ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday the face of democracy had been defaced by the inclusion of “criminals” in the federal cabinet and renewed his call for early elections, because an “imported government cannot run the country”.
He also claimed that the PTI jalsa at Minar-i-Pakistan, to be held on Thursday (today), would make history.
While chairing the meeting of PTI’s central leadership, former prime minister Imran Khan said several members of the newly announced federal cabinet were facing different cases.
An “imported government” could not run the country and the economy would suffer due to the ongoing uncertainty, he said, and insisted that general elections should be announced without any delay.
Meanwhile, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Sardar Tanveer Ilyas and Awami Muslim League (AML) head Sheikh Rashid Ahmed also held separate meetings with Mr Khan. Mr Ilyas in his meeting with Mr Khan thanked him for his support to become the AJK’s premier.
