LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that holding protests is his party's constitutional and democratic right and no one can stop it from doing so. He said he and his party want to put democracy back on track and strengthen it through the Islamabad protest of May 11.

In an interview on Sunday, the PTI chief alleged that the government had been hesitant in holding an inquiry into alleged rigging in the general elections of the last year, from the day one.

Imran said that after having failed to get justice from the Election Commission of Pakistan and other institutions, his party was left with no option but to come on roads. He said the PTI has always talked of strengthening democracy and state institutions, and the May 11 protest movement is aimed at exposing those who "usurped people's mandate through rigging".

Imran Khan vowed to continue protests till the people involved in the rigging are held accountable. He said that until and unless the elections are completely free and transparent, real democracy cannot be imagined in the country.

In reply to a question, Imran Khan said the biggest danger to the present government is "its own failed policies". He was of the view that despite one year in office, the government could not resolve a single issue.
