PTI invites MWM’s leadership to August 14 protest, Imran Khan slams Nawaz Sharif

PESHAWAR/ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has said there was a monarchy in Pakistan in the name of democracy which would be brought down on August 14.
He said that Nawaz Sharif went abroad as the country entered a difficult phase.
Speaking at ceremony on Tuesday, Khan came down heavily on the Nawaz government, saying the Nandipur Power project was closed three months after its inauguration and despite advertisement campaign.
He not only accused federal government of trying to fail the KPK government over the issue of IDPS but also urged Chief Minister Pervez Khattak to stay firm against the federal government in getting the provincial rights.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Vice Chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) met with the Nasir Abbas, Secretary General of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen Pakistan (MWMP) and invited him to join the August 14 Long March on Tuesday.
Speaking with the media in a joint press conference Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that PTI’s policy and ideology is in sync with MWMP. Imran Khan has invited all those political parties that are against election rigging and support reforms in the election system to join PTI in the Long March, said Qureshi. He denied any contact with Khursheed Shah regarding Long March and said that he has not assured him anything since the Core Committee has the authority to take such decisions. He doesn’t have any confidential connections with anybody including Tahir ul Qadri, said Qureshi.
Raja Nasir Abbas welcomed the invitation to join Long March and pledged his full support. He said that he can foresee some serious risks for the government in the month of August, adding that all the opposition parties will protest against the government. Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen Pakistan, Muslim League-Q, Sunni Itehad Council and Awami Tehreek will protest against the government and political activists from these four parties will come out from all around the country, said Nasir Abbas. The government has failed and in revenge they are attacking the political workers of MWMP, he added.
