PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Saturday said that he will never accept the “imported government” led by the “corrupt elite” even if it means sacrificing his life.
The PTI chief, while addressing a press conference, said that during last week’s long march, the police brutally tortured his party workers and supporters despite supreme court’s orders against raising any obstacles on their way, adding that his party will raise the government’s brutal oppression on all forums and will seek legal help over the recent ban on protests by the “imported government”.
The former PM said that his party is moving Supreme Court of Pakistan seeking the top court’s opinion on whether people of a democratic country’s right to protest can be curtailed or not?. The PTI chief also decided to challenge two of the government’s recent decisions i.e. reversing voting rights of overseas Pakistanis and making amendments to NAB ordinance, which he claimed are taken with malafide intentions.
He was of the view that the “corrupt” and “fascist” lot has taken over the country and it is now upon the state institutions to save the country for if the country goes towards total destruction “they will be responsible”.
On Petrol Prices And Buying Oil from Russia
The PTI chief started his presser by criticising the “imported government” over raising prices of petroleum products and claimed that the government did it on pressure from IMF for “beggars cannot be choosers”.
He maintained that his government was about to buy oil from Russia on reduced rates to give relief to the people of Pakistan but was “ousted as punishment over maintaining an independent foreign policy”.
