LAHORE: Former Prime Minister and Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan, has stressed the need for Rule of Law, saying the latter was necessary for the progress and prosperity of the nation, ARY News reported on Saturday .
According to details, the former prime minister made these remarks during a meeting with Insaf Lawyers Wing at his residence in Zaman Park, Lahore. Several lawyers announced to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) during the meeting.
Imran Khan argued that the rule of law was key to ensuring good governance in the country, urging lawyers to create awareness about the supremacy of the rule of law among the people of Pakistan.
He noted that there is an absolute need for the rule of law to prevail in Sindh and Balochistan, asking the lawyers to prepare themselves for legal and constitutional struggle.
The PTI chief also slammed the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) for “housing” the local government (LG) elections, saying all major political parties have reservations about the results of the local polls.
“The PPP has ruined Sindh province with its corruption,” he said, criticizing the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for not taking “any action against rigging”.
Speaking about the Wazirabad attack, Imran Khan alleged that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and another person were involved in the assassination attempt.
“They have started a vilification campaign against me on social media,” he said, adding that PML-N vice-chairman Maryam Nawaz and Marriyum Aurangzeb made “false” allegations in the press conferences.
Earlier in January, Imran Khan said his political party’s vote bank would not be affected by his ban as people would vote for his party’s narrative.
Imran Khan while talking to senior journalists said that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has failed to deliver to Pakistanis on all fronts. He directly blamed Finance Minister Ishaq Dar for the intensity of the crises.
He said voices were being raised within the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). “I still have a lot of cards to surprise PDM. The dissolution of the Punjab Assembly was a brilliant blow against the PDM that will be remembered for decades.”
