ISLAMABAD: As Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) completes 100 days of its anti-government sit-in in Islamabad, party chief Imran Khan on Friday said he was prepared to stay in the Red Zone for another 100 days, Express News reported. 

Speaking ahead of his rally in Larkana today, PTI chief said that both Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson and former president Asif Ali Zardari were afraid of the upcoming rally in Larkana.

When questioned about Pakistan Muslime League- Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Pervez Rashid’s accusations about Imran’s increasing income and assets, the PTI chief clarified that all his assets in Pakistan had been declared and were in his name.

“Tell him (Rashid) to question the Sharif family and ask if their money is in the country and if the money was not made through stolen taxes, why isn’t it in their name?” Imran questioned.

Commenting on the reduction in petrol prices in the country, Imran argued the prices have not been reduced as much as they should have in accordance with reduction in global market.

“There has been a decline in petrol costs by 25% in the last five months, however, the cost of diesel and petrol has not come down,” Imran said, adding that the government has imposed taxes worth Rs40 billion on the public.

The PTI chief further criticised PML-N government by saying that they (the government) has taken the nation into further debt.

“It is their (PML-N) sixth year in power and yet I have seen no changes; tell me what they are doing differently which is better than previous years,” he asked.

Adamant to continue his mission, Imran said that no laws were broken by his party and PTI will continue to stay in the Red Zone.

“It has been over a year and a half since the general elections and I have received no results on rigging claims; it is my right to stay on the road and protest and no one can tell me otherwise – Chaudhry Nisar nor Nawaz Sharif can take that right away from me,” Imran declared.

Imran commented on his Larkana rally to be held today, saying that people were fed up and the rally will make history.

    regurgitating the same nonsense over and over again instead of doing something productive in his own province. The thirst for power has driven him mad

    As I always say – PML-N supporters have their own crude style of supporting their party – one can easily make the difference in their intellect levels by reading their comments and seeing an element of aggression – what PTI has achieved is indeed beyond comprehension for all those who lack the vision! such negative remarks can never deter us – move forward IK-the nation is with you!

    The man of steel I must say!

    Pity our nation is stuck with the worst political elite of modern times. Nepotism, corruption, injustice and death of merit is all PMLN and PPP has to offer. Surprisingly a few unevolved minds still support them, but then evolution is naturally a slow process…..!
