Qureshi warns govt of most severe reaction if Imran Khan arrested

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) vice chairman and former Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday while expressing anger over Imran Khan’s possible arrest said the PTI would react “most severely” if the incumbent government arrested PTI chairman Imran Khan.

Talking to media along with PTI leaders in Islamabad, Qureshi said that election rigging has been planned by the current rulers and it is the responsibility of the Election Commission to hold clean and transparent elections because objections in by-polls will also raise questions on the next general elections.

The former foreign minister also said that PTI lawmakers had submitted resignations and speaker also accepted the resignations, adding that we will not appear before the speaker again to confirm the resignations.

Taking a dig at Interior Minister, he said the nation has listened to Rana Sanaullah s non-political speech and he expressed intend to arrest Imran Khan but we want to warn him that If Imran Khan is arrested then there will be severe reaction.

Shah Mehmood went on saying that the current government tortured the people on May 25 but action would be taken against the police officers who tortured the peaceful protesters in long march.

The PTI leader said the party had also decided in principle to challenge the new delimitations by the ECP wherein voters  addresses had been changed for no reason.
