Hashmi's decision to stay away from 'Azadi' march will not be in his favour: Imran

Imran says Hashmi misunderstood his statements and should have voiced his reservations

Web Desk August 13, 2014

LAHORE: In an interview with Express News programme To the Point, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan said that PTI president Javed Hashmi’s decision not participate in the ‘Azadi’ march “will not be in his favour”.

Responding to a question, Imran said that Hashmi should have voiced his reservations, adding that the PTI president misunderstood his statement regarding his refusal to accept a government of technocrats.

Last night, it was rumoured that Hashmi left for Multan owing to intra-party rifts, while earlier today, family sources confirmed that Hashmi is not going to participate in the ‘Azadi’ march.

Talking about the Lahore High Court’s decision to stop PTI from holding an “unconstitutional long march”or any “unconstitutional sit-in”, Imran said that his protests are always non-violent and peaceful.

“I have all the evidence, election was rigged,” Imran said, holding the PML-N responsible for rigging.

He said his march is a defining moment on whether people want democracy or a monarchy.
