Govt wants Imran to become a ‘good boy’: Saad Rafique
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Wednesday that the government wanted to see PTI chief Imran Khan become a ‘good boy’ and indulge in positive, constructive politics.
Reacting to PTI chairman Imran Khan’s ‘Youm-e-Tashakur’ rally in Islamabad’s Parade Ground, Khawaja Saad Rafique did not appreciate the strength or the political show put up by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
“Despite all routes being opened and accessible, your show failed,” said Khawaja Saad in reference to the rally. “I am amazed at how 1,000,000 people can be seated on a mere 6,000 chairs,” he added.
The federal minister stated that no individual will be allowed to pressurise the courts or indulge in any conspiracy against them. Khawaja Saad Rafique further said that PTI chairman Imran Khan had committed contempt of court and said that he was also a fugitive.
Imran Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party conducted a large political rally in Islamabad’s Parade Ground on Wednesday after cancelling his ‘Islamabad Lockdown’ plan a day earlier. After the Supreme Court asked both the government and opposition parties for their Terms of Reference (ToRs) to form a commission to investigate the Panamagate scandal, PTI called off its intended protest and gathered on November 2 to celebrate instead.
PTI chief Imran Khan welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision and hailed it as a historic event which would pave the way for accountability of the higher-ups in Pakistan.
