Ready for talks on elections: Imran Khan

Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said that he is ready to hold talks on elections.

“I have no contacts with anyone, but ready for talks on elections,” Imran Khan was quoted as saying in an interview. The former premier said talks will only be held on elections. “No need for talks if elections are not held.” He reiterated his resolve that he will not negotiate with the ‘corrupts’ and ‘thieves’. “How will I negotiate with those who are ‘corrupts’ and ‘thieves’?” he asked. If elections are not held now, the chances for polls in October are less. The former prime minister also alleged that PTI seats were deliberately decreased in the 2018 general elections.

Lashing out at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif for making undue statements against the Supreme Court bench hearing the election delay case, the PTI chief claimed it is his hobby to divide Supreme Court for his personal gains. The whole nation stands firmly united with the Supreme Court, he maintained. Earlier, former premier and PTI chief Imran Khan appealed to the nation to stand united for the supremacy of the Constitution in the country. While addressing PTI workers and supporters via video link today, Imran Khan warned that the country would not be able to survive if the nation does not stand for the supremacy of the Constitution.

He also claimed that he knew who managed the PTI members. He strongly criticised the PDM for refusing to accept the decision of the three-member bench of the Supreme Court and said that the PTI would fully support the Supreme Court.
