Reiterating his stance for a solo flight, Imran Khan on Tuesday ruled out alliance with any of the parties sitting in parliament.
Talking to reporters, he said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf might negotiate with the parties which are not present in the current assemblies, but clarified that such an arrangement, if any, will be made at the time of elections.
After 15 years of struggle PTI has emerged as a party with popular support among youth. It is holding talks with Jamaat-e-Islami for cooperation in the upcoming national polls, but these negotiations have not reached any conclusion so far.
He said the ruling alliance and the opposition both are resisting change.
PTI chairman criticised the leadership of Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz for holding behind-the-scene negotiations for a caretaker set-up before elections without consulting the other parties.
“The other parties are also stakeholders. For an impartial caretaker set-up their input is equally important,” he added.
Khan said that his party was ready for polls whenever they are announced and would field ‘clean’ candidates in every constituency.
He announced a tsunami peace march to the militancy-hit Waziristan on September 23, in which he claimed 100,000 people would participate.
