Will consult with party to make decision on resignation: Imran Khan


Lahore, Jan. 17 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday gave clue to be resigned from assemblies.

Addressing to joint opposition parties rally under umbrella of Tahir-ul-Qadri, Imran said, “I would consult with my party and then make a decision to resign from the National Assembly seat”

Rasheed earlier himself announced to resign as Parliamentarian.

Khan accused the Punjab government of deliberately killing protesters during the Model Town mayhem in Lahore in June, 2014.

“The Model Town incident was a deliberate act,” Imran told supporters.

“I watched on the television how the police opened fire at unarmed [PAT] protesters,” he said.

Earlier today, PAT kicked off its campaign, mainly demanding resignations of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah for their alleged involvement in the deaths of 14 political workers in June, 2014.

Imran went on to add that both the Sharif brothers were fascists and didn’t have any interest in democracy. “The victims of Model Town tragedy are still far from receiving justice.”

According to him, incidents of rape and murder in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were being falsely compared.

“Unlike the Punjab government that didn’t take any action when the Kasur scandal emerged, K-P ensured swift action to address the problem and coordinate with the victims.”
