ISLAMABAD:(APS)OCTOBER 28,2016-Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday questioned the government’s decision to not allow him to leave his Bani Gala residence to join protesters in Rawalpindi.
“Is this a kingdom or a democracy?” he asked. “What crime have we committed? Why did they stop me from going to Rawalpindi?”
“When IHC directed [authorities] not to block Islamabad then why was Bani Gala sealed?”
Explaining his decision to not resist police in reaching Rawalpindi, Khan said : “We were going to Pindi to prepare for Nov 2, but when they stopped us we established that there is no point in doing this today when our target is Nov 2.”
He said he would show during the Islamabad protest “what the power of people actually is”.
“I will follow you till my last breath,” he warned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. “If you put me in jail, I will come after you when I get out.”
Imran further alleged that although Nawaz chants the mantra of democracy, he does that “just to safeguard his corruption”.
“To hide his corruption, he does not respect any law… to hide his corruption, he uses the language of Modi against Pakistan Army,” he alleged.
He said even “30,000 policemen” cannot stop him from going to the capital on Nov 2 and directed party workers to avoid arrest and gear up for the planned protest in Islamabad.
