Islamabad: April 25, 2020 (TNS): The 24th Foundation Day of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was celebrated across the country on Saturday.
Founded in Lahore on 25 April in 1996 by incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan, the party aims to create a welfare Madina-like state, with provision of all basic amenities of life to masses, including education, health and employment.
In order to achieve vision of Quaid-e-Azam, we have to ensure rule of law: PM
In his twitter message to mark the day, Prime Minister Imran Khan said twenty-four years ago, his party embarked on its mission of achieving vision of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah for Pakistan as a modern Islamic welfare state.
He said in order to achieve the vision of Quaid-e-Azam, we have to ensure rule of law, where all citizens are equal before the law while the powerful are brought under the law.
The Prime Minister expressed the confidence that his party’s second mission is also to break the stranglehold of the elite capture of the state and of nation’s resources; and redistribute these resources more equitably in order to lift poor out of poverty.
The Prime Minister said his party has been making a long and arduous struggle more than any other political party.
Imran Khan further stated that today, I want to remember PTI’s founding members, who are not with us anymore, including Naeemul Haq, Ahsan Rasheed and Saloni Bokhari.
