ISLAMABAD: Makhdoom Javed Hashmi, former president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and veteran politician, on Sunday said, PTI chief Imran Khan was in the habit of taking solo flights, keeping the entire central leadership in the dark.

"I tried my best to remove the shortcomings in the PTI as I could not sit dumb and deaf over the overtures taken by Imran Khan," the seasoned politician said during a media interview.

Lambasting the PTI chairman for making the entire party leadership hostage over his self-driven wishes and the sit-in fiasco, Hashmi reiterated that Imran had himself divulged information about his meeting with Pakistan Awami Tehreek chief Dr Tahirul Qadri in London.

"When I said that if such things would happen then the path would be paved for martial law in the country, Imran told me that the PML-N government would be packed before their march to Islamabad," he added.

Hashmi said Imran was confident that if they staged a sit-in, the Chief Justice of Pakistan would initiate suo motu proceedings against the government, pack it and establish a government of technocrats.

He said the main objective behind the sit-in was not to obtain the Prime Minister's resignation, but to press forth the demand of setting up an impartial election commission, adding that Imran did not take the party leadership into confidence over any such demand.
