Establishment wanted to hold elections but Nawaz Sharif overruled: Fawad
Fawad Chaudhry said that get ready for the revolution if you will not announce the election date.
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader and former federal minister Fawad Chaudhary has admitted that our back channel talk was going on earlier as well. He said that the establishment wanted to hold elections in the country but Nawaz Sharif overruled the idea and said that he cannot win the election before one year, Dunya News reported.
Talking in Dunya News programme Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Saath on Monday, Fawad Chaudhary said that the speed of the container cannot be accelerated because thousands of people are walking along the container during the long march.
"It seems the PTI long march cannot reach Islamabad before next Friday as we are able to cover a distance of 10 to 12 kilometres in a day and stop our journey after Maghrib prayers due to security reasons," he said.
Fawad Chaudhary further said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif s argument that they cannot win the election at the moment then why should they go to election now is a ridicules argument. "If you will not announce the election date, then get ready for the revolution," he said.
Fawad Chaudhry said that if there are two to three thousand people in the PTI long march (as Nawaz Sharif claimed) then why did the government go to court to stop the long march? He said that the delay in the election is due to Nawaz Sharif.
