Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Friday said that those involved in vote rigging would be brought to justice through an enquiry by a judicial commission. Addressing his supporters at Nursery, Shahrah-e-Faisal, Imran said that his party would step up pressure on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Imran said that he sees “the real democracy” and a “Naya Pakistan” in near future as people of his country have woken up from a deep slumber and fighting for their legitimate rights.
Law and merit will be supreme in ‘Naya Pakistan’, he said. Imran assured the crowd that a judicial commission will be formed anytime soon and there will be fresh elections in the country. PTI chief thanked his workers for remaining peaceful throughout the day’s protest. He also paid thanks to traders and labourers, for their cooperation to make the shutdown call a successful. “The shutdown will definitely pressurise the government to be serious towards people’s demand,” Imran says.
“My apologies for the financial loss that today’s protest has caused, but we have much bigger objective to achieve that is to change the destiny of Pakistan,” Imran said. “Lahore will also be blocked in a similar manner,” Imarn warned. Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Vice Chairman of PTI said that the party would consider whether or not it should call off its protest only after a judicial commission is formed. He appreciated the role of Sindh government for taking no adverse action against the protesters, saying “unlike Faisalabad, there were no Gullu Butts in Karachi.”
A few minutes before Imran Khan’s arrival at Nursary, PTI leader Asad Umar said Karachi has not witnessed a shutdown for the furst time, but it is for the first time in the history of Karachi that children and women have come out to protest for “a Naya Pakistan.”
