Imran Khan has once again demanded Nawaz Sharif to step down while talking to reporters after Prime Minister’s speech on Tuesday. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader said that justice cannot be served if Nawaz remains in the power. Khan also told reporters that ‘Azadi’ march will be held as planned on August 14.
While addressing a press conference, Imran Khan said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf will continue with its ‘Azadi’ march towards the capital as scheduled despite Nawaz Sharif’s intention to probe the 2013 election rigging charges through investigation by a commission comprising of three supreme court judges.
Imran Khan claimed that investigation of the election fraud cannot be conducted transparently under the government of Nawaz Sharif.
PTI chairman said that Nawaz Sharif must step down as Prime Minister when the commission is formed to allow free and fair investigation of the fraud allegations.
Nawaz Sharif had earlier asked the Supreme Court Chief Justice to form a commission to probe the alleged rigging in the 2013 polls during a televised speech.
Imran Khan said that he does not understand why Nawaz Sharif is afraid of reelection in the country. PTI Chairman claimed, “If I am told there is rigging in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, I will order re-election. I am confident we will have a bigger victory.”
Sheikh Rashid had told reporters that toppling the Nawaz government is the only one point agenda of the long marches and we will not move from Islamabad until Nawaz is removed from power.
It appears that agitation against rigging is secondary reason for protest march and taking over the government is the target of PTI chairman and its leaders.
