Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan reiterated his stance that he would not call off sit-in at Islamabad without getting resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Addressing tens of thousands of supporters at Minar-e-Pakistan on Sunday, Khan thanked the Almighty for the massive turn out in Lahore. “I have been struggling for 18 years to awaken my nation. I am delighted to see that our nation has finally woken up,” he said.

The PTI chief said that rulers kept taking turns in power and shifted plundered money abroad.

“Our movement began with a single point about election’s probe. I have been saying since day one that we will take to streets after exercising all legal options.” “I have come to this conclusion that Pakistan’s law is a hurdle in dispensation of justice. We cannot get justice through a proper forum.”

The PTI chief said that ‘Go Nawaz Go’ slogan was following members of Sharif family wherever they went. He challenged Prime Minister Sharif to assemble only ten percent of this crowd and he would end his agitation.

“Time is over for rulers, who have been taking turns for 40 years,” he said.

He said the Supreme Court would take up Ishaq Khakwani’s petition seeking disqualification of Nawaz Sharif for lying. Nawaz Sharif denied having any agreement with Musharraf for seven years, Khan said.

He again alleged that returning officers had played the main role in rigging the elections. “Who was controlling the returning officers? Mir Jafar of Pakistan’s democracy, Iftikhar Chaudhry.” “In principle, this election should be annulled as Election Commission has not yet uploaded Farm 14 on its website.”

“I demand that ECP upload Farm 14 on website. I am sure that ECP has rigged the elections along with Iftikhar Chaudhry.”

He quoted former NADRA chief Tariq Malik saying that the whole system was deliberately sabotaged to hide rigging.

“I want to ask Nawaz Sharif why he is afraid of opening just four constituencies for probe… Unless I get justice, Nawaz Sharif government will not be able to perform,” he said.

The PTI chief said that there can be no impartial inquiry under Nawaz Sharif. “Whoever stole people’s mandate, they would be sent to jails so that nobody is able to rig elections in the future.”

He outlined his priorities after coming into power. The PTI government would bring a uniform education system across Pakistan to end the growing disparity.

“We will introduce a system of humanity through massive reforms.”

“I commend the people of Karachi for coming out in an unprecedented manner last Sunday. The contest is interesting: all parties are together to save corruption & on the other hand there is the team of your captain.”

He said that he would go to Nawaz Sharif to apologise if independent investigation proved there was no rigging.

Khan said that he would go to Mianwali on Thursday before going to Multan.
