    Imran Khan can’t dissolve both assemblies: Rana Sanaullah

    By: Web Desk

    ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Saturday said PTI Chairman Imran Khan “cannot dissolve both [Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab] assemblies”.

    “Khan will not be able to decide about dissolving the assemblies,” he said during Geo News programme 'Naya Pakistan'.

    The PML-N stalwart added that the PTI cannot do so if no-confidence motion is moved.

    “Do they think the Opposition will sit watch?” the interior minister questioned, adding that elections should be held on time and assemblies should remain intact.

    Sanaullah also said that Khan’s decision to dissolve assemblies is his “announcement of defeat”.

    “Had [Imran Khan] marched toward Islamabad only 500,000 to one million people would have showed up. Khan decided against marching toward Islamabad as people did not arrive at the jalsa,” the minister said, stressing that the PTI chief announced to quit assemblies to avoid embarrassment.

    By: Web Desk

    Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan Saturday said that the country’s history will attest that he kept on fighting till the last ball for Pakistan.

    “I also want to say that those who saw a massive rise in their assets and trampled the nation’s rights… history is also looking towards him and writing down what he did with the country.”

    He reiterated that his party did not come to Rawalpindi for politics. Rather, Khan said it was the need of the country to have fresh elections.

    The PTI chairman boosted that whenever the elections are held his party would win them; but the issues will continue to increase as economic stability is dependent on political stability.

    Imran Khan iterates Pakistan standing at a 'defining point'

    By: Web Desk

    Former prime minister Imran Khan, during his party’s power show in Rehmanabad on Saturday, said Pakistan is standing at a “defining point”.

    Addressing the charged crowd, Khan admitted that it was difficult for him to travel with an injured leg. When he was setting out from Lahore, the PTI chief said, everyone had advised him not to do so due to his injured leg as well as the threats to his life.

    Khan said he had seen death closely after the attack on him. “When I fell down, I knew Allah saved me,” the former premier said.

    The PTI chairman further added that the coalition government has been constantly trying to “humiliate” him time and again because he called them thieves.
