Lahore: Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that they were standing at a turning point in the constitutional history, pointing out that either they would be like Turkiye or become another Myanmar.
Taking to Twitter, Imran Khan said, “Today we stand at a turning point in our Constitutional history where we can be like Turkiye or become another Myanmar,”.
The PTI Chief also wrote, “ Everyone must choose whether they stand, as PTI does, with Constitution, Rule of Law & democracy; or with a corrupt mafia, law of the jungle & fascism,”.
The reaction of Imran Khan came at the moment when his party and his political rivals are fighting legal battles in the country’s top court regarding elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakthunkwha. All the major political parties were in the Supreme Court.
A day earlier, Imran Khan, in an exclusive interview to a local news organization, revealed that he never thought to give life-time extension to former military chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Sheikh Rashid, the Awami Muslim League chief and former interior minister, also said that this week would decide the fate of the country.
Taking to Twitter, Sheikh Rashid said, “ The decision would come this week that whether the country would be run under the Constitution or under the wishes of Sharifs and Zardaris,”.
He also said the Constitution guaranteed elections within 90 days but they [Sharifs and zardaris] were against holding the elections.
He said these people would not conduct the elections.
Sheikh Rashid warned that “The third prime minister could be sent home if the Supreme Court verdict is not complied with,”.
The former interior minister also stated that the dialogue vehicle had been missed and it was now the time of the verdict. He said that those who considered the people like the sects would finally regret over the decisions.
“IMF failed, international donation zero, no gas, no light and no flour,” said Sheikh Rashid, adding that it was only the Supreme Court which could save the country.
The government wanted clash between the courts and the state institutions, he added.
