No more sacred cows, rule of law important: Imran

LAHORE (INP): Former premier and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said Friday that there should be no sacred cow and the rule of law is important in the country.
While addressing lawyers’ convention in Lahore via video link, Imran Khan stressed the rule of law in the country. He said that there is only one solution to end the crisis in the country which is the rule of law.
He said that there is a rule of power in the country instead of law. He added that the rule of law gives a level playing field to all citizens while the country would not achieve prosperity and development goals due to the rule of power.
The former premier was of the view that it is unfortunate to see around 750,000 skilled persons leaving the country during the last seven months.
The PTI chief alleged that the current rulers were given NRO 2 and cases against the ‘big thieves’ were dissolved. He vowed to continue his struggle against the corrupt elements in the country.
“Date for dissolution of assemblies to be announced tomorrow”
PTI Vice President Fawad Chaudhry clarified on Friday that there is no ambiguity in Imran Khan’s decision as he is going to announce the date for the dissolution of the assemblies tomorrow.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Friday, Fawad Chaudhry said Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) CM Mahmood Khan will participate in tomorrow’s historical rally on Lahore’s Liberty Chowk.
He added that the date for the dissolution of the assemblies will be announced in the presence of the Punjab and KP chief ministers. He also revealed that KP CM Mahmood Khan has recently held conservation with Imran Khan.
Chaudhry reiterated that fresh election is only solution to bring political and economic stability to the country.
The PTI VP said that Imran Khan completed consultations with the lawyers and decided to challenge the acquittal of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz top leaders Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shehbaz in different cases.
To a question, Fawad Chaudhry lashed out at the political opponents of the PTI and said that purported audio conversation of the former first lady Bushra Bibi was ‘fake’ and all other leaked audios are ‘doctored’.
He asked the political rivals to end their misconception about denting political reputation of Imran Khan via such audio leaks.
