Judiciary being pressurized for taking NRO: Imran Khan

Judiciary being pressurized for taking NRO: Imran Khan

At the outset of court proceedings today, Khan appeared before the court and filed two pleas through his lawyer Advocate Shahid Naseem Gondal.

Stringent security measures were taken ahead of Imran Khan's arrival.

Gondal pleaded with the judge to announce a decision pertaining to his client's acquittal before the charges framed against him.

About his party chief Imran Khan's recent statement that he was awarded ticket out of compulsion for none was ready to contest the by-polls, he said that Imran Khan is correct for no local leader was coming forward but claimed that a PML-Ns' Lodhran leader had said that his party would have won with a heavier margin if Ali Tareen wasn't contesting.

Khan said that he did not need protocol as "I am a regular citizen".

That number falls far short of the 57 percent of Americans polled who said they had cashed in on the investment craze a year ago . Last year was a big year for Bitcoin as the online currency skyrocketed to almost $20,000 in value.

In response to a question as to whether or not PTI's dynastic politics had been rejected, Imran Khan praised Ali Tareen and said that he was a young candidate who had secured 91,000 votes.

Police had booked Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri along with their supporters in a number of cases during the 2014 sit-in calling for the resignation of the then prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

"Everyone, including workers and our team members, were sure that we will sweep this election, they (the workers) even used to greet us in advance", Ali Tareen told ARY News anchor Waseem Badami during a talk-show.

Imran Khan said that by-elections did not demonstrate the voting trend since PML-N had also lost scores of by-elections to PML-Q during the Musharraf era. He said that Nawaz Sharif's corruption had never been exposed since he always made deals to secure himself. "The second time he secured another NRO was when he signed the Charter of Democracy with Benazir".
