    ISLAMABAD: Spelling out his Plan C, PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday threatened to bring all of Pakistan to a grinding halt on December 16 if rigging in the 2013 election was not probed within four to six weeks under the Supreme Court.



    Speaking to a charged rally of thousands of his supporters here, Imran said they had spent 109 days at the sit-in and it would continue. “I will shut down Lahore on December 4, Faisalabad on December 8 and Karachi on December 12.”



    Imran charged that seven million additional ballot papers were printed and bundles of them were distributed in selective constituencies under a well-thought-out plan.He alleged about 120,000 ballot papers were distributed for Saad Rafique, who as a result returned from that constituency.



    He alleged that the 2013 elections were fixed by Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari to loot Pakistan’s resources and wealth. He also blamed ex-CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice (retd) Khalil Ramday and the caretakers for the alleged rigging.



    “Mian Sahab the ball is now in your court. Take a decision and get the rigging investigated or you will not be able to bear what I will do after December 16 under Plan D,” Imran asserted.He was flanked by Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Jehangir Tareen, Sh. Rasheed Ahmad, Dr. Arif Alvi and others.



    He was confident that the Plan C would really make it dificult for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his government to function.“We shall shut down the entire Pakistan if the constituencies are not opened,” he warned.



    Imran explained why he came on the roads and staged a sit-in and led a campaign after exhausting all legal options.A short movie was also shown on big screens at the venue about the events leading to the Azadi March sit-in and the ongoing struggle.



    The PTI chief reiterated that an understanding had been reached with the government during talks that representatives from the ISI, MI and FIA would also be a part of the poll investigation process under the Judicial Commission.



    He asked journalists, anchorpersons and columnists to tell him what option was left with him to move against the status quo and get justice with regard to the rigging in last year’s elections.



    It is pertinent to mention here that despite extending invitations, the Pakistan Awami Tehreek, Majlis Wahdat-e- Muslimeen and Sunni Ittehad, believed by many to be its allies, stayed away from the PTI’s rally.



    About the JUI-F’s shutterdown and wheel-jam strike, Imran alleged that the task was given to Maulana Fazlur Rehman to block the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa roads so that the PTI ‘tigers’ could not reach the federal capital for the party’s rally.



    Imran warned that if the electoral system was not reformed after a fair investigation into the last elections, the status quo would persist with no possibility of a change.



    He charged that when politicians would not come to power on the basis of votes and through rigging, they would never spend the public money on masses and that was exactly what was happening in Pakistan. He alleged the rulers were using the media against him from the taxpayers money and not from their own pockets.



    He referred to the poor conditions of hospitals and cited an incident in which a mouse nibbled at a new-born at the Holy Family Hospital. He also talked about the death of at least eight kids in a Sargodha hospital allegedly because of unavailability of oxygen. He also made a mention of death of a woman every 20 minutes due to poor health services at the government hospitals.



    Imran noted that instead of spending on health, education and provision of clean drinking water, motorways, underpasses and metro bus projects were being launched to pocket billions of rupees.



    Referring to the agreements signed with China on energy projects, he alleged that these were signed by the rulers to receive kickbacks and commission.He claimed that the metro project launched in Lahore and in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad was many times costlier than those already built in Turkey and India.



    Imran claimed that lowest spending was made in Pakistan on health and education compared to the rest of the countries. He came down hard on Nawaz and Zardari and questioned why they not be dubbed as dacoits for looting billions of poor Pakistanis of whom 110 million could not afford two-time meal.



    The PTI chief said when the Nawaz-Zardari partnership started in 1988, the US dollar fetched Rs15 and now it stood at Rs103. He alleged that the main beneficiaries of this massive fall of rupee were these two, who had their wealth abroad.



    Some PTI supporters were seen carrying pink balloons, inscribed with slogans of ‘go Nawaz go’. PTI caps and flags were in high demand. Scores of boys and girls got their faces painted with the party flags and shouted anti-Nawaz slogans.



    Earlier, in his speech, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said now was the time to take decisions, as the time for delivering speeches was already over and now the masses will take decisions. “The nation is ready for the next phase but Nawaz is not,” he claimed.



    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak challenged Maulana Fazl to block the roads tomorrow and then see how the PTI workers would open them up and drag him on the roads.



    “Today, we exercised decency but not tomorrow,” he said and alleged Fazl had tried to stop them from reaching the rally.“I ask the poor people of Pakistan to torch this system, raze their palaces and come out to lend support to Imran Khan,” asserted Awami Muslim League leader Sh Rasheed.He said if the trial against a former army chief, former prime minister and former CJ could be held, then why not against Nawaz for what he called theft of the vote of the people.

    IK already called for blocking Islamabad and Azadi March, Similar kind of protest has been witnessed in Telangana region.

    Telangana region leaders has shut down every thing right from RTC buses to Cable TVs for almost 3 months.

    They even shut down poojas in temples, Trains (some of them), RTC routes etc...etc...

    State employess are on strike no governance except emergency services. The whole region of 9 districts came to stand still.

    The protest costed crores of Rupees as well.

    People also supported the telangana leaders. CM Kiran Kumar has performed well in dealing with the protest after diffusion of the protest and million march associated with it, Andhra people did the same, shutting down the Andhra region !!

    On 16th December 1971 Lt Gen Niazi and 90,000 Pakistanis surrendered to the Indian Army's Lt Gen JS Aurora in Dhaka -edit- thus creating Bangaldesh

    On 16th December 2014 Imran Khani Niazi, yes his tribal surname is Niazi, will be shutting down Pak.

    Niazi tribe for Bharat Ratna :rofl:

    Oh of course. What he is doing is the right thing as far as I am concerned. But just wondering that the last time he protested in Islamabad, it caused a serious blow to paki economy. What will happen if he closes down all of its cities. Guess we will wait and see.

    No is was "ban-istan" where most of the things are banned.

    "shut-istan" is a new development. Imran Khan is absolutely correct. Nawaj Sharif is a very shrewd ("chalaak") person. This man epitomizes feudal rule of Pakistan.

    My best wishes to Imran Khan.

    Really? So IK doing his one day drama is equal to 3 months of total shutdown by each section of Telangana society, not just political, but every govt employee, students and general public? Do you think for 3 months they enjoyed holidays and have not risked their personal and professional lives?

    I have no idea why you brought this Telangana Andhra thing into Protests of IK who is doing them against Pakistani Govt.

    From a Pakistani Blog:

    Pentagon’s Shocking Report against Pakistan after Wahga Border Terrorist Attack!!! (Part-I) | PAKISTAN DEFENCE NEWS BLOG | Pakarmedforces.com

    The blog tells about the real state of Pakistan from concerned Pakistanis. How long such a State can last? What will China do or what will USA do in a country where basic freedoms and basic rules of governance do not exist.
