- Friday, April 26, 2013 - From Print Edition


PAKPATTAN: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said though President Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif kept issuing statements against each other during the last five years, they walked hand-in-hand all along.


He said the coalition of Nawaz and Zardari will be defeated in the elections and the people will celebrate their ‘independence’ on May 11.Addressing a public gathering at a playground here, he said that he had invited Mian Nawaz Sharif for a live TV debate and he would “bowl Nawaz out” on the very first ball. Imran said the PML-N did nothing for the people during its five-year term.


He said the PML-N did not change the police system in the Punjab. He said loadshedding of 18 hours had destroyed the country, besides rendering millions of workers jobless. He said that the PTI would provide relief to small farmers after coming to power.


He said that his party would introduce a system in which MNAs and MPAs would not have any opportunity to misuse authority. He said the PTI, through the local bodies system, would transfer all powers to the people.


He said that his party would give due respect to teachers and end corruption, unemployment and dearness in the country. He said that the day would come when people of other countries would come to Pakistan for jobs.


Imran said that the PTI would establish stadiums at the union council level if voted to power. He asked the people, including women, to cast votes in favour of the PTI candidates in the general elections.


Thousands of people attended the public meeting. The PTI candidates for NA-165 Mian Ahmad Raza, for NA-164 Rao Naseem Hashim Khan and for NA-166 Mian Muhammad Amjad Joiya also spoke on the occasion.
