Musharraf should resign: Imran Khan

Imran Khan hit out at Musharraf, saying he's part of the problem in Pakistan.

New Delhi:Cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan hit out at Musharraf, saying he's part of the problem in Pakistan and no solution could be expected till such time that he's in power.

“The moment Bhutto arrived in Pakistan, she was under threat. We hold Musharraf responsible for this. They are talking of a judicial inquiry. However, the fact is that 60 per cent of our judges have been sent home,” says Imran Khan.

Lamenting on Bhutto’s death, Imran Khan said that there was no sense in going ahead with the General Elections. Added that credible elections can take place only when there is an independent judiciary. The first step would be, however, to reinstate the judiciary and hold an enquiry into Benazir’s assassination.

He also said that no one had any faith in the current government, and the only solution is to hold free and fair elections. “Musharraf should resign,” adds Imran.

The cricketer turned politician also said that no one in Pakistan was safe. “Anyone can be bumped off in Pakistan and the blame put on Al Qaeda. Even Nawaz’s rally was attacked yesterday,” adds Imran.

It is doubtful to say who could be responsible for this, however, the moment the US backed Benazir, they put her life in jeopardy, says Imran.
