LAHORE - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday said the Siachen front was costing both India and Pakistan’s a lot of resources and should be demilitarized, but opposed a unilateral troop pullout by Pakistan.
Talking to reporters at Lahore airport on his return from Quetta, the PTI chief called for the demilitarization of Siachen.
Commenting on the tragic air crash near Islamabad that led to the deaths of all 127 on board, Khan urged an impartial and free investigation into the incident. Criticising the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government, he said anyone could do anything with the help of bribery.
Imran said the prime minister was “willing to go down as a political martyr to conceal corruption”.
He said the only solution to Balochistan’s problem was political.
Khan also urged President Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif to hold public gatherings in Quetta.
He called his party’s public gathering in Quetta a “record rally”, claiming that they had managed to hoist the Pakistani flag where no other party had managed to do so.
Khan said there would be a PTI tsunami on one side and vested interests on the other in the next elelction.
He said those calling the PTI tsunami handiwork should see their Quetta meeting, adding that a general could create the PML-N and IJI, but could bring a tsunami.
Khan said the government had not implemented the Supreme Court’s verdict in rental power case, adding that the person who was declared an accused had been appointed as federal minister.
