    PTI Azadi march updates

    Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Tuesday said his party could take to the streets if justice was denied to them, and that he will announce its timeframe at Bahawalpur rally.
    He said he could dissolve the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and join hands with PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri for revolution in pursuit of justice.

    Giving interview to Express News anchor Shahzaib Khanzada on his show, To The Point, Imran said he agreed with 80% of Qadri’s ideas but disagreed with his methodology.
    He said his party too would come out to protest if its rigging complaints were not taken seriously and re-elections were not ordered in four constituencies of the National Assembly.
    “I have tried to settle the matter through dialogue but if the government does not take action we will be forced to protest”.

    Imran said his party had always tried to work for the interests of the people. “I am not afraid of anyone. If Dr Qadri is right we will support him.”

    In response to a question, Imran said that Dr Qadri had rightly predicted the last time that elections would not be transparent.
    “It was our fault, we admit. We relied on former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to hold free and fair elections but he did not come up to our expectations,” he said.

    Talking about the ongoing military operation, Zarb-e-Azb, against militants in North Waziristan, he claimed that the federal government had not informed the Khyber-Pakhtunkwa (K-P) government beforehand which had led to further chaos amongst the internally displaced people (IDPs).

    “They should have let the people prepare for the operation. No one was prepared. Even the K-P chief minister was informed after the operation had begun.”
    Imran insisted that the military operation will have its repercussions which the government will have to face in the coming days when the militants carry out their counter attacks.

    Blaming the government for the chaos, he said that despite the fact the government did not inform the K-P, the provincial government had supported their step and taken measures to facilitate them.
    Criticising the Punjab government, the PTI chief said that other provinces were readily accepting the IDPs but the province which had the most resources was turning them away.
    To another question, Imran claimed that the previous government was better than the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government.

    “The PML-N has worsened the situation in this one year of their governance. They have hiked the power tariffs, and have just added to the staggering amount of loans.”

    Re: Imran threatens to dissolve K-P Assembly

    At the end, PTI will end up the New ANP and nothing else. Imran Khan has too much lust for power and now Imran is resorting to discussions on ethnic divides to gain attention. But he is failing miserably, and people are seeing through him.

    PTI empowers chairman to dissolve K-P Assembly

    ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has empowered its chairman to direct the chief minister to dissolve the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly if the federal government did not verify votes in four constituencies of the National Assembly where the party claims electoral fraud took place in the 2013 general elections. The decision was unanimously passed on Wednesday evening.

    There had been a hue and cry in the K-P Assembly after PTI chief Imran Khan’s statement on Tuesday in which he said the assembly would be dissolved if the government did not meet the party’s demands.

    A PTI leader, who was present at the meeting, said the question of dissolution was discussed in detail on Wednesday. He added that the committee has fully empowered the party chairman to issue directives to the chief executive of the province as head of the party and therefore there is no second opinion on the matter.

    The core committee meeting was chaired by Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence. “We are demanding recount in four constituencies. We’ve submitted documentary evidence of massive rigging and are not going to accept anything less than recounting of votes,” the PTI official toldThe Express Tribune.

    The PTI has been building pressure on the government to verify votes in constituencies, particularly four National Assembly constituencies, where the party believes its mandate was stolen.

    Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has written a letter to National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq asking him to form a parliamentary committee comprising members from both houses of parliament and from every political party for electoral reforms.

    Imran Khan gives govt one month to meet his demands

    BAHAWALPUR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan while addressing the rally in Bahawalpur has said that the time to open up the four constituencies is over, Express News reported on Friday.
    He warned that the government only has one month to comply with his demands otherwise there will be a tsunami march on August 14 in Islamabad.

    “The entire Pakistan knows that the general elections were rigged,” he said.
    Khan alleged that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) declared themselves victorious at 11:20pm on the day of the elections when only 15% of the results had come.

    The PTI leader questioned why there weren’t any returning officers under the election commission of Pakistan (ECP) and what the former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was doing.
    He further questioned Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi’s role during the elections.

    IDPs

    Khan urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif not to do politics on internally displaced persons (IDPs).
    He said that Nawaz has asked him to visit the IDPs with him but there is no point of them going and taking pictures there. He further added, that if the prime minister was actually concerned he would have informed him about the operation beforehand.

    Saying that the burden of IDPs will fall on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government, Khan said that he and his government in the province could not prepare for the IDPs as they found out that the army has launched a military operation against the militants through television.
    The PTI leader said it is the country’s obligation to support the IDPs and we should not leave them stranded.
    Khan questioned why the Punjab and Sindh governments have refused to let the IDPs enter their provinces.

    Countdown begins: Imran to lead ‘tsunami march’ on August 14

    BAHAWALPUR:

    Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan upped the ante in his campaign against the government on Friday, placing four key questions before the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and setting a July 27 deadline to answer the same.
    He warned the PML-N of an impending ‘tsunami march’ on the federal capital on August 14 if those questions were left unaddressed.

    “The government should tell the nation 1.) Who scripted the victory speech of Nawaz Sharif on May 11, 2013; 2.) What was the role of caretaker Punjab chief minister Najam Sethi; 3.) What was the role of the then-chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry; and lastly why returning officers were not present under the Election Commission of Pakistan,” he told a huge public meeting of his party in the South Punjab district of Bahawalpur on Friday.

    “If these demands are not fulfilled within a month, or until July 27, then the government should brace for a ‘tsunami march’ on August 14,” he said amid thunderous applause from his supporters. He added that one million PTI supporters – including men, women and children – will attend the march.

    Until Friday, the PTI had been calling for recounting of votes in constituencies of the National Assembly where the party claims the 2013 elections were massively rigged. The government, however, didn’t address the concerns. And now Imran said the government has to answer his four questions.

    The PTI chief called upon all political parties to join the August 14 ‘tsunami march’ of his party if they believe in one-point agenda.
    Imran questioned the legitimacy of the PML-N government which, according to him, came to power through a rigged election. “The victory speech of Nawaz Sharif was aired live at 11:20pm while vote count was still ongoing. However, soon after the speech, results were changed in favour of the PML-N,” he alleged.

    The PTI chief also hit out at the former chief justice for, what he called, his role in rigging. “Chief justice sahib, people went to jail for your reinstatement. Unfortunately, I also spent eight days in the DG Khan jail for you. But you sold your conscience for making your son vice chairman of the Balochistan Investment Board,” he said.
    Nawaz has said that while the government was endeavouring to put the country on the road to progress, Imran was staging rallies and agitating against alleged rigging. The PTI chief, however, ridiculed this claim, saying public rallies should not stop the government from carrying out development work.

    Citing rampant inflation, debilitating power outages and the killing of 12 Pakistan Awami Tehreek workers by police in Lahore, Imran asked if the government would also blame the PTI for this. He added that the PML N came to power in Punjab six times – but the party couldn’t improve the education system nor could it end the ‘thana culture’.

    The PTI chief said that he was invited by Nawaz to accompany him on a visit to the IDPs camp in Bannu. “Stop doing politics in the name of IDPs, photo-ops at IDP camps is useless,” he said addressing the premier. “The government has spent/is spending millions of rupees on self-advertising. This money could be given to the IDPs who need it the most.”
    Imran said that his party’s government in K-P was not taken into confidence before the launch of the military operation in North Waziristan. “We came to know about the launch of the operation through the media,” he said. This was the reason the provincial government couldn’t make proper arrangements for the IDPs.

    “Now the responsibility is being placed on the K-P government,” he said. Imran pointed out that there were already 150,000 IDPs in K-P and 500,000 have been rendered homeless by the operation. “We accept this responsibility. K-P government, my foundation and thousands of Tabdeeli Razakaars (PTI volunteers) will help their brethren from Waziristan.”

    He also accused the PML-N government of nepotism. “The Sharif family is occupying all key posts. Nawaz is prime minister, his brother is chief minister, his daughter is managing a loan scheme for youth, one nephew is a proxy CM and another is a state minister. And you call it democracy,” he said.
    Citing a report published on their website, he said that during the Nawaz Sharif government from 85 to 92, 25,000 police officials had been recruited bypassing merit and through bribery. Surprisingly, a large number of such police officials were wanted to the police in different crimes.
    “Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has admitted that $200 billion of Pakistanis were stashed away in Swiss banks,” Imran said and asked what was stopping the government from bringing this money back to Pakistan. “They are not doing anything to bring back this money because their own black money is stashed abroad.”

    PTI Azadi march updates

    ISLAMABAD / LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has convened a meeting of his party’s core committee on July 15, to finalise the programme for the ‘long march’ the PTI plans to stage in Islamabad on Aug 14 in protest against alleged rigging in the 2013 elections.

    According to PTI spokesperson Dr Shireen Mazari, the core committee would finalise the programme after seeking suggestions from party leaders.

    She told Dawn on Sunday that the PTI was determined to hold its ‘Azadi March’ peacefully.

    Core committee will take a decision after seeking suggestions from party leaders
    The government has reportedly sent an invitation to Mr Khan to attend the official Independence Day ceremony in Islamabad, but Dr Mazari expressed ignorance about it.

    But a PTI source said the core committee would consider the invitation and decide about the party’s response to it.

    PTI’s vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in a statement that the Aug 14 march would be peaceful and there would be no change in its date.

    He warned the government not to try to stop the long march, otherwise it would itself be responsible for any situation arising out of its decision. “There will be no chance of a clash if the government does not create hurdles in the way of the long march,” he said.

    Mr Qureshi said it was the responsibility of the government to maintain peace during the march.

    He appealed to the PTI workers to reach Islamabad on Aug 14 by crossing all hurdles.

    Meanwhile, Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq at a news conference in Lahore urged Imran Khan not to turn the Independence Day into a day of agitation.

    “Indulging in politics at a time when the country is fighting a war will do more harm than good,” said the minister at the hurriedly-called news conference at the Lahore Press Club.

    He urged the PTI chief to change the date of his long march. “Pakistan’s Independence Day celebrations date back when both Mr Khan and I were not born. This year too August 14 will not be merely an event of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. We will extend an invitation to Mr Khan and other political leaders to enthusiastically take part in the Independence Day celebrations.”

    He said everybody should fly national flag on August 14 all over the country instead of those of their respective parties to boost the morale of the defenders of our motherland.

    No kind of distractions or obstacles from this government can hinder King Khan of achieving his goals, and having this long march.

    This government is not only incompetent, but corrupt to its core. It has failed to honour any of its promises, and the economy is worsening, circular debt as high as ever; electricity outages more. Sucking up to India. We have to pressure them, without pressure, they will bring this country down.

    PTI to seek other parties’ support for march

    ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has decided to seek the support of other parties in the opposition for its proposed Aug 14 march.

    The PTI’s core committee held an extensive session at the residence of party chief Imran Khan in Banigala late on Tuesday night.



    PML-N to let PTI go ahead with march


    A majority of the party’s leaders, according to a participant of the meeting, believed that “moral support” of other parties, particularly the PPP, would strengthen the PTI’s hand in its demand for electoral reforms and for investigation into its claims of fraud in the May 2013 general elections.

    The leadership welcomed former president Asif Ali Zardari’s statement in which he supported PTI’s demand for recount of votes and held up its right to hold demonstrations for electoral reforms. Even verbal support from the PPP for the long march will be a huge boost for PTI, they observed.

    However, a source in the party said Imran Khan agreed to a suggestion that PPP be requested to “at least endorse the cause” for which the PTI had decided to take to the streets.

    “The PTI can gather people on its own and put up a good show, but moral support of other political parties for the long march can be a game-changer,” said a senior PTI leader.

    During the meeting, it was also decided to get in touch with some other parties, e.g. Jamaat-i-Islami, MQM, ANP and PAT, for forging a broad consensus on electoral reforms. The PML-Q has already assured PTI of its support for the rally.

    In reply to a question whether the PTI intended to use the long march as a platform for launching a movement against the PML-N government, a senior member of the PTI said a majority of the party leaders were in favour of pressing the government to use “legal course of action to address our concerns”.”

    During the meeting, PTI leaders deliberated upon alternatives in case the government tried to place obstacles before the march. Imran Khan will lead the marchers from Lahore on the morning of Independence Day. “In case of any hurdle created by the Punjab government, the PTI’s leaders from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will take over charge and reach Islamabad,” he said.

    However, sources in the PML-N said the government had decided to allow PTI to go ahead with its plan as long as the participants were peaceful and didn’t create any law and order situation.

    Since Islamabad’s D-Chowk has been dug-up for the proposed metro bus project, a sitting PTI member of the National Assembly said, the party’s leadership was considering various options about the final destination of the march.

    The PTI assigned its leaders the task of mobilising people from areas of their influence. For example, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Javed Hashmi were asked to bring workers from southern Punjab while Sarwar Khan, an MNA, will be pushing his supporters in Taxila to join the march.

    Office bearers of the party at all levels were asked to regularly hold Iftar dinners and engage as many people as they can from different walks of life to ensure their participation in the march.

    IK should focus and concentrate his energies on improving the KPK. The nation is literally at war and he needs to focus on priorities.
