LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan said Wednesday that Malik Riaz had turned Pakistan into an auction house.
Speaking to the media at the Lahore airport, Khan called on Malik Riaz to swear on the Quran and reveal the names of judges, politicians, generals and journalists who were on his payroll.
“At one hand there is an independent judiciary while on the other there is the political mafia and those who support the status quo and do not want change in Pakistan,” Khan said when asked about developments relating to the Supreme Court.
In reply to a question regarding the memo case, Khan said that President Asif Ali Zardari was responsible for the memorandum because he was the one who had appointed Husain Haqqani as ambassador.
Khan also sent a message to the Sharif brothers accusing them of protecting Zardari and scaring the people regarding democracy being in danger. “I want to tell those sitting in Raiwand that there will be no Martial Law nor will the Army be called in.”
Khan added that the solution to the country’s problems was free and fair elections which could not be held in the presence of President Zardari.
