Don’t force my hand, Imran warns govt

PTI chief says ‘freedom movement’ will march towards Islamabad if political victimisation against his party continues

Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday warned the incumbent government that his “freedom movement” would march towards Islamabad if political victimisation against his party continued.

“I am warning you [PML-N-led coalition government] today, our justice movement will come to Islamabad if you continue to do this [political victimisation] and you will have nowhere to hide,” he said while addressing a public gathering in Gujrat. He lashed out at the government for its alleged use of force on PTI leader Shahbaz Gill, saying that he was stripped naked and tortured. They also tortured [journalist] Jameel Farooqui. Stripped him naked and humiliate him as well.

“Haleem Adil also has many cases against him. He is also being tortured in prison,” he lamented. Imran, while addressing the youth, said that together they needed to work to make the judicial system of the country better. “You all have to come with me for that.”

He condemned the PML-N for asking the judiciary to take action against him, saying that the same party, on the instructions of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, attacked the Supreme Court with clubs.

“They should be ashamed of themselves while making this demand. The PML-N should never say anything about my contempt case,” he added. He said that former chief justice Sajjad Ali Shah was removed after money was used by the PML-N. “If the judiciary is not strong, who will protect the rights of the people?” he questioned. He said that the “imported government” was imposed upon the nation via a foreign conspiracy.

“They did not want Imran Khan because he was saying “absolutely not”. He was making a foreign policy for the people of Pakistan,” he added.

He said that if Russia was giving his government oil at 30 to 40 per cent cheaper rates, why should he not buy it as it was better for the people? “India is also taking oil from Russia on 40 per cent cheap rates… why can’t we?” he questioned.

Imran said that petrol was priced at Rs150 per litre while diesel was available for Rs145 during PTI’s tenure despite being in the IMF programme, adding that petrol price was raised by Rs80 and diesel by Rs100 in only four months.
