Imran tells workers to be patient among crackdown, desertions

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan told workers to be patient as party leader continued to resign from the party. He also called for immediate talks with institutions to end the political crisis in the country.

“First of all I want to clarify that that I did not call this press conference to announce that I am leaving the Tehreek-e-Insaf,” Imran said in a speech broadcast on PTI Official’s YouTube channel.

“I would like to appeal for talks, because what is currently happening is not a solution,” he said.

He also said that whenever he had offered to negotiate the crackdown by the government had renewed in intensity.

“Every principle Pakistan was created on is being negated,” he said. “There is no freedom in the country.”

Imran referred to the recent flurry of resignations from the party as ‘forced divorces’ and said that people were resigning on gun point.

“Do you think people are stupid? Do you think people don’t understand what is happening?” Imran said.

Imran added that the party and the prevailing situation could not be fixed through use of the stick. He added that the country was being destroyed in an attempt to crish the PTI.

“A party comes to an end when its ideology comes to an end,” he said. “The PTI’s vote bank keeps increasing the more injustice they’re doing.”

Imran Khan said that the falling value of the rupee against the dollar was leading Pakistan towards ‘hyper-inflation’ and things could become as bad as Sri Lanka. However, he added that the government was not interested in managing the economy because their wealth was stored abroad.

However, he added that people were not coming out on to the streets because they were hoping that elections would take place in the country soon.

Imran said that even though the PDM had the entire establishment on its side, they are still running away from elections out of a fear that Imran Khan would win the elections.
