KARACHI: Members of the youth wing of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) gathered at the press club to protest against corruption and inflation in the country and announce a revolt against corrupt politicians on Sunday.
The president of the PTI youth wing, Subhan Ali Sahil, said that the present government took advantage of the judiciary to come to power and had set records in the history of the country in corruption. “The present democratic government crossed the limits of inflation and the people are forced to sell their children because of poverty,” said Sahil. “The people don’t have food, clothes or homes. They [the government] have made the people naked and hungry.”
According to the president, the PTI rally in Karachi on December 25 proved that the youth of Karachi trust only Imran Khan and they stand united under his leadership.
Ashraf Qureshi, the president of the Karachi division, said that the party men will besiege the houses of politicians who looted the national exchequer and will not let them leave the country. He said that prices have tripled in the last four years of the present democratic government. “Our revolution will bring justice to the people,” he said. “Everyone will enjoy equal rights. It is a guarantee for a better future for the youth.”
