ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief on Monday said that his party would not return to assemblies until the judicial commission (JC) comes up with its findings in the alleged rigging of General Elections 2013.

Addressing a press conference at Bani Gala, he said the deadlock persists with the government on three points over the formation of the judicial commission to probe rigging in the general elections.

These three points, he added, were earlier accepted by the government.

He demanded that the government ends terrorism cases against PTI leaders and investigates the murder of PTI activist Haq Nawaz in Faisalabad to the satisfaction of his parents.

Imran appealed to the public to donate Rs 1.5 billion for his Shaukat Khanam hospital in Peshawar, adding that the project would suffer a delay of another year if they fail to raise the required funds.

“We will not take funds from the federal and provincial government for Shaukat Khanam hospital’s Peshawar branch,” Imran clarified.

The cricketer-turned-politician further said his party’s four-month-long protest had awakened the nation, the example of which “cannot be found in the past”.

He also announced to hold a public rally at D-Chowk for paying tribute to the sacrifices of the PTI sit-in participants on January 17.

Meanwhile, sources said that the PTI has evolved an alternative strategy to stage dharnas and protest rallies in case the government did not form the JC to probe election rigging.
