Will organise seminars in Karachi to highlight human rights violations: Imran Khan


Imran heaps praise on PTI workers

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday his party would organise seminars in Karachi in a bid to highlight human rights violations.

PTI Karachi chapter president Aftab Siddiqui called on the deposed premier. During the meeting, lawmakers Arsalan Taj and Shah Nawaz Jadoon were also present. Mr Siddiqui informed Mr Khan about the "political vendetta" faced by the PTI in Karachi. Mr Khan boosted the morale of Arsalan Taj and Shah Nawaz Jadoon, who "faced the political victimisation".

In connection with the elections, Mr Khan assigned the leaders important tasks, adding that seminars would be organised in Sindh against human rights violations. He also vowed to address the seminar sooner in this regard.

"Raiding the houses of the PTI workers in Karachi is a violation of human rights. The constitution of the country is being violated persistently," Mr Khan lamented.

Recounting "the contributions made by the PTI workers in Karachi", Mr Khan said, "The PTI workers from Karachi have always played a vital role in terms of moving forward our actual freedom movement. I would like to lavish praise on the workers for remaining determined despite facing the violence."

Earlier today, Mr Khan said he was ready to participate in all the meetings of the All Parties Conference (APC) for the supremacy of the constitution.

Expressing his thoughts during his meetup with Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) President Kazim Khan, the deposed premier took a dig at Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah. He claimed, “Rana Sanaullah had a major role in terms of planning the assassination attempt on me".

“I have named the rest of two responsible before. All the three including Sanaullah had played a key role to sabotage the investigation in connection with the assassination attempt on me,” he claimed.

Continuing to berate Mr Sanaullah, Mr Khan termed the interior minister as “coward’, claiming that he [Sanaullah] was not the interior minister but the member of the “terrorist mafia”. “To know about the character of Sanaullah, it is better to ask from the father of Abid Sher Ali”, added Mr Khan.

Speaking about the elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Mr Khan said, “If the elections will not be held in its time, then one thing will be confirmed that there exists no rule of law in the country.” He urged the PTI candidates to continue the mass contact campaign in connection with April 30.

Slamming the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Mr Khan claimed that the PML-N resorted to the old tactics of targeting the judiciary in a bid to mount pressure.
