Islamabad, October 22, 2022 (PPI-OT):Federal Minister for Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety, Shazia Marri on Friday said that the respectable and democratic way to respond to the ECP’s decision for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was to pursue legal way or stage peaceful protest instead of spreading chaos and anarchy in the country.
Addressing a news conference here along with the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, Faisal Karim Kundi, the federal minister said that the politics of disruption and anarchy has neither succeeded in 90’s nor will today. “The way PTI workers react to such decisions reflects that they lack any political training”, she added. She said that Imran Khan, as per his recent political history, has always called others as thieves and dacoits however the ECP has disqualified him after finding out his theft.
Shazia Marri said that, “If the decision comes against you it doesn’t mean that you start spreading chaos and anarchy in the country making the lives of the general public difficult. She said that Toshakhana case was just a beginning; there were many serious cases against Imran Khan one of which is foreign funding case in which the petition was filed by PTI’s own founding member not any other party’s member.
The legal team of Imran Khan took 8-10 stay orders while an application was also filed by PTI to keep its proceedings secret. “If Imran Khan is “Sadiq and Ameen”, why he was afraid and asked for keeping the proceedings secret”, she questioned. Shazia Marri said that the legal team of Imran Khan was confused and committed misdeclaration in Toshakhana case.
The minister pointed out that one of the “Cheetah” of PTI called the ECP as dishonest after today’s decision. “Imran Khan distributed sweets on the disqualification of others but the workers of PPP will not do the same today”, she added. She said that Pakistan People’s Party had faced many cases while it’s President, Asif Ali Zardari had faced 14 yearlong imprisonment with courage.
Referring to the Ring Road Scandal, Bushra Bibi involvement in corruption, Farah Gogi case, Shazia Marri said that Imran Khan himself had been declared as most corrupt and big dacoit. “His theft is also of a unique nature in terms of Toshakhana case,” she added.
On this occasion, Special Assistant to Prime Minister and Information Secretary of People’s Party Faisal Karim Kundi said that today the Election Commission of Pakistan has disqualified PTI chief Imran Khan in the Toshakhana reference under Article 63(1) (p) for making “false statements and incorrect declaration.
Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has been proven to be a certified thief today and it is the same Election Commission of Pakistan about whom Imran Khan said that he had never seen a competent person than him.
Faisal Karim Kundi said that Imran Khan is no longer remain the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, today while Shah Mahmood Qureshi is waiting for the realization of his dream, Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s dream may not be fulfilled and he remains the vice chairman. Imran Khan has not given anything to the country except for insulting and abusing others while various cases against PTI MNA and MPAs are also registered.
