ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday terrorists succeeded in breaking the Dera Ismail Khan jail although one division of the army was present in the city.

“We have to find a new way to fight terrorism. There is an entire division of army in Dera Ismail Khan. It is beyond comprehension as to why law enforcement agencies didn’t counter the terrorists,” Imran told a press conference.

The PTI chief called the jail incident a source of concern for the nation and said Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak’s inquiry report would be brought forward.

About the contempt of court notice served on him, Imran said that he stood by his earlier stance.

“My remarks might have been misunderstood. What should I apologise for?” he said. Expressing his regard for the Supreme Court (SC), Imran said he had stood with the court in the testing times and he could not even think to disgrace it.

“The independent judiciary is the key point of PTI manifesto and that’s why we backed it in the past,” the PTI chief stated.

Imran also announced that he would move court against JUI-F chief Maulana Fazalur Rahman for calling him an “agent of Jews”.

“We are preparing a notice to send it to Fazl. We will go to court and ask him to prove his allegations,” Imran said.

The JUI-F chief has alleged that the Jewish lobby was behind the agenda of Imran and that the PTI chairman knows nothing about Islam and Pakistan.

Imran also talked about WikiLeaks documents, according to which, Fazal had asked the then US ambassador in Pakistan to back him for premiership.

“Maulana Sahib tell us whether I am an agent of Jews or you have secretly sought the support of foreigners for premiership?” Imran questioned. According to the PTI chief, “record rigging” took place in the May 11 general elections and said the Election Commission of Pakistan and returning officers were involved in it.

He also announced to publish a white paper on August 16 about the rigging, saying that evidence have been collected in this regard.

Imran also criticised the government for increasing the electricity tariff, calling the move “economic murder of middle and lower middle classes”. He said that inflation had increased by 24 percent in July.

“Now the government is increasing the price of electricity from 35 to 75 percent and in some cases to even 100 percent which will affect common man.”
