Khan says won’t force any trader to close shop


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said his party was all set to flex its muscle in Faisalabad on Dec 8 but he assured businessmen that his party would not force any person to close their shops.

“We will not force anyone into shutting their businesses as PTI doesn’t believe in mongering anarchy. All those who believe that all is well should keep their shutters up,” said Khan while addressing his party workers at the daily sit-in camp.

Khan reiterated that his “Plan C” would continue until a judicial commission started investigating the alleged vote fraud in last year’s general elections.

The PTI chief repeated his allegations against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, claiming that the premier had built his business empire by abusing his authority during various stints in power.

“When Sharif was finance minister, he set up sugar and steel mills and after becoming prime minister the number of his industries reached 17. He also got loans written off,” said Khan.
