ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan called the Prime Minister a ‘security risk’ for the country adding that every time his party plans to launch a protest something happens in the country.
He was speaking to journalists on Tuesday outside his Bani Gala residence.
He questioned the government over the steps it had taken after the Quetta Civil Hospital Attack in which over 70 people mostly lawyers lost their lives. “Terrorism and corruption are linked to each other,” he said.
He added that the PTI has suspended all activities today to mourn the victims of the attack on a police centre in Quetta on Monday which killed 61 cadets.
Speaking about a report in Dawn newspaper which highlighted a rift between the army and civilian government he said, “Why have informants of the security leak not been revealed? The Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq of this country should be revealed.”
Senior PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi speaking to journalists refuted allegations that the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, which include some banned outfits, has been invited to the Islamabad sit-in. “We have not invited them. We only want people who want change in Pakistan to join us in the sit-in.”
The PTI has called a sit-in in the capital on November 2 to protest alleged offshore accounts owned by the Prime Minister named in the Panama Papers. The party has threatened to block all state machinery.
Tahirul Qadri’s Pakistan Awami Tehreek also joined the sit-in on Monday.
The protest comes as the Supreme Court is hearing PTI’s petitions filed against the Prime Minister.
