MULTAN (Muslim Times) – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) is set to exercise political muscle in Multan on Friday as part of their ongoing election campaign for general polls 2018.
Party workers have completed all the preparations in Kila Kohna Qasim Bagh Stadium.
PTI chairman Imran Khan will address the public gathering.
Strict security arrangements have been assured and the venue is decorated with party flags and banners. A 15-feet high and 50-feet long stage has been made.
On Thursday, Khan held rallies at various places in Lahore and spoke to the party workers. He lashed out at his opponents and asserted that he will prove Lahore is a part of PTI.
Addressing a campaign rally in NA-132 constituency, the PTI chairman claimed Shehbaz Sharif used police to do his bidding. “Abid Boxer says he killed people at the behest of Shehbaz Sharif,” he said.
“After Nawaz, Adiala Jail is now waiting for Shehbaz Sharif,” he added.
Imran said that if elected, he will root out corruption by strengthening institutions, will bring investment from abroad and will provide better job opportunities for young people
He also promised changes in the agriculture and education sectors and wide-ranging reforms to introduce a culture of paying tax.
“With the grace of God, we will make a new Pakistan which will be self-sufficient and will stand on its own feet, will prosper and where government will serve its people,” he added.
Lambasting the former Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government over their alleged failure to address Pakistan’s economic woes, the PTI chairman said, “So far I came to hear that the PML-N has an experienced team and will improve the condition of the economy.”
“During the last month, depreciation of rupee added to debt burden. Deposits in banks fell by 20 per cent. Economy, manufacturing and the institutions have been destroyed.
“Earlier, it happened in Zardari’s era and now PML-N has further weakened the economy. Downfall of every institution in the country entailed feeble economy.”
