PTI Chairman Imran Khan Saturday asked the country’s institutions if he was the only one left who has taken a stand against corruption.
Addressing a jalsa at the federal capital’s Parade Ground after leading a rally from Rawalpindi, the former prime minister asked: “Can the institutions not see the corrupt people ruining the country?”
“My question to the country’s institutions is how did you allow these thieves to rule the country? Don’t you understand a country gets destroyed when you put thieves in power?” asked the PTI leader.
The PTI chairman told his supporters that he did not come out to fight the institutions or spread anarchy, but to tell everyone that the nation will not accept the “imported government”.
The former prime minister said that he called off his protest against the coalition government May 26 because he knew no one would come out after what transpired during the “Azadi March”.
Talking about the clashes that took place between the police and the party supporters during the long march, Khan said that he knew that there would be anarchy if he took to the streets.
“I knew there would be anarchy that evening and people would have come face to face with the police and the rangers,” he claimed. “The nation, the police and the rangers are mine. I don’t want to spread anarchy within my nation. I had set out just for one slogan imported government unacceptable.”
“I had set out for one reason, and that was to [show] all the institutions where nation is standing and what it wants and that it will never accept these thieves,” claimed the PTI chairman.
