Imran Khan's Demands and Analysis
Imran Khan announced his "7 Point Agenda" at a Press Conference today. He criticized the government for creating the situation in Islamabad and warned them not to use “force” against the “peaceful” protestors.
As per majority of media analysts, the opening speech of Qadri was insane, revolt against the state and his orders clearly broke their agreement with Islamabad administration. The government has been very accommodating with protestors and it is Qadri who is being unreasonable.
Here is a brief summary and analysis of Imran Khan’s demand:
1- Immediate elections and announcement of date:
The current assembly will dissolve as per constitution after completing their terms in few weeks. The election date would be announced by election commission.
2- Spirit of Constitution, “Muk Muka” between political parties and demand of consultation with all political parties:
Well, the constitution is very clear in this regard that consultancy is between PM and opposition leader. However, just like they brought a respectable Election Commissioner with broad consultation, the parties should be given chance to conduct their duty within framework of constitution.
There are currently 182 registered political parties in Pakistan and it is not possible to involve and develop consensus with every single party. Once PTI comes into power, they can change the constitution to have mandatory consultation of every single political party.
3- Resignation of President Zardari:
This is unconstitutional demand, but lets assume Zardari resigns and presidential elections are announced immediately from current assemblies, would Imran Khan accept a new President for next 5 years from the assemblies where PPP, PMLQ and MQM have majority?
Imran Khan should let the President complete his constitutional term. After 18th amendment, President does not have any executive powers. Under a neutral caretaker government, neutral election commissioner and free judiciary, there should be no interference from President.
4- Election reform agenda only mandate of elected government:
Agree, but this does not mean that this is “Muk Muka” of parties in parliament.
5- Election Commission should be “Reconstituted”:
This demand is unconstitutional as Election Commissioner is constitutional position with fixed term. He can only be removed through reference in Supreme Judicial Council as per article 209.
The Election Commissioner has taken some bold steps like voters verification in Karachi and all political parties have faith in EC. Is this a coincidence that this is also the first demand of Qadri as well, and MQM is dying to stop the verification process in Karachi?
6- Implementation of Supreme Court order on Rental Power:
The court has already taken action on assuring implementation. But why Imran Khan forgot several other important cases like Asghar Khan petition, where Supreme Court ordered to take action against 2 ex-Generals of Pakistan Army? What about the other NLC case where Generals were found to be involved in billions of rupees of corruption?
7- Arrest Quetta Killers:
Good demand and killers of Hazara community they should be arrested immediately. But why not put another demand for arrest of killers in Karachi, where more than 2,000 people have lost their lives in 2012 alone? Is there any Muk-Muka in Karachi?
In US 'muk muka' is the most sought adjective in politicians - one who can compromise and still get re-elected. In Pakistan when Politicans decided we won't revert the clock back to 90's estanlishment pundits are going after Politicians reputations with terms like 'muk muka' ... and our revolutionary bloggers primarily MQM and PTI support muk muka in west but hate it in Pakistan.
When did you become an advocate for PPP and PMLN?
How is demanding Zardari's resignation unconstitutional? Zardari currently hold two titles running his party from the president house, isn't that unconstitutional, LHC even issued a verdict against that.
BTW, remember Go Zardari Go movement that deflated as fast as it was inflated, oh and I will hang Zardari upside down on Minar-e-Pakistan!!
Supreme court issued the verdict against Raja Rental and it is PTI's right to pick and chose and do politics on issues that help its agenda.
It all comes down to the fact that PPP government is illegal because of NRO, most of them are disqualified. A dacoit is sitting in the president house and Admin is talking about Imran.
I suggest consulting a psychiatrist to help you with your Imranphobia.
Election should be done ASAP under interm goverment and ECP who can make sure people with jali degree, criminal charges, corruption charges and plane Hijackers not running for office.
All other stuff whatever we have in constitution can be re-write and erase and through out of window.
بہت خوب اڈمن جی ، آپ تو چھپے رستم نکلے
بہت مدلل تجزیہ کیا ہے آپ نے خان صاحب کے سات مطالبات پر ،
اصل میں چابی والا بابے نے خان صاحب کی لٹیا ڈبو دی ، خان صاحب سونامی سونامی کرتے رہے اور چابی والا بابا لانگ مارچ لے کر اسلام آباد پوھنچ گیا اور اب ان کو سمجھ نہیں آرہی کہ کیا کریں ..
ویسے چلتے چلتے ایک بات کرتے جائیں ،
اٹھارویں ترمیم میں خان صاحب اور ان کی جماعت کی مشاورت بھی شامل تھی اور الکشن کومیشن اسی اٹھارویں ترمیم کی روشنی میں بنا ہے ، تو اب خان صاحب کیوں چیخ رہیں ہیں ..
ایک بار پھر کہتے چلیں ، بہت خوبصورت تجزیہ ہے آپ کا اس لیے کچھ لوگوں کی چیخیں بھی فورن نکلنا شروع ہوگئی ہیں
LET PMLN come in defense of Zardari... A masterstroke by Imran Khan and PTI beating them in their own game... PMLN has been complaining about PTI not criticizing Zardari and why Imran Khan only criticizes us rhetoric for a while now. With PMLN not demanding resignation of Zardari this will give PTI a stick to beat PMLN with in the streets of Punjab (not literallY :) )where zardari is a hated man and PMLN will be protecting him... the emotional people of Pakistan don't care about democracy all they care about is what have you done for us.
so just watch out for Imran Khan coming on tv saying look PMLN was criticizing us for only focusing on us and now when we are going after zardari they are protecting him :) and don't forget that epic Jang Headline from few years ago "Zardari Sahab aap ko PPP be chor gai mein nahi choroon ga" pic popping up again.
Brilliant politics and a masterstroke by PTI :)

میرے پیارے سے چھوٹے بھائی جان
خان صاحب نے زرداری پر تنقید اس وقت شروع کی ہے جب چابی والے بابے نے خان صاحب کی گیم بجا ڈالی .. خان صاحب سونامی سونامی کرتے رہے اور چابی والا بابا لانگ مارچ لے کر اسلام آباد پوھنچ گیا .. امید ہے میڈیا میں خان صاحب کی اب جو دھلائی ہو رہی ہے آپ اس سے محظوظ ہورہیں ہونگے
محبت اور شفقت بھری مسکراہٹ کے ساتھ
(: (: (: wink wink
Don't worry we are thinking of giving Chaabi wala baba a way out of this with some izzat and without getting protesters injured by police brutality...
It's one thing to say that on a forum, tell the people on streets of punjab what they are thinking about the politics of MukMuka
Imran Khan is already late.... now he must think about send re enforcement to Islamabad. This is best time to strike Zardari and Nawaz at sametime
Resignation of President Zardari:
This is unconstitutional demand...bla bla bla
ایک تو ہر کوئی آئین کا ماما بنا ہوا ہے
بھائی جان ہر آدمی کا حق ہے کہ اگر وہ کسی کو
کرپٹ سمھجتا ہے تو اس کے استیفے کا مطلبہ کرے
نورے اپنی ساری توانائی ٹیکس چوری کرنے کے علاوہ پاکستانیوں کے حوقوق صلب کرنے میں
لگا رہے ہیں
مانا(عمران خان ) لیٹ ہو گیا ہے اسٹیبلشمنٹ کو اس بونگے سے بہتر آدمی مل گیا ہے اب ادھر ادھر کی ہانکنے سے کچھ نہیں ہو گا
بہت خوب اڈمن جی ، آپ تو چھپے رستم نکلے
بہت مدلل تجزیہ کیا ہے آپ نے خان صاحب کے سات مطالبات پر
چلیں اس بہانے آپ نے کسی کے بیان سے اتفاق تو کیا ورنہ آپ ہمیشہ بلوگر کے پوسٹ کی عزت تو کرتے ہیں لیکن اتفاق نہیں کرتے
Thanks for this thread, it may work as vitamin C for some bloggers.

چیف الیکشن کمشنر پر پورا اعتماد ہے ۔ان کی نگرانی میں شفاف الیکشن ہوگا،عمران خان
All these demands, IK either is confused and have been taken away by the PADRI movement or he is trying his best to stay in news by issuing these kind of non-sense demands, just few days back, he said he have complete confidence in EC.. now he want to dissolve it??? Making new EC Is khala jee ka waRa??? and who is going to make new EC, current assemblies are going to make the EC or IK want someone else to make it???
lets not even talk about other demands, which are equally absurd
اگر پاکستان کو بچانا ہے تو ڈاکٹر طاہر القادری کو چیف الیکشن کمیشن اور نگران وزیر اعظم عمران خان کی پسند کا بنایا جائے۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔انقلابیوں کا نیا مطالبہ
IK's demand of getting President to resign ........ has been made after careful consideration......
This will enable 'suitable' person to be elected President by the 'coalition partners'
As regards Ik's demand of "Implementation of Supreme Court order on Rental Power"
In Geelani's case even when court had made its order Ik demanded that we must wait for Full Court Order in written format before taking any action......But in Raja's case he wants action immediately?
Why discrimination between Geelani and Raja jee? .....Is it because Raja is kala and Geelani is gora?
Or is it because there was no hawwa created by Pope Qanadi in Geelani days?
So whats with these demands now? Another uturn
And Today Nawaz Sharif almost copied all these demands verbatim, let's see if admin will analyze his demands as well?
