‘No deal struck with Pak govt on 14 Aug march’

‘No deal struck with Pak govt on 14 Aug march’
The cricketer-turned-politician said there would be no agreement between his party and the Pakistan government over the key protest march. ‘The time for talking is over. We have waited 14 months and have exhausted all rules within the law,’ said Khan, who is protesting over alleged rigging in last year’s general election won by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s PML-N.

‘We raised the issue in Parliament as well, while the Election Commission of Pakistan gave us no relief. We requested for a judicial commission to be formed but that demand was also not met. Now the decision will be taken on August 14,’ he told mediapersons after his visit to relief camps in Bannu district of Khyber Pakthunkhwa.

The Pakistan government last week decided to hand over Islamabad’s security to the army from August 1 for three months, under article 245 of Pakistan’s constitution.

Imran said: ‘They should not hide behind the army as it is Pakistan’s army and not serving them alone.’
