Imran Khan will be responsible if ‘Azadi march’ targeted: Pervaiz Rashid


ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervez Rashid made it clear that Imran himself will be responsible in case of any unpleasant incident on August 14 – the day of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s planned ‘Azadi march’.


While addressing to media in Rawalpindi, Rashid demanded Imran to ensure that his proposed rally will be a peaceful one.

He said that Imran’s act of asking the resignation of PTI MNAs will lead his party workers to a mutiny within his party. He said that Muslim League did not adopt such means as ‘long march’ to gain Pakistan but instead pursued a democratic struggle.


“Why didn’t Imran Khan stage a march during Musharaf’s regime?” he asked, claiming that those standing up against the government have been supporters of General (retd) Pervez Musharaf.

Earlier, Imran had announced a ‘long-march’ to be held on August 14 against the alleged rigging in the general election 2013.

Meanwhile, the information minister’s statement appears at such a time when the ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) is reportedly approaching the PTI for a table-talk prior to Imran Khan’s scheduled ‘million-man’ march to the capital on August 14. However, on the other hand, the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar has denied approaching PTI for negotiation.
