LAHORE - Imran said that his party had staged a historic sit-in of 124 days for justice. "Lahore has given its verdict that 2013 elections were rigged. The people have realised their rights and the entire nation wants justice. No democratic country let their leaders to have assets in foreign countries. We are here to make Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari answerable for their wealth," he added.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was left with only two choices, either to constitute the proposed judicial commission or brace himself to face a situation where it will be impossible for him to run the government.

Addressing a public gathering at Chairing Cross in Lahore the PTI chief said, "Nawaz Sharif you have two options. Either set up a judicial commission or it will become difficult for you to run the government smoothly."

"My next plan is ready if Nawaz Sharif doesn't come on the negotiating table," he added. He said that the PTI was not ready to accept rigged elections. "The judicial commission can be set up within 48 hours," he added.

Imran Khan accused the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) candidates of hiding behind the stay orders, as "they were scared of vote recount". "If the candidates of PML-N have really won the election why do they appear so threatened at the mention of vote recount?" he asked.

The PTI leader said that had anyone stood up against the rigging in elections 30 years ago, it would have save him the effort he was making today to get the system right. "Our protest will pave the way for a transparent democracy in future," he added.

Without the media coverage, he said, the PTI cannot reach its destination. "There should be no disrespect of any woman. We have to protect the media," he added.

He pledged that he would bring back the looted money and demanded that Rana Sanaullah be sent to jail over the murder of PTI worker Haq Nawaz.
