Azadi March: Nawaz Sharif's judicial probe offer fails to pacify Imran Khan

Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 12:43pm IST | Agency: ANI

Although Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has offered to launch a judicial probe into electoral fraud allegations yet the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has refused to call off the scheduled Azadi March to the capital city of Islamabad.

While addressing a press conference, Khan refused to accept the offer by alleging that no judicial probe can be conducted transparently under the leadership of Sharif. He asked the Prime Minister to resign from premiership after the judicial commission is formed, reported the Dawn.

Khan's press statement followed Sharif's address to the nation during which he requested the Supreme Court to form a commission to investigate allegations of rigging in the 2013 general elections.
