Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said people in Pakistan will celebrate and distribute sweets if the military takes over, unlike what happened in Turkey.

“People will celebrate the military take over in Pakistan. The democracy here is threatened by Nawaz Sharif’s monarchy, not military,” he said while addressing at political demonstration in Islam Garh, Azad Kashmir ahead of elections in the valley on July 21.

Imran said the Turkish masses took to the roads and streets against the attempted coup because their president served his people.

“Erdogan served his people, paid off their country’s debts, and constructed hospitals. That is why people supported him against the military.”

He lambasted PM Nawaz for ‘keeping mum’ over the Panamagate controversy.

“We demand PM Nawaz to let us know here he got the money from to have offshore assets, but he does not answer us."

“Sure, do not reply. Neither did Saddam answer his people nor Qaddafi,” he added, referring to the slain leaders of Iraq and Libya respectively whose rules were overthrown in brutal civil war.

Urging the people of Azad Kashmir to vote for his party, the PTI chairman said Pakistan should be strengthened in order to pressure India in favour of the held valley's freedom.
