ISLAMABAD: (APS)May29, 2016 – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday held a meeting with National Press Club (NPC) members at Bani Gala and said that media had awakened political consciousness among new generation and due to social media it had been impossible to deceive public, reported APS News
He said that any leader has to be answerable to public in a democratic system while considering himself above the law and accountability in a dictator oriented system of governing was not just.
He said that Pakistan had faced an immense crisis as Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif refused to resign. He said that elections had been conducted but lack of democratic behavior lead to the absence of real sense of democracy in the country. He said that poor nations faced devastation as their leaders had been involved in money laundering.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) would have never won the elections without election commission’s support, the party had bribed individuals from every sphere of life including police, administration, journalists and judges, Imran said.
Imran added that they had every right to storm the streets if they did not get justice. Chances of the military invention would die if rigging and corruption had eradicated from the country and that PTI recognises journalists’ valuable services for country’s stable democracy.
Imran said that Nawaz would be blamed if democracy gets derailed, the country cannot function without a chief executive and his party would raise the very issue in Parliament over PM’s absence.
