    Rana Sanaullah says Imran Khan can't dissolve both assemblies

    By: Web Desk

    ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Saturday said PTI Chairman Imran Khan “cannot dissolve both [Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab] assemblies”.

    “Khan will not be able to decide about dissolving the assemblies,” he said during Geo News programme Naya Pakistan.

    The PML-N stalwart added that the PTI cannot do so if a no-confidence motion is moved.

    “Do they think the Opposition will sit watch?” the interior minister questioned, adding that elections should be held on time and assemblies should remain intact.

    Sanaullah also said that Khan’s decision to dissolve assemblies is his “announcement of defeat”.

    “Had [Imran Khan] marched toward Islamabad only 500,000 to one million people would have shown up. Khan decided against marching toward Islamabad as people did not arrive at the jalsa,” the minister said, stressing that the PTI chief announced to quit assemblies to avoid embarrassment.

    Khan admits he failed in bringing the powerful under the law during three years

    By: Web Desk

    PTI chief Imran Khan asked his supporters to identify the crime that toppled his government with a foreign conspiracy.

    “In the last three years, my only failure was that I couldn’t bring the powerful under the law,” he lamented, recalling that he tried hard but the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was under establishment.

    Khan told the charged crowd that NAB officials constantly told him that cases were ready but they were waiting for the order from higher-ups. “Instead of putting these thieves behind bars they signed deals with them,” he maintained.

    The former premier said that he was told to focus on the economy and forget accountability as those who had power didn’t consider corruption a bad deed.

    ‘History will attest that Khan kept fighting till the last ball’

    By: Web Desk

    Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan Saturday said that the country’s history will attest that he kept on fighting till the last ball for Pakistan.

    “I also want to say that those who saw a massive rise in their assets and trampled the nation’s rights… history is also looking towards him and writing down what he did with the country.”

    He reiterated that his party did not come to Rawalpindi for politics. Rather, Khan said it was the need of the country to have fresh elections.

    The PTI chairman boosted that whenever the elections are held his party would win them, but the issues will continue to increase as economic stability is dependent on political stability.
