PM must resign, Khan presents 6 demands for negotiations
ISLAMABAD, Aug 20 (Online): Terming Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Pakistan’s Hosni Mobarak, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said that PTI’s first and foremost condition for negotiation is Prime Minister’s resignation.
PTI chief presented a number of demands saying his committee is ready to negotiate on the following conditions.
1 – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif must resign
2 – Immediate electoral reforms
3 – Reelection must take place after reforms
4 –Neutral caretaker government, not the one that inflicts ‘35 punctures’
5 – Resignation of all the election commissioners that managed the previous election.
6 – Accountability of those who ‘colluded’ with Prime Minister for election rigging, must be imprisoned and tried under Article 6.
The PTI chairman said, “If all the opposition parties in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) allege the PTI led provincial government of rigging, I will ask Pervez Khattak to conduct elections the very next day, for we are not afraid and know that we have the genuine mandate”.
He also criticized the Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah, saying that he should rather become the personal secretary of Nawaz Sharif, for he is indeed supporting the government and not acting as true Leader of the Opposition.
Khan said, “The current rulers came into power stealing our mandate. He once again termed PM Nawaz Sharif to be the Hosni Mubarak of Egypt”.
He slammed the owner of Jang/Geo group, Mir Shakil ur Rehman and said he is a tax evader, who earns by blackmailing the people sitting back in UAE.
Khan said Mir Shakil launched a campaign to malign the Pakistan Army and now he is up to waging propaganda against him.
He said that Mir Shakil is compelling his channel to act as the media cell of PMLN and he will be held accountable for all his doings.
Moreover, the PTI chief named the D-Chowk, Islamabad as the Azadi Square like the Tahrir Square of Cairo.
