BAHAWALNAGAR: Commending the lawyers for running a successful movement for the supremacy of law and constitution in the country, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) vice chairman, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Saturday that his party was now running a movement for change.
This is the only reason, Qureshi said, that within no time the PTI had become the voice of the people of Pakistan, while addressing a public meeting at Chak Amir Laleka, Bahawalnagar.
The ex-foreign minister of Pakistan, the first after yet another spell of military rule in the country, said that that now no one could dare to impose martial law in Pakistan. He added that the incumbent government, of which he was a part for the better part of three years, was but a guest for two more months.
Qureshi said that lawyers ran a successful movement for the supremacy of law and constitution in country, and now the PTI has been running a movement of change which the youth along with lawyers and farmers were leading.
He said that both ruling parties (PPP and PML (N)) had put the country on the verge of destruction and multiplied the misery for the people.
Politicians of today, he said, except those in the PTI were pursuing vested interests and had failed to deliver and that they should quit. The people, the PTI leader said, were buried alive under corruption, unemployment and inflation bred out of the inefficiency of present rulers.
Qureshi further said that PTI chairman Imran Khan would soon visit the far flung districts to give people the hope of change.
On this occasion, the former adviser to Chief Minister Mian Shoukat Ali Laleka announced his decision to join the PTI, while about 80 ex nazims, vice nazims ,ex Chairmen of TMA and several councillors also joined PTI.
