ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday responded to the statements made by the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the inauguration ceremony of Sukkur-Multan motorway, by stating protestors to be agents of democracy and not terrorism.

Imran reiterated his dissatisfaction over the government’s reaction to Panama Papers’ corruption scandal in a press conference at Bani Gala. He said that the prime minister is touring different cities of the country instead of providing answers to the allegations leveled against him and his family. “Mian sahab would now prolong the issue,” he added.

Imran also showed his agreement to present himself for accountability along with the prime minister. His response to prime minister’s allegations towards protestors was that criticizing a prime minister in no way imperils democracy. Instead these protestors promote democracy. He highlighted once again his intentions of a protest march on Raiwand which is the residential area of the prime minister and his family.

The prime minister had compared the protestors to ‘terrorists’ in his speech at the ground breaking ceremony of 393-kilometer Sukkur-Multan motorway. He had condemned the rallies and protests by stating them as having the same destabilising elements as terrorist activities and that their aim is only to hinder the progress of Pakistan. He also attributed the delay in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) to the sit-in politics.
