Imran Khan says media being used against PTI

Khan says that the media was bribed for working against his party.


Umar Farooq December 16, 2011

Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Friday, alleged that the media was being used against his party.

Khan, while speaking at the residence of Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan-who had recently joined the PTI in Mardan, said that the media was being bribed to further propaganda against the PTI.

Replying to a question by The Express Tribune, Khan said that he can name a number of people who were continuously launching negative propaganda against the PTI.

PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi further explained what Khan meant, adding that the “state-run television and radio along with the government machinery was being used against the PTI.”

Newcomers to PTI 

Recently former Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) leader, Shabbir Jokhio, along with supporters from Memon Goth in Gadap Town, has crossed over to the PTI. The move came after several meetings with the PTI’s leadership in Sindh.

Air Marshal (Retd) Asghar Khan, who was heading the little-known Pakistan Tehrik-e-Istaqlal, also joined the PTI at a joint news conference with the PTI Chairman.

Separately, at another news conference Khan was planning to welcome Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Irrigation Minister Pervez Khattak to his party but some of his old workers from Nowshera clashed and opposed the decision and accused Khattak of corruption.

I want to draw your attention to an agony that my family went through yesterday. In the wee hours on Sunday morning, my phone rang and all of my family members, including my elderly mother-inlaw, suddenly woke up. A number of bad thoughts were popping up in our mind.

On checking the CLI, I figured out that the call was from 042-38375454. It was an unknown number and we were annoyed with the caller. When I picked up the phone I heard Imran Khan saying, "Assalam-o-alaikum, mein Imran Khan aap k ghar, aap k shehr aa raha hoon...." I interrupted the caller by asking whether it is real Imran Khan or is it just a recording. The caller immediately disconnected after my querry. I figured out that it was a recording playing Imran Khan's voice.

May I request Imran Khan to forbid his people from calling general public at odd hours?
