PTI to exercise political muscle in Karachi today


The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will flex its political muscles in Karachi’s Nishtar Park on Tuesday (today).

All arrangements have been finalised for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Pakistan Zindabad rally.

In the rally today, Khan will likely raise the issue of lawlessness and political chaos in Sindh after the exiled founder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) made anti-Pakistan statements last month from his residence in London.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s alleged corruption in the country and the Panamagate Scandal is also going to be the focus of his speech.


Speaker Ayaz Sadiq yesterday had rejected a reference filed by Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Shaikh Rasheed, requesting to qualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the Panamagate Sandal.

However, the speaker approved another disqualification reference filed against the PTI chief and later sent it to the Election Commission.

Khan said that his party would continue to protest on the roads until justice was served on the Panamagate Scandal.

“To everyone’s surprise, a reference was moved against me in the National Assembly while a dacoit was saved,” Khan told reporters in Karachi late Monday.

He said the prime minister was destroying state institutions in a bid to justify his black money, he earned through illegal means.

Earlier, PTI spokesman Naeem-ul-Haq said that Khan has cancelled his Nathia Gali visit to participate in the protest staged by steel mills workers, who are seeking salary raise.

Imran Khan has said if their four questions were not answered before Eid-ul-Adha, they will march towards Raiwind.

While addressing a rally at Lahore’s Charing Cross, Khan said, “You must tell us how the money was transferred abroad, was it transferred through banks or was it laundered.”

He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s name must be put on Exit Control List (ECL) as he feared that the prime minister might run away from the country.

Imran Khan’s four questions are:

  • If you spoke the truth then produce solicitor’s letter when you bought those London flats?
  • Where did the money come from to buy those properties?
  • How did you send the money from Pakistan?
  • Did you pay tax on this money?

The PTI demonstrated in Punjab’s political capital, Lahore, to demand to hold the ruling Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) accountable for their alleged assets revealed in the Panama Papers.

Earlier in his address to rally participants at Shahdara, Imran Khan lashed out at the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Khan said Nawaz Sharif wanted to escape accountability and was playing with the nation’s future.
