Imran Khan urges people to come out on streets against rulers389 views
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan warned that Pakistan would be ruined if people failed to come out on streets against the incumbent government.
“Everyone should join politics. Quaid-e-Azam and Nelson Mandela were also politicians,” Khan told a gathering of supporters in Lahore.
“To all those who are saying our shops and our businesses will be closed due to our protests, I say think about the poor and the repressed classes. How can we justify to ourselves that so many of our fellow countrymen go hungry without two meals in a day?” Khan questioned.
Khan claimed that Pakistan would witness its biggest ever protest in Islamabad next month.
Pakistan, he said, is worse than some of the poorest nations in the world in the global hunger index and the root cause of all of this is corruption.
“Today Pakistan’s debt stands at Rs 22,500 billion. Our exports are falling, our foreign remittances are falling. How are we going to cover all these debts?”
Nations like Pakistan are used and bound by chains of debt and then made to do the bidding of those we are indebted to. And on the other side is a handful of corrupt who are hanging on for dear life to this system that facilitates them
“These are not democrats, they are a Mafia. There are clear lines drawn in Pakistan today. On one side is the awaam, and mafia on the other side.
The opposition in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa meanwhile says don’t investigate Nawaz Sharif. Where in the world do democrats talk like this?
“This is monarchy, not democracy. Even Chief Justice of Pakistan has endorsed my stance,” he added.
People are fed up of corrupt system, he added.
The PTI chief lamented that a man of Aitezaz Ahsan’s stature has to stand behind Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “What is the difference between Maryam Nawaz as a princess and Hamza Shahbaz as a monarch prince? Bilawal comes, and these seasoned politicians stand behind them like these are the new kings in waiting.”
Hamza Sharif even finds his own waist coat too heavy and people doing politics for 30 years are carrying it for him standing with heads bowed, he added. ” Can we imagine Obama being away from White House and his daughters sitting and making decisions?.”
