Imran Khan asks people to take to streets for their rights

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan Sunday said he knows it would be difficult but there is no other way left for the people rather than taking to streets to claim their rights.

Addressing a press conference here, Imran Khan, however, apologized to the people of Faisalabad where he has given a shutter-down strike call for Monday.

“We even stepped back from our earlier demand of Prime Minister’s resignation,” he said reiterating his call for constitution of a judicial commission to undertake a probe into the alleged rigging in the elections of 2013.

He said those who played a role in carrying out the ‘rigging’ be brought to book.

Imran Khan warned that if the system allowed to continue as it is then the next elections will also be rigged.

On the appointment of Justice (retd) Sardar Raza as the Chief Election Commissioner, the PTI chief said he had no objection on his induction as he (Justice Raza) has good reputation.

However, he said the four members of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should step down from their offices and called for reconstitution of the electoral body under Justice Sardar Raza.

Pervez Rashid says Monday will be business as usual for Faisalabad

Later, Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Senator Pervez Rashid said there will be business as usual in Faisalabad on Monday (December 8), the day for which strike call was given for the city by Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
“Children will go to their schools and shops will remain open tomorrow,” Pervez Rashid said while addressing a press conference here.
