We will march toward Islamabad says Imran Khan

Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan Sunday gave one month deadline to the government for halting the drone attacks and issued a warning that in case of failure the NATO supply line would be blocked and if the strikes still continued ‘we will march toward Islamabad’, Geo News reported.

Addressing a sit-in being staged against the US predator strikes under the auspices of TI here, Imran Khan exhorted the politicians to shake off ‘hypocrisy’ on the issue of drone attacks. 

“The resolution passed against the drone strikes be implemented,” the TI Chief urged the government.

Imran Khan said a country whose elite class does not give tax can never make progress. “Only the poor are being made to suffer through inflation that is a result of rich being allowed to get away with not paying the tax,” he regretted.

He termed the Chief Justice of Pakistan as the brightest ray of hope for the country.

The TI Chief called for allowing media and human rights organizations to travel inside FATA and asked these organizations to put together an independent fact-finding report on drone attacks.

“Pakistan is brimming over with natural resources which if fully tapped will end our dependence on US aid,” he said, adding, the objective of Tehreek-e-Insaf was to build a strong Pakistan.

He said TI wanted a Pakistan whose passport was looked at with respect in every part of the world.

Imran Khan thanked Javed Hashmi, Marvi Memon, Akhundzada Chattan and other political leaders for attending the sit-in.
