I have burnt all bridges and will not turn back, says Imran

ISLAMABAD: In an exclusive interview with Express News anchor Shahzab Khanzada, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said he has burnt all bridges and would not turn back from his demands.

Terming Parliament “illegitimate”, Imran said he would stage a peaceful protest in front of Parliament House.

“I do not want people and the police to clash, which is why I will lead the march into the Red Zone myself,” Khan reiterated.

Claiming that the police is on his side and would not harm him, Imran warned, “If any Gullu Butt tries to create violence, we will not spare Nawaz Sharif.”

Further, Imran said he is putting pressure on the government after thorough deliberation.

Responding to a question on whether the PTI chief would accept the resignation of only Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Imran echoed his constant demand that both Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz would have to step down.

Urging Nawaz to listen to him and resign, Imran warned the premier that the crowd is charged and would not spare him.

Calling Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah Nawaz's "private secretary", Imran said Shah is not playing the role of opposition.

Shah is on the committee formed by the government to hold talks with the PTI. However, the PTI chief has refused to hold talks till the prime minister resigns.
