PESHAWAR, November 24: The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman, Mr Imran Khan, has warned that his party activists will defend themselves if the government resorted to violence upon them during the November 30 rally in the federal capital Islamabad.

Addressing the party’s rally in Gujranwala yesterday, Mr Khan said he had been raising voice against electoral rigging for the last one and a half years but could not get justice from any forum.

Criticising Prime Minister Mr Nawaz Sharif, the PTI chief said the premier talked about democracy but in fact he had distributed all the important ministries among his relatives. In addition, he said the prime minister had also been escaping from public accountability.

He claimed that the party would hold an historic rally in Islamabad on November 30.

Meanwhile, Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid blamed Imran Khan for using an aircraft of a private company, which he said is against the law. He asked the PTI chief to reveal the expenses on the use of the aircraft during the last one year.

The PTI leader, Mr Jehangir Tareen, has rejected the accusation and will hold a press conference today to respond to the allegation.
