Islamabad, April 20(ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has announced plans to adopt a two-way strategy to end the US drone campaign in Pakistan's tribal areas- by the application of public pressure within the country, and taking legal action through international courts of law.
Khan made this announcement at a joint press conference with Clive Smith of Reprieve - a charity organisation, which provides free legal aid to families of drone attacks' victims in collaboration with the Justice Project of Pakistan.
The PTI chief said some 90 per cent of the people targeted by drones are civilians, adding that 18 out of every 20 victims of drone attacks are innocent.
"The bodies of the victims are usually beyond recognition, but somehow the victims become suspects after they are dead," the Daily Times quoted Khan, as saying.
"Rulers have sold national sovereignty for dollars," said the PTI chief as he urged the people to take to the streets against this "state-sponsored terrorism".
Alleging that the government has fixed the "match of drone attacks" with the US administration, Khan condemned it for failing to protect the life and property of the citizens.
He invited all political parties to his proposed sit-in at Peshawar on April 23-24 against US drone attacks, saying that it was a national cause, and that it was their duty to rise up against foreign aggression and the government's failure in getting the drone strikes stopped.
Speaking on the occasion, Smith said his organization was meeting affected people and providing them legal help in the United States, the United Kingdom, Pakistan and at international courts. (ANI)
