LAHORE: Thanking Tahirul Qadri for inviting Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) to join his long march, PTI Chairman Imran Khan reiterated his stance of putting protests on hold until the caretaker setup was formed.
Imran said this while presiding over a party meeting on Wednesday held to review the offer made by Qadri.
“Protests will only help the government in the current scenario,” he said.
Imran also said that immediate free and fair elections under a neutral caretaker government was the only way out of the current crisis.
“Early elections have become even more necessary because of the constitutional crisis in Balochistan, the overall deteriorating law and order situation, Indian aggression on the Line of Control and the anger prevailing in the nation,” Imran was quoted in a press release.
The party leaders added that the PTI’s seven point agenda was a road map to free and fair election.
“PTI members should be ready for a tsunami march in case conditions are not created for an election that will be accepted by everybody,” the statement further said.
Expressing his fears of back door dealings for the formation of interim setup, Imran said any such move would be resisted with the power of the people.
