Imran Khan says no more talks till PM Nawaz quits office

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman, Imran Khan Tuesday announced to suspend the ongoing dialogue with the government and linked its resumption to the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resignation.

In his speech to the participants of his party’s sit-in outside the Parliament on the 12th days, Imran Khan said there was no more room for continuation of talks with the government and that he would make public the course of PTI’s future line of action in the evening today.
He said if Nawaz Sharif continued to remain the PM, he would issue threats to the ex-senior Election Commission member Azfal Khan and force him to leave the country.

Imran Khan dispelled the impression that PTI led the march into Islamabad at the army’s behest. He also said that he would make an important announcement later today.

“We have reached a tipping point and if we returned now the past will repeat itself,” he asserted.

He said in a bid to buy him off a suggestion was also floated to make him deputy Prime Minister.

The PTI chief said all the available legal avenues were tried over the past 14 months to get justice but to no avail.

“We are demanding the Prime Minister’s resignation because his continuing to stay in office will make it impossible for us to get justice,” he argued.
