BANNU: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan announced to spend Eidul Fitr with the internally displaced persons (IDPs)of North Waziristan during a visit to their camps in Bannu, Express News reported on Sunday.

“I am familiar with the difficulties faced by the IDPs,” said Khan. “It is not easy for anyone to leave their house.”

The PTI chairman said that he and his party were aware of the sufferings of the IDPs and would not leave them alone at this hour of difficulty.

The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government will take all possible measures to help the IDPs and minimise their sufferings, the PTI chief said.

He further added that the K-P government would establish more camps to accommodate the IDPs.

Khan also met a grand jirga of North Waziristan during his visit.

    Meanwhile Nawaz Sharif announced that he will spend Eid with a metro bus.

    Such publicity stunts won’t work. IDPs are mad at him. He left them to suffer when they needed him most.

    Huh Imran Khan is Taliban Khan. Thats why tribal jirga met him.
    The same Waziristan Grand Jirga refused to meet Nawaz Sharif when he visited last week. Speaks volumes about who is the People’s man.
    We are proud of Mian Nawaz Sharif leadership

    He could have done that silently but why miss a great publicity stunt!

    And for PTI supporters, another reason to bestow Imran the God-like status he already enjoys among mostly teenagers of the country.

    He should invite the egghead brothers to come and spend a night in a desert tent in Bannu to show their bleeding heart “solidarity” with their displaced Pashtun brothers.

    @Ahmed,

    If he visited IDPs silently, people like you would say he hadn’t done anything!

    You do remember there is something in this world that can’t be straightened? Some critics are like that. ;)

    A copy/paste gesture straight out of Shahbaz Sharif’s book who has been spending his last 3 Eid-ul-Fitrs in the flood effected areas of Southern Punjab.

    No matter what you do IK, you can even stand on that egg-head of yours but you would never and I repeat never get to wear that sherwani which has been dangling in your closet and collecting dust since 11th May, 2013.

    This Guy is a fraud; as most political and military leadership of Pakistan currently are; he wants to accompany the military brass in Khaki to the IDP camp!
