Leaders of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and Awami National Party (ANP) alongside Fazl ur Rehman addressed the people participating in the march in the H-9 Sector.
President of PML-N, Shehbaz Sharif, in his speech, said that this is the first step in the oppositions’ campaign to remove Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government. He criticized the government’s policies and attitude toward the poor and questioned the decision made by the government of Imran Khan. He called PM Imran Khan a “brainless leader” and told that all the decisions made by the PM depend completely on “supernatural guidance” and “sorcery”.
Shehbaz said, “If God gives us the opportunity, we will put up a united front and work on fixing Pakistan’s economy. Imran Khan has a lot of support from all institutions – if we had only 10% of this support, we would have taken Pakistan on a Sputnik-like flight.”
“This protest will sweep away Imran Khan and his government.”, he added.
He said while responding to the criticism of PM Imran that these protests are happening due to PTI’s own faults and wrong decisions and policies. He said, “If Imran Niazi remains in power any longer, Pakistan’s situation will only further deteriorate. This sea of humans has made it clear that now is the time for a change. We will rebuild Pakistan once again under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif and our economy will be on its feet again within six months.”
The opposition claims that PTI illegally came to power as they have the supported of the army which has ruled Pakistan for most of its history and has always established the security and foreign policies of the country itself. The army has denied the claims of the opposition and their interference in politics.
PM Imran Khan has denied the demands of the opposition to resign and he warned that any chaos will not be tolerated by the government.
A spokesperson of the military told that Chief of Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, has requested PM Imran Khan to peacefully respond to the protests and try to avoid violence by both sides.
