Contempt Case: Imran says unaware of response by PTI on my behalf

Imran Khan hints at another long march, vows to approach SC


PESHAWAR: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Saturday while again expressing his determination to come out against the corrupt government said that petitions will be filed in the Supreme Court on Monday to know if peaceful protest is the right of the democratic party or not.

Addressing a press conference after PTI core committee meeting on Saturday, he said that the peaceful protest is our right and they staged protest because they do not accept the imported government. He said, “We have a track record 26 years of peaceful protest and never held violent protests, adding that PTI is the only party that doesn’t have a military wing.”

The PTI chairman said he would never accept an imported government led by a corrupt elite, even if it meant sacrificing his own life.
He said the police brutally tortured his party members and supporters during the Long March in disregard of the Supreme Court’s orders, adding that his party would raise the issue of the government’s brutal repression in all forums and would discuss the “imported government” recently. Protesters are prohibited from seeking legal help. “.

“If Shehbaz Sharif and Rana Sanaullah would have been punished for the Model Town massacre, they wouldn’t have repeated the same against PTI workers,” said Imran Khan.

Imran Khan said the government raised fuel prices by 30 rupees under pressure from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), but our government is negotiating a deal with Russia for oil that is 30 percent cheaper. “India is also buying cheaper oil from Russia, but our importing government is not buying cheap oil from Russia for fear of their owners.”
He said India pursued an independent foreign policy and bought cheap oil from Moscow despite being a strategic partner of the United States, and the PTI government wanted to give it an independent foreign policy, thus plotting against him.

“I am ready for “all sorts of negotiations” that can lead to free and fair elections,” he said and added this time we will come with full preparation after forming a plan to avoid what happened to us during the long march.

Imran Khan dug into the government, which he said had no “public mandate”, so the ruling coalition was afraid to contest elections.

Terming the ruling coalition incompetent and incapable of running the country, the former PM said that whoever allowed these people to come to power, will be “responsible for the looming chaos.”
