ISLAMABAD: Distancing himself from PTI chief Imran Khan, Javed Hashmi on Sunday said the party chairman broke his pledge to the party by moving towards the PM House.
“This kind of behaviour is not seen in any country in the world, where people pick up sticks and protest outside the PM House,” said Hashmi.
Further, the PTI president added that Imran took his decision to move towards the PM House after Sheikh Rasheed and Saifullah Niazi delivered a message to him.
"Imran said he was obligated to take this action after getting this message," said Hashmi. "If you [Hashmi] want to stay behind, you may," Hashmi quoted Imran as saying.
However, talking to Express News, AML chief Sheikh Rasheed refuted Hashmi’s allegation that he brought a message to Imran Khan after which he decided to move forward to the PM House.
“I did not bring any message. Javed Hashmi speaks out against his own party, I can’t do anything other than pray for him,” said Rasheed.
The PTI president went on to urge Imran to move back to Constitution Avenue, saying he would join Imran if he moved back to Constitution Avenue.
"Our supporters are our responsibility," he said, adding Imran should not make them go through further difficulties.
The PTI president warned that party would have to explain its decisions for decades to come if martial law is imposed in the country.
Condemning the attack on media persons, Hashmi censured the government’s actions and urged them to stop attacking protesters.
