on Monday said that his party will not accept the appointment of prominent social activist and former Supreme Court Bar Council chairman Asma Jahangir as caretaker prime minister.
Speaking at a presser in Lahore on Monday, Khan alleged that the Pakistain People's Party (PPP) and the Pakistain Mohammedan League -- Nawaz (PML-N) have entered into a deal among themselves.
Rejecting any chance of participating in the PML-N's protest march in Islamabad, the PTI chief said that there was no chance that the two parties could enter into a pact with one another.
Khan said that, instead of protesting with the PML-N, his party would hold a separate protest demonstration.
Moreover, the PTI chief rubbished talks of carving a new province out of south Punjab, rejecting it as mere a "election stunt".

Khan said that the PTI would accept the chairman Senate as acting president in case of President Zardari's resignation.
Khan further reassured that the PTI would not boycott the general elections, and vowed that his party would achieve success in the upcoming polls.
