Imran Khan not to be arrested: Latif



Federal Minister Mian Javed Latif on Tuesday called for the collective efforts to bring an end to mischief of PTI’s leadership for ensuring economic and political stability, which was crucial to the country’s progress and development. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan would not be arrested for holding public rallies, but no such step would be allowed which might jeopardize political and economic stability of the country, he said while addressing ‘Meet the Press Programme’ here at the National Press Club.

He recalled that the it was started in 2014 when the Chinese President expected to visit Pakistan. Had the action against Imran Khan taken at that time, the situation would have been quite different, he added. Javed said he was not in support of the cases being registered against the PTI leadership on the pretext of Masjid-e-Nabvi incident. —NNI
