Pakistan's biggest problem is corruption: Imran Khan

Web Desk February 11, 2012

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan kept reiterating his stance on Saturday while talking to the media at the Karachi airport. “Pakistan’s biggest problem is corruption.”

Khan held “every single person” in the government responsible for the “rampant” corruption in the country. He said billions “were looted from the country in the past four years… 70 million Pakistanis are living under the poverty line because of this,” he stated.

Emphasising on his support for the judiciary, Khan paid tribute to the chief justice of Pakistan and hoped that someday, the law would supersede the corrupt.

Addressing the prime minister’s contempt of court issue, the party leader said: “The whole drama is being played to hide the theft of one person, [President Asif Ali] Zardari.”

@ Sami Baloch You are right but that's not the only issue. Due to law and order situation, forceful conversion and abduction of minorities in Baluchistan as well as killing of settlers is also an important issue but media never highlights that. Don't you agree?

Corruption exists in every country. You cannot completely eradicate it but you could reduce it though. Corruption exists in other countries as well but they work as well so the effects of corruption is not so serious. In my opinion Pakistan biggest problems are law and order and energy crisis. Corruption is not the main problem.

@ Sami Baloch You are right that IK should take notice of Baluchistan situation but you are wrong that media didn't take notice. Baluchistan issue was highlighted more by media even to the point of exaggeration. As for American congress please don't get me started that why they did it. If you are clever enough then you will know.
