PTI will resign from all assemblies, announces Imran Khan

RAWALPINDI: Springing the much-touted ‘surprise’ on his political allies and opponents alike, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan announced on Saturday his party’s intention to disassociate itself from the “current corrupt political system” by quitting the assemblies of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.

However, a final decision would only be taken after consultations with chief ministers in both provinces, while a final decision in this regard would be made after a meeting of the PTI’s parliamentary party, Mr Khan said.

The announcement came during a mammoth PTI public meeting in Rawalpindi, Mr Khan’s first public appearance since the attempt on his life in Wazirabad on Nov 3.

Addressing the well-attended rally — which was held at Rehmanabad after a long-drawn tussle with the administrations of Rawalpindi and Islamabad over the venue, duration and mode — the former prime minister declared that he would not ask his supporters to enter Islamabad as he did not want turmoil in the country.
