PESHAWAR: A day after a drone strike in North Waziristan killed four suspected militants, Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday defended his party's stance against drone strikes and reaffirmed his resolve to continue their struggle till the strikes were stopped.

He was talking to reporters at the inauguration of the Right To Information (RTO) office here at Tasneem Plaza in Peshawar cantonment.

The PTI chief said the party's stance on drones and the NATO supply was very clear, but peace could not be attained till the strikes halted completely.

He said the K-P government was the custodian of people's trust and dreams and all promises made to them will be fulfilled.

Imran Khan said PTI was working on a policy of zero-tolerance towards corruption, inefficiency and VIP Culture.

He said the provincial government was working hard for the service of K-P and to attain peace and prosperity through development. The government's goal was to introduce reforms for good governance and to bring social, economic and educational change for its people.

The main objective of the Right to Public Services Law 2013 is to improve service delivery, restore the confidence of masses in public offices and make government officials responsive to the needs of public.

Imran said PTI stood by the Pakthoons and was committed to addressing their problems.

Lauding sacrifices by the police, he said 700 policemen in K-P had been martyred in last six years in fight against terrorism.

On the subject of load-shedding, Khan said it was one of the major reasons behind the price hike and if PESCO was handed over to the K-P government, the move would not only put an end to power theft but help generate cheap electricity for people.

Chief Minister K-P Pervez Khattak and provincial ministers and office bearers of PTI were also present on the occasion.

More brainless critique for no reason other than to put cold, reflexive hatred on full display. We know you hate Imran--no one gives a hoot. Is there anything else?

@g: I wonder what will be your stance if you and your family was living that area.
