leaks.
Imran Khan started his speech by saying that he is waiting for the day when Sharif Brothers will be behind the bars. Addressing his supporters and workers, Imran Khan said that he is extremely happy by the Supreme Court’s decision of holding Nawaz Sharif accountable and the SC’s comments that relevant institutions are not working properly.
Chairman PTI, cancelling his Islamabad Lockdown plans after when Supreme Court offered to form a commission to probe Nawaz Sharif and his family for holding offshore accounts, said to his workers that if NAB and FBR were to catch the thieves then there was no need for PTI to come out on roads and streets for justice.
Addressing to thanksgiving rally, he said that Federal Information Minister Pervez Rasheed was directed to resign from his post so that free and fair investigations could be ensured. Same is the case with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif due to which he must resign as well because he will be investigated by Supreme Court, Khan added.
Imran Khan said that Nawaz Sharif should be ashamed for police’s behaviour with PTI’s supporters, specially with PTI’s female workers. Due to extreme pressure from Panama Leaks and upcoming investigations over it, Nawaz Sharif is in extreme pressure and confusion, a reason why he is constructing roads over roads, Imran Khan quoted.
PTI Chief also targeted his political opponents. Talking about Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, he said that Fazal-ur-Rehman was filling his pockets through diesel permit then and now he is doing the same by becoming Nawaz Sharif’s slave. Imran Khan said that Asif Ali Zardari and Khursheed Shah are afraid of accountability as they want next term in 2018 General Elections.
Once again accusing Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari, Imran Khan said that both of them collectively appointed NAB Chairman so that no one can ask them for being crime partners in looting public’s money. Imran Khan also demanded resignation from NAB Chairman as well.
Speaking to his workers, PTI Chief said that he believes in his solo flight as he can fight against corruption with no one besides him, but millions of Pakistanis. Imran Khan also praised Chief Minister KPK Pervez Khattak and his companions for their extreme dedication and devotion in eradicating hurdles from their way and while dealing with tear gas shells on their way to Bani Gala. He embraced Pervez Khattak on stage and hugged him for his bravery and courage.
Reminding the Federal Government for its accusations of having weapons, Imran Khan claimed that there were no weapons with PTI supporters coming from KPK. The only weapon was Sheikh Rasheed’s Cigar which had burned our political opponents.
Earlier in the evening, Vice Chairman PTI Shah Mehmood Qureshi addressed the party workers and said that PTI only wants to shut the practice of corruption from the system. He said that they didn’t want to shut Islamabad down but government had left no other option. Shah Mehmood Qureshi also paid tribute to the arrested workers of PTI and to those who were coming from KPK.
Later then, CM KPK Pervez Khattak talked to the masses and addressed that PTI has teams who are always ready to continue their struggle for better Pakistan. He wished that if they had more days, government had no idea that what they were made of to resist and bear any kind of resistance. They tried to use their own Pashtun brothers against us by deploying FC to stop them, Khattak added.
Pervez Khattak said that he wishes for the day when he (Shahbaz Sharif) will be fired upon with tear gasses upon entering KPK, and then he will ask him how it feels. He said that he doesn’t care about his seat. He has been a political prisoner before and if Imran Khan asks him, he will resign from his post in no time.
Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad, while addressing the gathering, expressed his hope that Supreme Court will save this country from corrupt leadership. He also alleged Nawaz Sharif for being a friend of Narendra Modi and said that Nawaz Sharif wants to transform Pakistan Army into Punjab Police but they won’t ever let that happen.
Pivoting from locking down Islamabad to peaceful celebration in the federal capital, Imran Khan on Tuesday had announced that his party will observe thanksgiving-day in Islamabad in wake of Supreme Court’s decision to probe Nawaz Sharif and his family in account of Panama Papers Revelations.
Thousands of PTI workers and supporters gathered at Parade Ground on Imran Khan’s call and chanted “Go Nawaz Go” as well on Imran Khan’s arrival. They were waving the party flag and enjoying the party anthems. More than 10,000 security personnel were being deployed at Parade Ground by Interior Ministry to ensure the safety of participants.
