ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that only Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be responsible if a ‘third power’ steps in as a result of the PTI’s November 2 lockdown of Islamabad. The party has said the upcoming protest is for the premier’s ‘resignation or accountability’ following Panamagate.
Speaking to journalists here on Sunday, the PTI chief said, in a reference to Nawaz Sharif, that only “one person will be responsible if democracy is derailed.”
He did not mention which force or institution would be derailing democracy following the protest but clarified that, “We [PTI] are not doing this to bring in a ‘third power’.”
“Why is a protest happening? Nawaz Sharif isn’t presenting himself for accountability,” he added.
“Protest is the PTI’s democratic right. The government will have to bear a severe loss if it tries to stop us.”
Speaking further, Imran Khan accused the government of defaming the Army.
Meanwhile, schedule for Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) warm-up rally in Islamabad has been issued. Imran Khan will held a whirlwind tour of 16 various areas of capital on October 29.
