Tragedy the ultimate face saver? Imran Khan ends sit-in

ik-sitin

As a much hailed move, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday ended the 126-days long sit-in protest against alleged election rigging. Khan says he’s quitting the sit-in in Islamabad because of the human tragedy that took place in Peshawar on Tuesday and that the war against terrorism is now the priority!

PTI chief’s critics on Social Media have termed his move a bit too convenient.

Imran Khan says a tragedy of this scale where premeditated murder of innocent children takes place is something unheard of for him.

He said the sit-in movement has awakened the nation and that he will still push the formation of judicial commission to probe the alleged election rigging, adding that a re-election will be inevitable if the commission proves rigging.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has welcomed Khan’s decision and has promised PTI’s concerns regarding the election rigging will be addressed and ‘compensated’.

The attack on Army Public School in Peshawar is one of the deadliest in the country’s history that left 141 including 132 schoolchildren dead and dozens wounded.
