PM Nawaz has no moral obligations to rule Pakistan: Imran Khan


LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that corruption is like a termite which is damaging the country.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan, addressing his party’s rally in Lahore, PTI Chairman said that the country has forgotten its labourers and said that no one can even think of the problems labourers are going through.

Khan said that 2.2 million people in the country are unemployment. He added that 1.5 million people were unemployed last year.

PTI Chairman said that he will start taking steps for the labourers when he gets done with the Panama Leaks issue.

“We will give labourers their rights,” he added.

He claimed that the price of harvested wheat was Rs. 1300 but the farmers were given Rs. 1000 to 1100.

“Corruption is like termite which is damaging to the country. The nation does not know the dangers of it,” he added.

Recalling an incident, Khan said that he once visited a factory which used to produce export quality international football. “When I asked the owner of the factory as to how it was running so successfully, he replied that he provided every facility to his workers,” Khan added.

He stated that the whole nation becomes corrupt when their leader himself is corrupt. He asked, “How a country, rich with natural resources, can be develop if its ruler is corrupt?”

“Rulers in the west are not allowed to set up their own business because they only think of their own benefit,” PTI chairman said.

Khan demanded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to resign as the premier is not morally obliged to do so. “Cases of tax evasion, corruption, money laundering and lying to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) are filed against him.”

The PTI chairman added that Rs. 11 billion were spent from the national treasury for the construction of Raiwind estate. He went on to say that 2700 police officers are deployed for security purposes there.

People had gathered at the rally venue in large number to express support for their party.

Meanwhile, after mistreatment of women at a public gathering in Islamabad, PTI has decided to deploy ‘bouncers’ at its Lahore rally to avoid any untoward incident.

A bouncer is an unarmed burly man deployed at private and public gatherings to control crowds. Bouncers worldwide are required to have strong built, bear good character and not addicted to the use of drugs to say the least.

The PTI chief also issued directives to ensure that the women activists and supporters remain at a safe distance from male participants in order to avoid mistreatment of anyone.

Following the episode in Islamabad, PTI leader Uzma Kardar had complained to party chairman Imran Khan about mistreatment doled out to her by party activists.
