LAHORE: PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan Wednesday announced the resumption of his “Haqeeqi Azadi [true freedom] Movement from Saturday (September 24) and appealed to the public to take to the streets as soon as he calls on them.

Addressing the All Pakistan Lawyers Convention in Lahore, Khan urged party workers and supporters to get ready for his call as establishing the “rule of law” was the country’s foremost need.

“If the justice system is not right, then the country’s economy won’t be streamlined,” he said, adding that there will not be any investment in the absence of rule of law.

The PTI chief said that corruption grips the country in the absence of a rule of law.

Since his ouster in April, Khan has time and again demanded “fair and free” snap polls, warning of a “strict reaction” if the government failed to yield to his demands.

The PTI had attempted a long march to Islamabad in May which was clamped down upon and suppressed by the police.

“The IMF and World Bank have said that Pakistan is becoming another Sri Lanka. Today, Pakistan’s inflation is at a historic high. We will pull Pakistan out of this [situation],” the former prime minister remarked.

He reminded lawyers about their responsibility in the current situation and asked them to stand for rule of law.

Shifting the conversation toward one of his cases, Khan said that a case regarding amendments to the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) law is in court.

Khan said that if 500,000 overseas Pakistanis invest, we wouldn’t need to ask for loans.

“Name one western country whose prime minister’s property worth billions is abroad,” he said, questioning participants at the lawyer’s convention and asking how much Narendra Modi’s property exists abroad.
