'Pitting army against PTI could lead to a putsch'

Nov 30, -0001

MULTAN: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, (PTI) firebrand leader Javaid Hashmi says handing over Islamabad to army ahead of PTI's 'million march' betrays how scared the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government is of its unceremonious end down the line, Samaa reported.

"Deploying army in the federal capital is a shameful undemocratic move on the part of a government, which calls itself 'democratic. We are as undeterred as we have ever been. Our tsunami will wash everything away this time'", said Hashmi in a statement issued here.

He said it was like writing off your writ in your own country yourself.

"It's not like the true leadership of a country to pit the armed forces against its own people and then watch the show", Hashmi added.

The PTI leader warned the government to beware of the upshot of their desperate measures.

"If they are thinking that this tactic is going to strengthen their footing then are terribly mistaken as they are running the risk of losing the ground they are standing on that too for good, Hashmi said.

To a question, Hashmi said it was a tyrant of a government, which just could not tolerate difference of opinion or constructive criticism.

"They ordered their minions to shoot the protestors dead in Model Town. At least 14 people were killed just because they along with thousands of others had raised voice against the corruption of rulers", said he.

Replying to another question, Hashmi said that PTI had made up its mind and there was nothing that could stop us marching toward Islamabad on Aug 14, come what may.
