Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister on Friday dismissed reports that he struck a deal with the Pakistan Army to end his massive Azadi rally demanding fresh general elections, asserting that he had decided to end his march to avoid bloodshed.

A defiant Khan on Thursday warned that he would return to the Pakistani capital with the entire nation if the "imported government" failed to announce fresh general elections within the six-day deadline, prompting Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to retort back that his "dictation won't work" and Parliament would decide the date for polls.
