Nawaz says will name those behind 2014 sit-in soon


Staff Report


Former Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif has said that he would soon reveal the names of all characters who planned and executed the August 2014 dharna (sit-in) led by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief, Imran Khan.

While talking to media outside the accountability court in Islamabad, the ousted PM Nawaz said there were several characters behind 2014 sit-in.

“Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri are among those characters, I will disclose names of other characters when the time comes,” he said.

August 2014 Dharna in Islamabad in front of parliament house was aimed at bringing down the PMLN government in Islamabad.

PTI leader, Imran Khan brought thousands of his party supporters from Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) to sit in front of the parliament building in order against the alleged rigging in the parliamentary elections in 2013.

“PTI neither has a character nor any ideology, this is a party which use filthy language and indulges in mudslinging,” he said when a reporter told him that Imran Khan’s party has rejected his suggestion to form a national commission.

“PTI is a party which always fixes its eyes on umpire’s finger, Tehreek-e-Insaf is a party which is only interested in staging dharnas, it has no trust in the slogan of “Vote ko izzat do” (honor the vote),he said.

The former premier said that PTI has no stance regarding respecting the vote. People of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) have seen the so-called change that Imran wanted to bring, he taunted.

Reacting to Nawaz Sharif’s statement, Naeemul Haq, PTI spokesman, said Sharif’s himself has dubious character and has no right to discuss others. He said 200 million people of Pakistan were behind the 2014 sit in. “It was evident from people’s participation that the sit-in was popular, and reflected people’s sentiments.
