Imran sees ex-PM’s homecoming rally as conspiracy to pressurise institutions

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday termed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s homecoming rally from Islamabad as conspiracy to put pressure on institutions.

Nawaz Sharif had been disqualified by five judges of the Supreme Court, Khan said while a addressing a joint public meeting of PTI and AML here at Liaquat Bagh.

He said that Nawaz Sharif had occupied institutions since 30 years. He had been talking against the institutions, Khan added.

While posing a challenge to the former prime minister, Imran said he can gather crowd 10 times bigger than you (Nawaz) had assembled on GT road.

He said there was a conspiracy to remove the Article 62 from the Constitution. However, he vowed to protect judiciary.

While addressing to the former minister, Khan said this is not a drama, this is ‘Naya Pakistan’.

Khan said that today only two classes are with Nawaz in the country. The first section is the one whose interests are linked with the PML-N. While citing the Abraham Lincoln’s quote, “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time”, the PTI chief said that the other class comprising a few people would soon wake up.

He recalled the Army Chief had thrice stated that the Army stands with the democracy, Constitution and institutions.

On the occasion, the PTI chief paid tribute to Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid for his nine-year struggle against corruption and political mafia.

“I had never praised anyone in my life unitll he/she deserves it,” Khan told the gathering.

Addressing the gathering, AML chief Sheikh Rashid said that Nawaz’s biggest fault was that he had ruined the national economy.

Leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and the Awami Muslim League (AML) were seen sharing a stage at the Liaquat Bagh.

A large number PTI and AML supporters had turned up on the call of Imran Khan and Sheikh Rashid for the "Azadi jalsa".
