LAHORE: Defying against odds, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Saturday announced that his party chief ministers would dissolve Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) the assemblies on December 23 (Friday).
The PTI chief’s announcement came during his address to a huge rally of party workers and supporters in Liberty Market via video link from his residence in Lahore’s Zaman Park.
At the outset of his address, the PTI chief said he wanted to inform the people about why he decided to dissolve the assemblies in both the provinces where his party ruled.
“In this country, until free and fair elections don’t take place, fears will still remain that the country might sink.” Imran said he provided all the details to the courts about his assets just like every commoner in Pakistan — unlike the ones who “looted” money of the masses and siphoned it abroad.
“All their money, business, and children are abroad. They are living a luxurious life in Pakistan after looting the nation’s money,” Imran said, claiming that he never thought that he could ever live anywhere else except Pakistan.
