To commence the Million Tree Tsunami campaign, Imran planted a tree outside the airport. In his brief address, the PTI chairman said that the government has no authority to privatise PIA as it has only three months left in power.
He said national assets are not privatised in any country and PTI will end political interference in PIA and make it a successful airline.
Later, while addressing a doctor’s forum, Imran spoke about the city’s biggest challenge – ownership. “The biggest problem of Karachi is that no one takes responsibility of the city,” he said.
The PTI chairman stated that Pakistan is the most backwards nation in the region in terms of human development. He also stressed the importance of improving the police in Karachi.
