ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief on Saturday claimed that soon ‘Go Nawaz Go’ slogans will be heard in Raiwind [the palatial palace of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif].

Addressing his supporters at D-Chowk in Islamabad, Imran reaffirmed his commitment to continue his protest till he is accorded justice.

“We have been denied justice and we will not end our sit-in till it is done,” the PTI chief said.

Talking about his upcoming rally in Islamabad on November 30, Imran said that he knows the government will try to stop his supporters from gathering by any means.

The government has asked the PTI to follow the procedure for holding their rally in Islamabad or they would be denied permission, whereas the PTI chief has virtually turned down the proposal, arguing that holding a peaceful protest was his party’s constitutional right.

Addressing the sit-in, Khan said that the PTI had started its protest campaign in summer and now it was winter. The rulers were of the view that we would end the sit-in due to harsh weather but they would have to disappoint in this regard, he added.

Justifying his protest campaign, he said that the PTI was demanding for their right and there was nothing illegal or unfair in doing so.

    Qadri gone, Imran to GO.
    The entire PTI team is wasting on slogans instead of fixing things in KPK. What a shame.
    Irresponsible politicians.

    IK, the deep state has achieved the goals it wanted from the sit-ins. The foreign policy and security matters are now decided in Abpara and Pindi. The political government is just a lame duck. The establishment does not want to dislodge it. So, PTI may cool off its heals and wait till 2018, when the establishment will switch sides and target the elements of change. Then we shall see the same media targeting IK and its party.

    Nobody can deny your right to hold a peaceful rally but you must seek permission from authorities which is required by law for security and logistic planning. After speech, you will go home but its government which picks up the mess left behind by kids and ensure safe return of participants. Just for a change, consider us a civilized nation and behave accordingly.

    The chowkidars at Raiwind are currently seconded to the Defense Ministry.
    As per Nawaz’s policy some family member or trusted retainer must be embedded
    in every ministry and department. They will have to forego their assignments and be
    on hand to protect Hamza, Shamim, Maryam, Kalsoom, the peacocks, the cows, deers,
    Houbara bustards, [used for target practice] and one Himalayan black bear. Plus a tiger.

    @Ch. Allah Daad:
    But authorities are controlled by the goons who are in turn controlled by those who have been proven to steal electricity, loot the country, amass assets outside the country while people are dying of hunger, more and more people going below poverty line.

    @Swat wala: Imran Khan has succeeded in making the whole country a laughing stock where any sore loser can destabilize a country, scare away investment and keep crying that he has been wronged. Imran Khan has shown us that it is easier to cry than it is to work. His poor performance overall has turned away former supporters who now see him as a stubborn obsessed power hungry politician who has surrounded himself with old style politicians like Shaikh Rasheed and the Chaudries of Gujrat. Have all the rallies you want IK but the nation know sees you for the self centered opportunist you are.

    Poor Raiwind had seen gatherings of millions of pious Muslims and yet they could not change its fate let alone Pakistan’s fate. Unless there is something for poor in terms of min wages, medical facilities, education, agriculture and other civic facilities nothing can change. We have gatherings and talks among millions of people every year from Raiwind to Hajj but what has been changed? Of course our downward spiral continues. A fraction of the monies wasted on Dharnas could be used to save dying kids instead of making it a political football. With little and no money Edhi Sir and Malala are making a difference follow their example.

    The government should arrest him to provide him a face saving exit from the mess he has created for himself and his blindfolded followers.
