RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder and former prime minister Imran Khan has ruled out electoral alliance with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

In an informal chat with journalists in a courtroom in Adiala jail, Imran Khan said that he was jailed under “the London Plan”, and an attempt was made to do away with the PTI.

He said that Nawaz Sharif always plays with the umpires on his side. Alluding to the Supreme Court verdict stripping the party of its iconic bat symbol, he said that “the other day an umpire pitched a no-ball, I predict that something very bad is going to happen to him (Nawaz Sharif).”

When a journalist asked if an electoral alliance with was possible with the PPP, Imran Khan said that his party would not enter into any electoral alliance with the PPP in any case.

He said that Nawaz Sharif’s cases were closed while Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari, Maryam Nawaz took bullet-proof vehicles from the Toshakhana but no one asks them.

The PTI founder demanded that the cipher case be tried openly so that the people know the facts. They ask me why I did not keep the cipher secret.

On January 13, the Supreme Court, while announcing the verdict in the case of PTI’s intra-party elections its electoral symbol, nullified the Peshawar High Court verdict and stripped the party of its ‘bat’ symbol.
