Imran demands govt accept PTI resignations
22 October, 2014
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday urged the government to accept resignations of PTI lawmakers immediately, saying he does not accept this 'fake parliament'.
After PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri announced an end to his sit-in in Islamabad on Tuesday, Imran reiterated his commitment to continue his protest until resignation of the prime minister, a private TV channel reported.
Addressing his supporters from his container in Islamabad, Kaptaan directed PTI Additional Secretary General Saifullah Niazi to ask all PTI Khyber Pakhtunkhwa legislators, who have failed to declare their assets, to submit details of their assets to the Election Commission of Pakistan immediately.
By not declaring their assets, the legislators were breaching the PTI's principled position on declaration of assets and this would not be tolerated, said the PTI chief.
The PTI chairman said that PTI would stage protests in all district headquarters against rising electricity tariff. The skipper said that the government withdrew electricity prices fearing PTI protests.
He announced that the PTI would go to Supreme Court against the failure of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to upload Form 14 and 15.
"One and a half year has passed, PTI is yet to get justice regarding May 11, 2013 elections," he lamented.
