Leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan has said that even all parties jointly cannot stop PTI from succeeding. Speaking to the dinner reception of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry on Sunday here he said that his party will not join hands with any of the parties that are part of the present coalition government. He said that economic stability was not possible without good governance.
Imran Khan said that the success of the PTI was need of the hour and people will start seeing the real impact and face of the Tsunami just three months before the election.
Strongly criticizing the election of the prime minister, he said that it seems as if the national assembly was an auction house where a person was elected to the position of the prime minster despite all the charges of corruption leveled against him.
He said that the conspiracy against the Chief Justice has become known but still no party, except his PTI, has enough courage to criticize Malik Riaz Hussain. He said that these parties cannot dare to issue a statement against Malik because their leaders are business partners of the real estate tycoon.
Imran Khan said that his party will abolish the discretionary funds of the members of the national and the provincial assemblies. He said if the PTI came into power, it will not have more than 20 ministries in the cabinet. He said that a high powered complaint cell will be established in the Prime Minister’s House which will work round-the-clock to handle the complaint of the businessmen and investors.
He said that Pakistan has suffered a loss of 50b dollars by fighting the American war and if he came into power, the very first day he will disassociate the country from it.
He said that he will stabilize the economy through good governance and if his party did not find an honest candidate from any constituency, it will not issue ticket to anyone from there.
He said that peace cannot be established in Karachi through using the rangers, adding that the police will have to be depoliticised, followed by a de-weaponising campaign.
