Lahore: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan said that the Supreme court of Pakistan is the last hope for all Pakistanis.

He said there was no other way to come out of the prevailing crises in the country.

“Whether the economic and terrorism crises will come to an end on Oct 8,” asked Imran Khan while talking to the reporters during his appearance before the Lahore High court on Friday.

The PTI Chairman said that the situation would be worsened on Oct 8.

The PM was of the view that the rulers could do anything if they decided to commit violations of the Constitution once, recalling the decision of former military dictator Zia-ul-Haq that he announced to hold elections in 90 days but remained in power for 11 years.

He also expressed serious concerns that the PTI activists and leaders were being taken into custody and he was booked in 40 cases of terrorism.

“The country will turn into a banana state without the rule of law,” he added.

Khan stated that the police broke into his house when he went to Islamabad to appear before a court, saying that it was not justifiable.

He added that it was the previous government which filed 95 per cent of cases against the PDM and PPP leaders, and PML-N Supremo Nawaz Sharif was found guilty of panama papers. He said that the PTI government filed only a single case against Shehbaz Sharif.

Earlier, Khan secured extension in protective bails in five cases registered against him in Islamabad.

A two-member bench of the LHC allowed extension in the bail till March 27 after Khan appeared in person before it with his personal security. He had also told the court that his situation was quite different as he was booked in 40 terrorism cases and total 140 cases were lodged against him.
