No retreat, no surrender, says Imran Khan

  • PTI chief sticks to demand of PM’s resignation for transparent probe into rigging
  • Says PTI MPs to attend Parliament’s session for the last time to voice concerns
  • PTI chief says ‘deeply hurt’ byJaved Hashmi’s allegations as he was not following dictation of army or judiciary

Reiterating his unwavering resolve to not step back without making the prime minister step down, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday showed a tinge of inclination towards political negotiation saying that his lawmakers, who had earlier quit their seats in the Parliament, will attend their “last” National Assembly session today (Wednesday) to voice their concerns – a move which can possibly take the violent confrontation a step closer to the field of political dialogue.

Returning to the sit-in venue in the capital’s Red Zone after six hours, the PTI chief made straight to the top of his container and addressed the protesters concerned for him.

The PTI chief also told PTI’s MNAs led by Shah Mehmood Qureshi to go and “have a blast” on their last day in assembly by responding to the government’s charge sheet against PTI “point by point”. “We will tell in the assembly who is with the Parliament and who is against it,” he said.


Moreover, rubbishing PTI President Javed Hashmi’s claims, Khan denounced the claims of any association with judges, however saying that he had met Justice Nasirul Mulk. “He is a nice personality. I respect him a lot,” he added.

Jettisoning Hashmi’s assertions as “worthless”, the PTI chief underlined that he was controlled by none but his ideology.

Alluding to Hashmi’s volley of accusations, Khan denounced the efforts to malign and cast aspersions on Pakistan Army, observing that he “does not need other’s shoulders to seek entry into the corridors of power”.

“I have great respect for Hashmi, who remained many years in jail for his ideology against a dictator. If he had the lust for power, he would have been in power a long ago,” he however agreed.

Khan also lashed out at JUI-F’s Fazlur Rehman and PkMAP’s Mahmood Khan Achakzai for their speeches against PTI. “Maulana Sb is a sold out politician. Only a couple of ministries are enough to have his support,” he said.


Lavishing laurels on policemen who did not open fire at the unarmed protesters, Khan said at least 2,500 policemen declined obeying the firing orders while three inspectors general, who defied the “illegal” directives from their high-ups, have been removed from office.

The 18 days of Islamabad protest have greatly changed the people of Pakistan, Khan claimed as even the overseas Pakistanis also “thronged” Islamabad to take part in the sit-in.

Khan remarked the overseas Pakistanis were willing to channelize their money back into the country on condition that system is set right.

“It is my mission to rid the nation of fear of the oppressors. I wanted to come back to the sit-in by the morning but I heard that the government is all set to crack down on the protesters overnight. Accordingly, I rushed to the venue to stand by you at this critical juncture,” Imran Khan underlined during his early morning’s address.

    اور جب ان سے کہا جاتا ہے کہ زمین میں فساد نہ کرو تو جواب دیتے ہیں کہ ہم تو صرف اصلاح کرنے والے ہیں
    خبردار ہو! یقیناً یہی لوگ فساد کرنے والے ہیں، لیکن شعور (سمجھ) نہیں رکھتے
