ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s leader Imran Khan wants to spread anarchy in the country, France’s Euronews has reported.
The multilingual news television channel headquartered in Lyon-Ecully, France, in its report said despite the fresh bloodshed, Khan’s campaign was due to continue – culminating in moves to`close’ the whole of Pakistan later this month.
The French television channel said the anti-government protest in Pakistan turned deadly as supporters of opposition leader Imran Khan clashed with security forces and workers of the PML-N.
The report quoted the statement of the Federal Information Minister saying that Imran Khan’s plan was to henceforth “spread anarchy in the country.”
At least one person was killed and several others injured in the eastern city of Faisalabad. The report mentioned that the deadly unrest had already marked
Khan’s earlier protests in the capital Islamabad.
It said Imran Khan called for the protest, saying that this move was the first in a series targeting Pakistan’s big cities, after months of demonstrations in the capital, Islamabad.
Khan’s party, which maintains that the elections in 2013 were marred by fraud, has called for the Prime Minister’s resignation.
