“We want a democracy in which merit rules”, said Imran Khan. He said that Nawaz Sharif did not find anyone other than his brother for being Chief Minister of Punjab (Shahbaz Sharif). He said Nawaz could not find anyone other than his nephew (Abid Sher Ali) for Ministry of Water and Power. Imran Khan said Prime Minister was unable to find anyone other than his daughter (Maryam Nawaz Sharif) for heading the 100-billion-rupees Youth Loan Program.
Imran said that he didn’t want a bloody revolution in the country. He reminded of Pakistan Muslim League (N)’s attack on the Supreme Court of Pakistan. He said he did not want any bloodshed like that.
Chairman PTI announced that he will lead the procession towards Red Zone tomorrow. He said Police will have to decide if it wanted to fire at Imran Khan or not. “World will see the real strength of Pakistani people tomorrow”, said Imran.
