ISLAMABAD, Feb 04 (DNA): Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb
has taken a jibe at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan over
his announcement to launch a Jail Bharo Tehreek.

The leadership is the first to go jail on the launch of a Jail Bharo
Tehreek, she said while addressing a press conference after the former
prime minister asked his party leaders and worker to brace for Jail
Bharo Tehreek.

Flanked by Faisal Karim Kundi, she said Imran Khan is hiding in the
house and asking his workers to bear a tough time. Imran Khan should
face courts instead of making such announcements, the federal
information minister said, adding that how can a person launch such a
moment who broke into tears after spending just two days in jail?

She said the leaders including e-president Asif Ali Zardari, for
bereaving confinement for the cause and stand firm against political
persecution. She blamed terrorism resurgence on the PTI, saying Khan the
former ruling party supported terrorists in KP. She said the PML-N
government got rid of terrorism but the PTI government granted pardons
to the hardcore criminals and let the terrorists reorganize.

She asked Imran Khan to face the trials instead of hiding behind the
women and children.  She appealed to the PTI supporters to shun backing
Imran Khan as they were being used and made scapegoats.

PM aide Attaullah Tarar ridiculed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman
Imran Khan’s announcement of ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’  Taking to Twitter,
Atta said that someone may have misguided Imran Khan over ‘Jail Bharo
Tehreek’.

In such a movement, bail pleas are withdrawn, he tweeted, questioning if
Imran Khan is withdrawing bail pleas in cases related to foreign
funding, cypher and Toshakhana.

The former prime minister made an announcement of ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’
to mount pressure on the government for snap polls. In his televised
address,  Imran Khan asked his party leaders and workers to get ready
for the campaign and wait for his call.

He stressed: “We are not scared of getting arrested as millions of
people are ready to fill the jails,” he added. The former prime minister
said his party could have opted for a nationwide strike but will choose
to fill the prisons instead in light of the fears that the country’s
economy might deteriorate.
