Imran Khan wants to play final without qualifying quarter-final: Rashid
ISLAMABAD, May 11 (NNI): Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervez Rashid has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman Imran Khan wants to win final without even qualifying the quarter-final.
Addressing a delegation of PML-N youth wing, Pervez Rashid said that the performance of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa remained very poor.
“Imran Khan is sure about his defeat in first ten overs, this is why he is running from the field. Khan wants to win final without playing the quarterfinal and five-year match. His aim is to attack on the system by bringing spectators into field,” the minister used cricket terminology while commenting on cricketer-turned-politician’s politics.
The minister said that Imran Khan seeing his certain defeat wanted that the crowd storm into the field disturbing the match giving an excuse to run away from the field.
Pervaiz Rashid said that Imran Khan’s performance in the first ten overs of his quarterfinal match could be gauged from the performance of his Khyber Pukhtunkhaw government, which proved highly disastrous and the defeat appears imminent.
PTI chief Imran Khan has warned that the government would be held responsible for any agitation or anarchy if the party supporters were stopped from participating in the rally against irregularities in last year’s general elections.
Khan blames the ruling PML-N for massive rigging in Punjab, the stronghold of Nawaz Sharif’s politics. He says the PTI is protesting against 'judiciary’s failure' to give justice to the party.
May 11 marks the passage of a year since the 2013 general elections
