LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has warned that his party could launch a long march to protect the independence of the judiciary and chief justice if the situation warranted.
Talking to the media at the Allama Iqbal Airport on Friday before leaving for France, Imran reiterated that a mafia was working on a conspiracy to destroy the independent judiciary and PTI would stand by the judiciary and chief justice.
Imran remarked that Malik Riaz and people like him think that they could get any job done by bribing some individuals. He claimed that the PTI would root out such elements from the society.
He said no corrupt practice could be done in the presence of an independent NAB and judiciary, adding that corrupt elements were sitting among the ranks of the government.
Meanwhile, visiting executive chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, met with PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Secretary General Dr Arif Alvi and Information Secretary Shafqat Mahmood. They discussed prospects of using electronic and social media platforms in
Pakistan, besides technological help needed in conducting free and fair elections in Pakistan.
