Ready to talk to anyone for the country and democracy: Imran Khan
Lahore: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he is ready to talk to anyone for the sake of the country and democracy. In his tweet, Khan said, “I am ready to talk to anyone and make any sacrifice, except for ‘thieves and robbers’, in the interest of the country, progress and democracy.” Didn’t violate law but still have 85 cases registered against me. If someone proves the violation of law in these cases, I will quit politics. Describing former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as a fugitive, he said that he is not returning to Pakistan due to the fear of going to jail.
“Even if you put me in jail, the people of Pakistan will give you (Mr Sharif) a welcome that you will remember for life,” he said. The Pakistan government wants elections to be held in my absence to ensure that thieves and dacoits win and remain in the government. Khan said he believed in the supremacy of law and would appear in court on March 18. Responding to a question about the absence of PTI chairman Parvez Elahi for a few days, he said that Elahi is infected with the corona virus.
Responding to Khan’s stand, PTI’s Central Information Secretary Farooq Habib said that he (Mr Khan) is ready to talk about free and fair elections, not corruption. It may be noted that in the Toshakhana case, Khan has been absent from the court proceedings several times due to which an arrest warrant has been issued against him and he has been asked to appear before the court on March 18.
