LAHORE, Jan 7: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Sunday called on MMA chief Qazi Husain Ahmad at Mansoorah and both the leaders stressed the need for forming an anti-Musharraf platform for limiting the army to its constitutional role.
Speaking on the occasion, Qazi Husain said patriotic parties needed to get on one platform for checking any extra-constitutional role of the army. He said he was in touch with all the parties, including the ARD, MMA and PTI.
He said the JI was trying to mobilise the masses for removing military dictatorship and ensuring fair and free elections.
“Parties do not want to take part in elections under a dictator, who controls almost everything in the country.”
Imran Khan said mobilising people was the only way to stop Pervez Musharraf turning into Hosni Mubarak of Pakistan.
“The General controls everything — judiciary, election commission and district governments — in the country, and there is no other way but to mobilise people.”
He said all those parties which did not want to negotiate with Gen Musharraf should get on one platform and struggle against the military dictator.
