Addresses the nation from his Bani Gala residence, Khan presented a charge sheet against Nawaz including allegations of corruption, money laundering, tax evasion and perjury.

He said, “This is the time to stand up. I promise my country that I will not step back this time. The dharna had to be abandoned because of Army Public School attack but I promise my countrymen I will not back down this time. If need be we will go to Raiwind and stage sit-ins there.”

PTI chief also demanded formation of a judicial commission under the chair of serving Chief Justice of Pakistan and hire foreign firms to investigate the revelations made in the Panama data leaks.

“We give you time till April 24 to form a judicial commission. If the rest of the world is investigating, we will give them the opportunity to take action. I will come out with a future course of action on April 24.”
