PTI will curb misuse of laws against political leaders: Imran Khan

Development in Punjab matchless says Shehbaz

In November 2017, ATC judge Shahrukh Arjuman granted bail to the PTI chief against surety bonds worth Rs200,000 in the case after he unexpectedly appeared before the court.

"Imran Khan only delivers long speeches [on stage], he has nothing else".

Cases were registered against Imran Khan and Tahir ul Qadri in the sit-in of 2014 which included PTV Attack case, Parliament attack case and SSP Asmatullah Junejo Torture case.

Imran Khan on Friday said whenever his party would come into power it would curb the misuse of laws against political leaders.

"Such democratic governments are worse than military dictatorships", he asserted.

However, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif criticised the decision by the ATC. He said that voting for Imran was voting for the institutions which was a good thing.

Imran Khan said there were Rao Anwar in Sindh and Abid Boxer in Punjab who committed extra judicial killings.

The PTI chief also slammed former prime minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Commenting on the recent backlash faced by the ruling party over the sexist, misogynist remarks passed by the provincial law minister, Chaudhry said, "Who says we don't respect women?" He said that they targeted Benazir and Nusrat Bhutto in the past and now they are at it again about which Maryam Nawaz does nothing.

"No angels will form the government, only the people of Pakistan will", he said.

The court had reserved the verdict on April 10th in the case that relates to attacking the Parliament and PTV office during the 2014 sit-in in Islamabad, as well as torturing then-SSP operations and violating the loudspeakers act. The judge had threatened to issue arrest warrants if Imran did not appear before the court.

Activists of Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chairman Tahirul Qadri had in 2014 staged a major rally here against alleged rigging in the 2013 election. The protesters also ransacked the PTV office.
