ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan Tuesday said he would take on former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry in the court of law.
Talking to media persons prior to his departure for Peshawar from Bani Gala, Imran Khan said in light mood that Rs20 billion is a quite a big amount and, if needed, he would take some assistance in this regard from Arsalan Iftikhar, son of Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry.
He said till now he acted upon whatever the government had asked him and he was still allowing government time to constitute the judicial commission tasked to conduct a probe into the alleged rigging of elections 2013.
“The government had better form the judicial commission soon or else we will shut down the whole country,” Imran Khan warned.
He said the country would not have faced petrol crisis today, if his party’s sit-in had continued to go on.
Imran Khan said increasing the power tariff despite the unprecedented decline in international oil prices is nothing but a ‘Jagaa Tax’ (extortion).
