Imran Khan terms Lahore rally ‘referendum’ against govt

lahoreLAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Sunday termed his Lahore rally a ‘referendum’ against the government. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should delay his resignation so that PTI’s movement can have enough time to penetrate every house,  reported.

Addressing a public rally at Minar-e-Pakistan ground in Lahore, Khan said that he struggled for eighteen hours to awaken the nation, adding that God has answered his prayers to awaken the nation.

He said the rulers thought PTI will end its sit-in protest soon but the sit-in movement has created a ‘world record’ by stretching the sit-in for as long as forty five days and counting.

Khan said that no one raises voice over injustice, adding that he has seen a time when no one stood up against oppression and injustice.

PTI chief said he protested when former president Asif Ali Zardari assumed the presidential post. He said he was the first one to take to streets to raise voice for the missing persons’ plight.

He said when Dr Aafia Siddiqui was handed over to the United States (US), he raised voice to ‘awaken’ the nation.

Imran Khan said that all the political parties have joined hands to protect the looted money and not the democracy.

He said the real faces of those who made speeches at Parliament’s joint session have been exposed.

“Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari are fooling the nation together”, he alleged.

“I kept saying these two are like brothers from inside and are only staging fight as a show off but no one listened.”
