If army has decided to stay neutral then who is stopping them from holding transparent polls, questions PTI chief

PTI Chairperson Imran Khan has said that his movement for haqeeqi azadi (real freedom) will continue for the next 10 months as he resumed the party’s long march from Gujranwala on Day 6.

“Nobody should think our movement will end in Islamabad, it will continue for the next 10 months until we don’t have elections,” the former premier said while addressing the long march participants on Wednesday.

Imran also asserted that he would not accept the incumbent government “at any cost” and would rather die than “bow down before these thieves [ruling parties]”.

“I have reached to this point after a struggle of 26 years in politics but all other politicians were born in the ‘military nursery’. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was Ayub Khan’s minister for eight years and Nawaz Sharif became the prime minister of the country while installing iron bars in the house of General Jilani,” he added.

Imran also raised the question that who wanted to silence slain journalist Arshad Sharif, saying who is threatening the journalist community of the country.

The deposed premier said that he tried his best to punish the “thieves” who had looted the country for 30 years but there were some “secret hands” that managed to save the culprits.

“We could not do anything because NAB was not in my hands. Those who were controlling NAB saved these thieves,” he added.

The PTI chief said that if the army has decided to stay neutral then who is stopping them from holding transparent elections in the country?

He said the people of Pakistan need to “stand up for their rights”.
