TOBA TEK SINGH: All the corrupt politicians will fight the elections together because they have common interests, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Saturday.

He was addressing a rally in Toba Tek Singh.

Criticising the performance of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), Imran claimed that the Bilawal House in Lahore was built with public money.

He further accused the Punjab government of using the entire province’s budget on a single project, referring to the metro service.

Lamenting the deteriorating economic condition of the common man, Imran said the people of Pakistan should decide against voting for parties whose leaders have money saved in banks abroad.

Telling the rally participants to prepare for the upcoming elections, the PTI chief said “he knows well how to play this important match.”

    There is no question about it that PML(N) and PPP are two finalists and finalists always play hard for the first position. On the other hand, PTI has not played a single practice match and boycotted all previous tournaments.. Those who think PTI can win elections, live in fools paradise.

    IK has been the hardest working man in Pakistan. He had a long history of earning his own money, while the other politician’s use “other people’s money”. What has IK done for a living in the last 20 years? Would he ever earn any money to take care of his own kids or he would continue to beg others to keep his lifestyle?

    Just out of curiosity… how much do you get paid by PML-N for saying BS about PTI & IK?

    @Roni:
    I hope you realize what you are saying and that is that people who run NGOs (even if it be United Nations staff) are all beggars? Secondly, for IK in specific, he has mentioned many times, that he does not take out money from the donations but rather does cricket commentary on quarterly or as-needed basis to make enough money to survive.
