Will beat Nawaz in his own constituency, says Imran



Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson Imran Khan vowed on Tuesday to defeat PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif in “his own constituency” as the party resumed its ‘Haqeeqi Azadi March’ on Day 5 from Gujranwala.

“Nawaz Sharif, I challenge you, when you come back, I will beat you in your own constituency,” said Imran in his first speech of the day.

PTI chief Imran Khan has fired broadsides at Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari in his first speech on day five of his march to Islamabad.

“Nawaz Sharif I challenge you: when you come back, I will beat you in your constituency!” he thundered to cheers in Gujranwala.

In his first address of the day in Gujranwala, Imran also told former president and PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari to “get ready” for his arrival in Sindh.

“I am coming after you to Sindh,” he said, adding that the “people of Sindh needed freedom the most”. Imran has said the time for true freedom is here and “we will attain it through justice. We will fight for the supremacy of the law and justice”.

“Pakistanis, this system cannot continue. We will have to change it. When it is asked who will save Pakistan, Imran Khan isn’t the answer. It is you who will save Pakistan and set it free. He also warned PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif that once he returned to the country, “we will take you to Adiala jail straight from the airport”.

Addressing the media, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry criticised the government for increased security measures in the federal capital and claimed the government had deployed at least 30,000 security personnel and released a large sum of funds to deal with the party’s march.

He said the government was not “dealing with an enemy nation and they are your people”.—INP
