Nov 30, -0001

ISLAMABAD: Giving his anti-government movement a historic hue, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan Tuesday said that his party would continue to raid the 'Temple of Somnath' (the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PMLN) seat of power in Islamabad) like famous Ghaznavid dynasty ruler Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi, Samaa reported.

"Our protest sit-in in the federal capital was the first attack on the government that rigged the polls to its way to power. The onslaughts will not stop until an independent judicial commission carries out an impartial probe into the vote fraud that rendered the May 11, 2013 election questionable by and large," Khan said while speaking at the party's core committee meeting.

According to sources, during the meeting the PTI top brass pledged to stick to their guns against the government as long as its demands were not met.

"We will not go back to the legislative bodies. There will be no compromise on the conditions we have set for the formation of a judicial commission. And yes we will contest Senate polls," sources quoted the minutes of the meeting as saying.

The meeting also constituted a parliamentary board for the Senate election.

"The board will strictly size up the applications for the candidacy. The tickets for will be awarded only on merit," Khan told his party leaders.
