Lahore, Sept 09 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said that the NA-120 by-election will decide Pakistan’s future.
“On September 17, you have to show that you stand with the judiciary. Exercise your right to vote in favour of the law,” said Imran addressing a rally in Qurtaba Chowk on Friday.
“Give it some thought before you vote in favour of Nawaz Sharif. Voting for him will mean that you have given the dacoits a free pass to do whatever they want. Remember that you have to vote against the dacoits,” Khan said and added that the people’s vote will empower the judges.
“If you want to vote for the biggest dacoit then all the imprisoned petty criminals should also be released,” he added.
He further said, “This is the time to change our path and bring about change.”
PTI held a massive show of power ahead of NA-120 by-poll in Lahore, where PTI’s Yasmin Rashid will go head-to-head with PML-N’s Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Imran also said that he is baffled at the amount looted by the Sharif family. “I played cricket in Britain for 13 years after which I was able to afford a flat there,” he pointed out.
We should ask PML-N leaders what business were Nawaz’s children doing that they became billionaires at such a young age, he said.
Speaking about positive changes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa under PTI’s government, Imran Khan remarked: “We reduced poverty by five per cent, we planted a billion trees, we improved public hospitals, we helped the needy, we formulated policies for the nation.”
Taking a jibe at his political opponents, Imran said that the only change Shehbaz Sharif has brought about is a change in the provincial police uniform.
“We live in a country where the powerful are never held accountable. The powerful can get away with anything,” he said, adding that people have to come together against this injustice.
“Hopefully, Yasmin Rashid will prove to be victorious in this by-election,” he added.
Addressing the gathering before the party chairman, PTI’s Yasmin Rashid said that as a result of Imran Khan’s struggle, we saw the day when rule of law prevailed.
