PTI ready to face PML-N, PPP in next elections: Imran
ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan Monday said that his party was ready to face both PML-N and PPP in the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking at a news conference at PTI Central Secretariat on the occasion of Tashfeen Safdar’s joining of PTI, he said that the motives of both parties were similar, adding both have to form a caretaker government.
He said that both parties will become coalition partners in the upcoming elections.
Imran Khan, lashing out at the PML-N, said that the party was playing a dual game, adding first it enjoyed power for three years and then separated and became part of the opposition.
He alleged that Nisar and Nawaz came into power due to the military. He further said that the Supreme Court should take notice of money given by the ISI to other politicians.
He claimed that he had not received a single penny, saying he will quit politics if it was proved that he was paid by the ISI.
To a question regarding Maulana Fazalur Rehman’s opposition for the resumption of Nato supplies, he said that he was the only person who has played “Noora Kushti” at a greater level then anyone else has ever played.
He said during the Musharraf era, Fazalur Rehman was apart of a friendly opposition and after that became the right hand of President Asif Zardari.
He further said that PML-N has secretly agreed to restore Nato supplies. Imran Khan said that the war on terror it was not our war, adding that billions of dollars have been spent and Pakistan has rendered sacrifices of thousands of lives.
When speaking about the head money announced by the US on Hafiz Saeed, he said everyone has complete confidence in the Supreme Court. He said it was common practise that if someone’s crime was unproven, he could not be declared a criminal.
Imran Khan said that announcing head money for Hafiz Saeed was wrong, adding any sovereign country does not allow this kind of move.
