Re-energizing the controversy: Does Imran Khan intend to over-throw Government?

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Sunday mounted the party’s famous container once again to kick off the accountability movement from Peshawar. The PTI chief addressed the rally participants before commencing the anti-corruption campaign. He said that the institutions of the country were destroyed due to corruption. “National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is providing cover to Ishaq Dar and Nawaz Sharif,” claimed Imran Khan. He said that corruption makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. Imran vowed that he would stay with the workers till the accountability of the prime minister. “This is a trailer, the match is about to start,” said Imran. Meanwhile, Information and Broadcasting Minister Pervez Rashid took a jibe at Imran Khan and said that the PTI chief has lost the reason to lead a movement.  Four months since the Panama Papers bombshell, PTI chief Imran Khan is trying to re-energise the controversy and has taken to the streets once again to demand accountability of the first family. Whether advisable or not from a political or governance perspective, the right to protest and call for accountability belongs to Mr Khan and his party. But what is indisputable is that the onus is on the government to find a solution: the unified parliamentary opposition can only make demands of the government; it is the government alone that can notify the formation of a judicial commission and set out its terms of reference. While Mr Khan does turn to dangerous and destabilising rhetoric far too often, he has also made it clear that a judicial commission formed on terms acceptable to the unified opposition still remains an acceptable solution for the PTI. Surely, then, the impasse in the ToR committee can be resolved — if Mr Sharif can find it within himself to accept that the revelations in the Panama Papers regarding the first family should be probed on a priority basis. Much as the PML-N would like to dismiss the Panama Papers as political propaganda and treat the PTI’s protest campaign as an illegal attempt to overthrow the government, the fact remains that the scandal posed serious questions to the first family that have yet to be answered. Moreover, from a democratic standpoint, it is clear why a prime minister and his family should be held to a higher standard of credibility and transparency — the great power reposed in the prime minister necessarily comes with great responsibilities towards the public. But the PTI also has a responsibility to the democratic system that the party and its leaders appear to be unaware of. In particular, Mr Khan’s enthusiasm for taking to the streets often seems to dwarf his interest in parliament. At the very least, Mr Khan should pledge — and work to ensure — that the upcoming protests remain peaceful on the PTI’s part.
