Khan says ‘days of martial law are gone’

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday stressed the need to strengthen democracy in the country, saying the days of martial law in Pakistan were over.

“Days of martial law are gone,” the PTI chief said, adding that it is no democracy if the head of a nation considers himself above the law.

He said that the Panama Papers investigation would help strengthen democracy in the country.

“I should be held accountable on the same terms of reference as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif,” Imran Khan said.

He added that none of his party’s demands called for the imposition of martial law in the country.

Speaking about the deadly terrorist attack in Quetta which left over 70 dead and more than 100 injured, the PTI chief said that blame cannot be assigned to anyone until sufficient information is available.

Imran Khan proposed that police be made apolitical to improve the security situation in the country.

He further said that the National Action Plan needs to be fully implemented to counter terrorist elements in the country.
