ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has categorically refused to tender resignation and said that he would not step down on the opposition’s demand.
“Let me be very clear that I will not resign on opposition’s demand,” the premier told a select group of journalists at the PM Office on Wednesday.
He said it appeared as if the JUI-F chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, is backed by foreign elements, adding that even his charter of demands is not clear. “However, we will allow them to hold their ‘Azadi March’ protest [peacefully] in Islamabad.”
PM Imran mentioned that the government’s committee will meet with JUI-F chief as there was no ban on airing the speech of Maulana Fazalur Rehman.
Commenting over the arresting of opposition leaders, PM said that if he allowed them to go abroad his life become more comfortable as opposition only wanted NRO.
Replying to a question regarding businessmen, PM said that army chief has met with them before informing him.
In his reaction on a question tensions on borders, PM said he has directed the army chief to alert the forces as India can stage another Pulwama like drama.
