FAISALABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan alleged that two major parties have made an agreement that only they will rule Pakistan turn by turn. However, he said it is now the turn of this country’s youth to rule Pakistan.

The PTI chairman said this while addressing a gathering in Faisalabad. According to him, the PPP and PML-N made an agreement under the 18th Amendment because Nawaz Sharif wanted a third term in office.

“He hasn’t had enough,” Khan said.

Khan declared that the two parties take turns “looting the nation” before handing the government over to the other party.

He addressed Nawaz Sharif saying, “Your turn will not come. It is now the turn of Pakistan’s youth.”

In an earlier statement, Khan said that Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari could never be trusted to keep a check on each other. Corrupt politicians, he said, would strike a deal to get out. Both of the two ferry off the bulk of their ill-gotten wealth just so they can avoid paying taxes.

    Khan is absolutely correct, we don’t want Zardari & Company and Nawaz Sharief & Partners again in the power..we have had enough from these 2 parties.

    Let’s give chance to Imran Khan or General Musharraf.

    Yes, Imran Bhai, your strategy to keep Nawaz Sharif out is perfect, but there is one problem, if Nawaz Sharif doesn’t win, PPP wins again. PPP and PML(N) are two finalists. Opposing one team is helping the other finalist.

    Nawaz Sharif made billions out of the yellow cab scheme, and then illegally channeled the money out of the country. He is also too much indebted (almost enslaved) to the Saudis, which is the reason behind his liaison with the banned organizations. I doubt he will do anything for their crackdown. His power will embolden the banned organizations, and Pakistani will be virtually governed by Saudis.

    Insha’Allah Imran Khan is going to win next elections. We are fed up with all the ruling parties. This nation has tried diffrent Muslim leagues, PPP, MQM, ANP, MMA and military but all failed.
    Now is the time to go for someone who has never been tried before. Insha’Allah Imnran Khan will bring the revolution in the country. To make this happen we need to stand with him and also need to convince others for the betterment of the generations to come.

    Following him for the last 10 years. He started off alright but wavering now a days in his policies. Anti-US, anti-PPP, Anti-PML etc have become his policies. So far the usual PAK tantrum of anti-India, and Kashmir jihad are not heard from him.

    However, he has a huge following among youth of PAK who identify themselves with him fairly well.

    He needs to bring in good committee of people in his party governance and start to elect his party nominees based on local party member nomination in each area rather than appointing them from top. This will bring in lot of people who are in side lines.

    A) Draw eminent people of Paksitan from all walks of life from academia, public service, retired civil servants, military, press, banking, commerce etc.
    B) Form political manifesto of the party on domestic affairs first, province specific agenda second, and foreign policy third.
    C) organize public meetings across the country and convey the party’s position not his to the masses.
    D) Announce local party office elections and ask them to submit nominations and draw up on the best available local talent pool.
    E) Canvass, Canvass, Canvass and convince the people that the promises his party is making are executable if put under the microscope.

    Otherwise, his party will become an another cult politics. Whether he will be a good leader for PAK is upto the PAK people to decide.

    IK is spot on. The corruption of “Mr. Clean” is obvious to everyone. Mr. Sharif made billions through Yellow Cab scheme, and then illegally chanelled it out of the country, while the accounts of the other Pakistanis were being frozen.

  • Pakistani
    Oct 8, 2011 - 8:15PM

    Interestingly when IK said to bring Taliban to negotiation table everyone labelled him a Taliban sympathizer. Now everyone is saying the exact same thing. IK is a visionary. He is progressive, he would never let Taliban mindset takeover. He might be a threat to our pseudo rich elite who have eaten away Pakistan but he is no Taliban. Imran is hope!

    As a Pakistani I have decided to stand behind him. Winning or losing, it is in the hands of Allah but at least we should stand up for the right person. We need to get rid of all the dirty lot which has made Pakistan its personal playground for vested interests, even if takes a hundred years.

    Nawaz bashing will leave him nowhere instead he should talk more about how he is going to change things when he comes to power or if he comes to power… i think he has realized that there are only two types of vote bank in Pakistan PPP and anti PPP. now he is trying to cash in on the anti PPP one by mud slinging N. but in the end he is only going to help PPP. i beleive he should have some kind of a seat adjustment with N

    So how much taxes does Nawaz Sharif and Co. pay? Or how much “Commission” do they make from every deal done in Punjab? The PML-N and PPP are FAILURES, and Imran has rightfully targeted both of them.PTI is the largest threat to them atm and they are trying their best to level false and baseless allegations against him…

    No doubt that he is sincere in what he says but that still doesn’t make him right. The educated, the youth, the women and the minorities should be very afraid if he gets to power as it will usher in a new era of Talibanization. He will make them ‘main stream’.

    Imran is no threat to Nawaz Sharif. He (Imran) is famous for making stupid decisions at crucial times. Most probably he will boycott election and leave all his supporters plucking their hair. If not, then Nawaz Sharif will adjust seats with JI and leave Imran stranded with pads on. In Pakistani politics, regional and national parties have confirmed seats, without adjustments and alliances, its impossible to win majority in any future election. Solo flights are things of the past. As a cricketer he should know that if you are a bowler, you need fielders and if you are batsman, you need another bastman at non stiker’s end. He was a great cricketer in the past, now he is not a politician nor a cricketer.

    Great going khan sahab. We are with you no matter you win or lose. Its the fight you are putting up against these dacoits and fraudsters that matters the most. You are the first and only leader of Pakistan who has openly declared all his assets willingly the details of which can be viewed on your website openly and this is the testament of your honesty.

    We know these looters will do everything in their power to bring you down by making you a part of nonsensical conspiracies. Some will say you are Taliban sympathiser others will tie you with jews. And we the people will simply laugh at their sheer stupidity because your whole public life is an open book for all to see. Your innumerable successful public service initiatives make us believe that you will deliver in your future endeavours too

    Almighty will be with you just like during the Shaukat Khanam campaign because your intentions are nobel and you care for us and this is all that matters to us.

    Nawaz Sharif made billions out of the yellow cab scheme, Qarz Utaro Mulk Sunwaro and Motorway porject and then illegally channeled the money out of the country. I could still remember the time when he started his political career and he had nothing and now he has tens of mills, factories and businesses. What his source of income? Why he hesitates to declare all this assets? He looted Pakistan through Qarz Utaro Mulk Sunwaro and schemes like yellow cab. He is also too much indebted (almost enslaved) to the Saudis, which is the reason behind his liaison with the banned organizations. I doubt he will do anything for their crackdown. His power will embolden the banned organizations, and Pakistani will be virtually governed by Saudis.
