Farmers’ problems will be resolved on priority: Imran
From Our Correspondent
MUZAFFARGARH: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that his party will introduce the local bodies system after coming to power.
Addressing a public gathering at Sports Ground here on Friday, the PTI chairman criticised the Metro Bus Service launched at the cost of billions of rupees, terming it the wastage of public money. “The loadshedding should have been ended with the money spent on the bus service.”
Imran Khan promised better health and education system after coming to power. He again challenged PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif for a debate in a TV show, saying that he would ask him what they would do during their sixth term in Punjab if they had failed for five times. “The PTI will resolve the farmers’ problems on priority basis. No MPA or MNA will be given funds in the name of development and only local authorities will have access to the money allocated for the benefit of the people,” he maintained. He promised that he would earn pride for the country during his tenure.
The PTI chairman said that he with other parties would stand by the oppressed, minorities and the poor. He promised that he would never leave his people and asked his supporters to follow the same principle. Imran asked the people to prepare for a change. Nawabzada Mansoor Ahmed Khan, Sardar Abdul Hayee Khan Dasti, Arshad Khan Qaldanrani and Mian Sajid Naeem Qureshi were also present.
