Rawalpindi: PTI Chairman Imran Khan said on Saturday that three people attempted to kill him.
"No one can kill any someone unless Allah Almighty wishes," Khan said while addressing a large gathering of his supporters at the conclusion of long march in Rawalpindi.
He asked the PTI activists to spare them from the fear of death. Imran claimed that there were three shooters in the Wazirabad assassination attempt on him.
Former prime minister Imran Khan has said the country’s current problems are not due to a lack of resources but no rule of law since the beginning.
Hitting out at the Sharif and Zardari families, the former prime minister accused them of making decisions and key appointments in their favour instead of the national interest.
He said prosperous societies had a rule of law while developing countries were afflicted by no regard for the law which explained their problems.
Khan said it was better to quit assemblies than "be a part of a corrupt system".
"We will not be part of this system. We have decided to quit all the assemblies and get out of this corrupt system," said Imran.
"My party has not come to Rawalpindi for elections or politics. It is the need of the country to have fresh elections."
Earlier, the PTI chief said that this is a defining moment for Pakistan as he began his much-anticipated speech.
"It will take three months for my foot to heal, but I am here for the sake of Pakistan.
"There is still a threat to my life and travelling to Rawalpindi with an injury was not easy," the former PM said. "I saw death very closely."
He admitted that he failed to bring the powerful under the law during his rule.
Imran's address to thousands of supporters was his first public appearance since being shot earlier this month in an assassination attempt he blamed on the current premier, and two other officials. His accusations have been denied.
The shooting was the latest twist in months of political turmoil that began in April when Imran was ousted by a vote of no confidence in parliament.
Saturday's rally was also the climax of a so-called 'long march' by PTI to press the government to call a snap election before parliament's term expires in October next year.
"My life is in danger, and despite being injured I am going to Rawalpindi for the nation," PTI quoted Khan as saying in a morning tweet.
"My nation will come to Rawalpindi for me."
