By Mashal Khan
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan political crisis further worsening as former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday announced to pull out from assemblies and dissolve provincial governments in two provinces.
Addressing a massive gathering in Rawalpindi, a garrison city bordering with capital Islamabad, Khan said he will not be part of current corrupt system anymore
“We have decided to leave the assemblies and I have discussed with chief ministers as we don’t want to remain part of this corrupt system,” Khan told his supporters.
Khan for the first time appears in public after being injured in an assassination attempt on Nov. 3 in Wazirabad city of Punjab province.
At least one was killed and 13 others wounded in the attack.
According to independent observers, the Saturday gathering has broken all the records of political gatherings in the country's history as a huge crowd gathered to listen Khan’s after more than three weeks.
“We were decided that the long march will go to Islamabad but I don’t want to create chaos in the country,” Khan said.
“We can easily go to Islamabad as no one could stop this crowd but it will further destroy the country,” he added.
