LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan says that if the rulers do not obey the Supreme Court’s orders, neither will the common man, Express News reported on Tuesday.
Khan was speaking at a press conference held to announce the inclusion of Asim Zafar, son of Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) leader SM Zafar, into PTI.
He said that quitting the government in Punjab required the heart of a lion and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) did not have that kind of courage.
“Rehman Malik and the Sharif brothers are participating in reconciliatory politics,” he said, adding that Nawaz Sharif’s statement that PML-N had consulted PTI before ending the long march was untrue.
“Along with Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, the coalition partners too are expressing a lack of confidence in the Supreme Court.”
Earlier, Khan said that if the prime minister’s appeal in SC was done and the government did not accept the court’s decision, PTI would march towards Islamabad in what would be the “biggest march in the history of this country which would be led by the youth”.
He said that the tsunami would not only take away Gilani, but would also “deprive President Asif Ali Zardari of his chair”.
