The Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan, has stated his willingness to talk to anyone and take steps towards the development, interests, and democracy of Pakistan. He also expressed his commitment to making any sacrifice for the sake of the country. This statement comes shortly after his plea seeking the suspension of non-bailable arrest warrants issued against him in the Toshakhana case was dismissed by a district and sessions court in Islamabad. The verdict reserved by the judge stated that warrants could not be suspended on the basis of an undertaking.
In a separate tweet, Imran Khan thanked the people of Pakistan who joined his struggle for "real freedom" and his party's workers from all over Pakistan, including Lahore. He prayed for Allah Almighty to make the struggle and journey towards true freedom successful.
Imran Khan's statement on being willing to talk to anyone for Pakistan's development and democracy comes at a time when the country is facing numerous challenges, including economic and political instability. He also denied breaking any law during his lifetime and said he could provide that in writing. This statement comes after intermittent episodes of stalemate between police, later flanked by Rangers, and PTI activists amid fears of his arrest in connection with the Toshakhana case.
Addressing party workers outside his residence at Zaman Park, Imran Khan said law enforcement agencies attacked him and his party workers as if they were terrorists. He challenged them to furnish a single instance where he broke the law. He also accused the police of coming to arrest the leader of the biggest political party in Pakistan just for the sake of securing their jobs. Imran Khan said he was on protective bail until March 18, but the police arrived on March 14 instead. He also talked about ticket distribution for the upcoming elections and said he knew what had happened in 2018 during PTI ticket distribution, adding that money and political influence were used
