Chairman Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan also disassociated himself from Shehbaz Gill’s seditious statement.
Speaking to journalists and showbiz personalities in Lahore, Imran Khan said that a sentence in Shahbaz Gill’s conversation on a TV channel was objectionable, he should not have said that.
In addition, Imran Khan has instructed the Punjab government to take action against those responsible for May 25.
Former Prime Minister Imran Khan in a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi and MNA Munis Elahi said that action should be taken against those involved in the events of May 25, who have taken revenge against us and dealt with them according to the law.
Incidents of May 25
It may be noted that on May 25, before the long march, the then PML-N-led Punjab government and Shehbaz government launched a crackdown and arrested many workers including dozens of leaders. After the no-confidence motion against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan was successful, the former prime minister held successive rallies across the country and announced that a long march would be held on May 25.
Following the arrest of former SAPM and Pakistan PTI leader Shahbaz Gill, Punjab government has ordered the immediate arrest of those involved in May 25 incidents.
