Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday warned of a “bloody revolution”. Addressing his party’s anti-government sit-in at D-Chowk, he said that the government should stop harassment of his party workers or else there will be a confrontation. “Peaceful protest is our democratic and constitutional right and no one can deny us that right,” he added.
The PTI chief further said that if anyone thinks he is a terrorist, he should prove his claims in a court of law, adding the government is making all-out efforts to implicate him in a “fabricated” case but it must know that he would emerge victorious as his hands are clean. Imran said that it is always the individuals and not the crowds who usher in revolutions. “If you have an ideology you can turn around things and for that purpose what you need is honesty and commitment with your people,” he maintained.
He reiterated that a person can not become a true leader unless he is not honest, adding the credibility, truthfulness and honesty are the perquisites for becoming a great leader. “Leaders like Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari cannot bring revolutions as they’re into politics to boost their businesses,” he lamented. The PTI leader said that US carried out drone attacks in tribal areas of Pakistan, accusing the government of encouraging Americans carry out drone strikes.
He said the reason why Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif have ignored the people of Pakistan is because they are selfish. And leaders like Sharifs, he added, are there to make profit in the name of development schemes. Imran once again burst out at government for declaring him a proclaimed offender. “If they can declare me a PO what else they can do with a common man who can not raise voice against them. These leaders want to make the whole nation a slave and a slave can never speak for his rights,” he added.
He claimed that both Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari are busy in holding a meeting in London to disrupt the PTI jalsa on November 30, but no power of the world can stop us from making a ‘New Pakistan’. “I have been telling since long that the change has already come. The people know what their rights are and the ‘go Nawaz go’ slogan has reached every nook and corner of the country [and] the dawn of a new Pakistan is about to break,” he added.
