LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf  (PTI) leader Imran Khan said on Thursday that the PPP and PML-N were trying to “fool the nation”.

While addressing students of Allama Iqbal Medical College in Lahore, Khan said that both parties were trying to fool the people by playing their political blame games.

He said the present government is not concentrating on major issues like power generation and load-shedding. He further added that the country’s leaders are too busy with their foreign trips to deal with the people of their own country.

Khan also reiterated his warning of closing down NATO supply routes if drone strikes continue.

Earlier, Khan had said that if drone strikes inside Pakistan do not stop within 30 days, protesters will block all NATO supply routes across Pakistan.

PTI had held a two day protest in Peshawar over the issue of drone attacks.

    What about the deadline for eliminating bomb blasts in Karachi or giving an ultimatum for catching the suicide bombers who are roaming loose.

    Kayani said drones should stop, and he got the answer. Now, if the drones fly again, what will Imran Khan do next.

    In democracy people hire people to govern a state, and hiring is based on which candidate is best among the applicants, and off course no candidate is ideal, so among the candidates that we have in Pakistan, I.e nawaz sharif, asif zardari, altaf hussain, asfand wali, pervez ilahi, pervez musharaf, imran khan, panel of Pakistani voters need to select one of them based on their integrity, financial cleanliness, service record, achievements in life, commitment to the nation, vision for the future, policy and plan for future etc. If we judge all candidates against this criteria, who is a clear winner, I think Imran Khan. So whoever thinks he isn’t, he should tell us who is? If one thinks none of them, he need to come forward and present himself as a leadership candidate instead of doing empty commentary.Recommend

    Imran is using drones as a political movie to enhance is popularity, which speaks volumes about the level of intellect in this country where he didn’t generate much mass support in the past when he spoke about more sensible issues like corruption, mismanagement of the nation’s resources etc.

    In short, the end justifies the means. He’s honest and has a track record of delivering under pressure, and never giving up. Hopefully, he’ll be the next PM.Recommend
