ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) announced its manifesto during a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday.

While addressing the press conference, party member Shireen Mazari said that according to the party manifesto, justice will be made equal for all.

“There will be no difference between the rich and the poor,” said Mazari.

Regarding the Karachi unrest issue, the PTI manifesto stated that they will start a movement against any political party, who has militant wings or holds arms.

“Our ulterior motive is to make Karachi free from arms and ammunition.”

The manifesto also outlined that the budget of the defense sector will be rationalised and promised to put an end to load shedding two to three years after they come to power.

The party policy further avowed that railway ministry will be abolished and Pakistan International Airline (PIA) will be removed from defense ministry’s supervision and will become directly accountable to the public.

“Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA) and PTV will be made independent bodies and, for good governance, all the government files and records will be made public online,” the manifesto stated.

PTI Chief Imran Khan said he is “proud” of his party.

“No other party has made any such policies, if you want you can compare our manifesto to theirs,” Khan claimed.

Some salient features of the manifesto are:

 

  • To bring the nation out of the folds of ‘War on Terrorism’.
  • Establish a 150,000 seat call centre to take service calls and facilitate e-governance. This would generate 250,000 new jobs.
  • Establish a whistle-blowers programme, which will allow citizens to report unsavoury behavior by individuals or entities via a dedicated phone line.
  • Announce local government elections schedule within the first 100 days of coming into power.
  • Introduce regulations to ensure that the fees structure of the private schools is commensurate with the quality of education they provide.
  • Engage professional services to track overseas cash and non-cash assets owned by Pakistanis.
  • Withdraw all indemnities, privileges and rebates or subsidies extended to elected representatives and government officials, including the President and Prime Minister.Read the entire manifesto here.

He is up against the deep rooted feudal lords who will rally for either PPP or PML-N. These deep rooted feudals control the votes of the majority of Pakistanis living on their lands in Punjab, Baluchistan & Sindh.

    If he wants to be the next PM – he would need to make an electoral alliance as well as a coalition government. The rest is just talking!

    I’m usually a critic of PTI, but this is not a bad list, with all things considered and should be given credit in the way the problems are summarily identified in the ‘where we are’ opening (giving you ease in the beginning on identifying internal security problems which critics accuse IK sometimes of not naming) and the steps in the ‘our plan’ solution (though some solution points I wish were more concrete, it is sound and encouraging).

    However, they should not have released an incomplete draft version (overall a full working version should have been released much earlier).

    Leaving the ‘Equality for Minorities’ section without an ‘Our Plan’ section, with a ‘further input welcomed’ at the end, when all other manifesto points’ sections are filled out, is a bad PR mistake, considering PTI gets criticized and accused for favouring relations with religious parties seen as unfriendly, if not hostile, to minorities. The author’s intent clearly not sinister, and it will escape the attention of most majority Pakistanis, but it maybe perceived as a lack of priority, lack of inclusiveness and naive in the eyes of minorities.

    Imran Khan is the only hope for Pakistan now. He has highlighted all the issued to the core. I think this is time for us to bring change in Pakistan. PML-N and PPP has done nothing for Pakistan and its poor people. PPP knows how to buy votes through Benazir Income Support Program. On the other hand PML-N has acted like a cheap stage show performer by selling ROTI to poor through tandoor. Now metro buses for few thousand people. They have completely ignored the poor punjabis in interior. Vote for PTI now. I used to be a MQM supporter but not any more. I actually hate MQM, PPP, PML-N and ANP. Don’t forget the american agent JUI-(F).

    I was just thinking that if this manifesto is implemented wht ll gonna happen…

    privatizing railway means foreigner investors will come and will run metro high speed trains…ultimately public ll experience a luxury traveling.

    secondly depolitisizing PIA means it gonna be profitable

    Please refer to PTI website or to imran khan facebook page under the article PTI releases its Manifesto for the published manifesto. Typically, ET has yet again been unprofessional and tried to pass of a draft copy as a the finished product, perhaps to
    slight IK yet again.
