11:35 pm - Imran Khan said if his party was voted into power it will enforce a system of employment, merit, accountably and will turn the country into “Green Pakistan” by massive plantation. 

11:35 pm - Imran Khan also threatened to bring out millions of his supporters on roads if the government repealed Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

“Conspiracy was hatched against judiciary on the GT Road, and I assure you that more conspiracies are ahead, but I promise you that I will bring out ten times more supporters than the GT Road rally,” he promised, and vowed to stand by the judiciary and army.

“This is not the conspiracy but the dawn of new Pakistan where you can’t buy the judges.”

Imran Khan said the ruling party is putting pressure on NAB and judiciary, adding that the former PM is indirectly maligning Pakistan’s armed forces.

“Nawaz Sharif! You are talking about mandate. Have you acquired the mandate of looting the wealth of Pakistan and its people?” he questioned.

11:05 pm - "First let's talk about the media group that's most vocal on this fiasco. Geo group."

Today only two types of people are with Nawaz Sharif. One are the people whose vested interests lie with him. Second, those who know it's going to be their turn next: Imran

"But before those 4 points, let me comment on the GT road drama where a man asks everyday "Why am I disqualified?"

"We want to make Pakistan such a country that people with green passports will be respected anywhere they go," Imran Khan said.
