Imran must learn to do politics sans crutches



Federal Minister for Climate Change, Senator Sherry Rehman on Monday said Imran Khan wanted to sit outside the parliament and come to power with the help of institutions as he had been accustomed to the ‘crutches’ but he would now have to learn and do politics without others’ support.

In a series of tweets on her official Twitter account, the Federal Minister lambasted the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief for his appeals to the new Army Chief to intervene in politics. Sherry Rehman wrote, “Imran Khan’s appeal to the new army chief to interfere in political matters is condemnable. No democratic politician invites institutions to interfere in politics. He has been asking institutions to intervene in his favour. Imran Khan should keep the new army chief out of his political narrative.” She mentioned that the political parties come to power by popular vote and exercise popular authority in the parliament.—INP
