Imran calls party workers to Islamabad next week
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said Friday that the coming week will be the most important in Pakistan’s history, as it will be decided if Pakistan remains a country of dacoits or will it change into a new Pakistan.
Speaking to party workers in Kahuta, where he was invited by ex-MNA of PPP Murtaza Satti, who joined PTI recently, Imran said that for the last 30 years, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was never subjected to accountability. “But next week, it will be decided if it remains a country of dacoits or will it brace for ‘naya’ Pakistan,” he noted.
Imran invited his party workers to come to the federal capital next week for celebrations, indirectly referring to the expected judgment from the Supreme Court in the wake of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report.
Referring to JIT findings, the PTI chairman alleged that Nawaz himself was involved in corruption and in order to cover it up, he allowed others to also indulge in the menace. He continued slamming Nawaz and charged that the Prime Minister always purchased loyalties of people and struck deals, destroying state institutions. “When rulers are corrupt, institutions and country are ruined,” he said.
About aims and objectives of creation of the motherland, Imran said that Pakistan was to become a model Islamic welfare state in the comity of nations but he lamented that today there was no respect for Pakistani passport abroad and the country is in debt while unemployment is all-time high. At the same time, a small group of influential people is becoming richer and richer at the cost of the entire nation, he said.
He showered praise on JIT and asserted the people of Pakistan would never forget the job done by its members. He saluted the members on behalf of the nation. He again referred to the Sharif family as a mafia and said he would have died of shame had he been in place of Nawaz today. Imran called on Nawaz to immediately resign as prime minister in light of JIT report.
