ISLAMABAD- Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan today parted ways with Javed Hashmi, saying PTI wouldn’t lead a protest march and stage sit-in for 17 days if it was to come through the martial law.
Imran Khan said, he is very disappointed from PTI president Javed Hashmi. PTI chairman announced that he separates his way from Javed Hashmi. “I never take dictations from anyone and Mr. Hashmi knows it very well,” he said.
Khan explained that he decided to march toward Prime Minister House after Tahir ul Qadri assured that there would be no violence. “Had I relied upon martial law, I would have done it a long ago,” he said.
He also revealed that Javed Hashmi was the only one who refused to join Independence march with Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT)’s revolution march. Imran Khan further said, he ousted three Member National Assembly (MNA) from the party on not presenting their resignations.
The PTI chief had ruled out any further talks with the government in the wake of deadly police crackdown on peaceful protesters.
The PTI chairman urged his supporters to gear up for crackdown from government. He claimed that 20 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in police shelling on demonstrators. “We will lodge an FIR against Nawaz Sharif and “Field Martial’ Chaudhry Nisar,” he added.
