Ex-MNAs, MPAs from Gujrat,Dipalpur join PTI in Lahore
Chairman Tehreek e Insaf Imran Khan has said that parliament’s resolutions are being blatantly ignored to reopen Nato Supply routes. Speaking at a press conference at Zaman Park, Lahore he said that any such decision would be in contradiction to the sentiments and aspirations of the people of Pakistan.
The press conference was held to formally announce joining of former MNA from Gujrat Chaudhry Mubashir Hussain, former MPA from Dipalpur Malik Nazar Fareed Khokar, former Nazims Chaudhry Asad Nawaz Khan, Malik Mobeen Khokar, Malik Azhar Hussain Khokar, Haji Sardar Majeed Dogar, Chaudhry Ahmed Nawaz Khan, Muhammad Iqbal Mahar, Chaudhry Tariq Irshad Ali Khan, Rao Zaeem Haider Khan, Lawyers Wing members Imran Chaudhry, Malik Aftab Aslam, Mian Muhammad Akram, Sardar Faiz Ahmed Khan, Sardar Muhammad Ahmed and Nayyar Hussain of Nayyar Carpets.
He said that it is absolutely clear that the Nato Supply routes were not closed on principles. Rulers of Pakistan closed supply routes to bargain a higher price for themselves from the United States, he said. He said that corrupt governments have failed to provide any kind of relief to the people of Pakistan. He said both Federal and Provincial governments are spending public funds on their own luxuries while the people are dejected in face of unprecedented price hikes, unemployment and load shedding. Criticizing the Punjab government he said that laptops are being distributed for votes without any consideration for proper utilization of public funds. Punjab government does not even have enough money to procure wheat this season due to massive corruption and poor governance, he added.
He said that people have lost all hope from PML-N and PPP and are joining PTI because the party is a symbol of true change in the country. He emphasized that the next general elections should be conducted in a transparent manner.
PTI Central Information Secretary Shafqat Mahmood, President Lahore Mian Mahmood-Ur-Rasheed, senior leader Zaheer Abbas Khokar and others were also present at the occasion.
