Imran asks Nawaz to quit politics

LAHORE, Nov 9: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan says he is ready to quit politics if someone proves that he has taken funds from the ISI.

He was talking to the media at 11th International Cancer Symposium organised by Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital here on Friday.

“I reject the allegations of getting money from the ISI and am ready to quit politics if it is proved that I’ve taken money from the ISI,” he told a questioner.

He said PML-N President Nawaz Sharif should quit politics following the apex court judgment in the Asghar Khan case. “After the Supreme Court’s ruling on Asghar Khan’s petition, Nawaz is left with no moral ground to continue staying in politics.”

He asserted that the party which was formed with the support of ISI would face the public wrath in the elections.

He claimed the PML-N would not be able to form its government as the PTI tsunami was all set to purge the country of corrupt elements in the next elections. He said the PTI would contest the polls no matter who would be there in the Presidency during the elections.

About the army chief’s recent statement, Imran said he agreed with the view that all state institutions must operate within their respective constitutional ambits.

Lauding the role of judiciary, he said PPP was attempting to suppress court’s freedom to protect its president.
