"We are waging a crusade against corruption , No hung parliament " Imran Khan

MULTAN ,July 20th: PTI Chairman Imran Khan yesterday asked PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif to get ready to join Nawaz Sharif at Adiala Jail after July 25.
Imran Khan, in an interview, also said a powerful government is the need of the hour as a hung parliament would be weak. Khan conceded he might have to form a coalition government if he wins. But he ruled out an alliance with the two other largest parties, the PML-N or the PPP.
Addressing a public meeting at Multan’s Qasim Bagh Stadium, he criticised Shehbaz Sharif and said he played a big game with his brother and asked him to return to the country as millions of people were ready to welcome him. But when he returned, Shehbaz kept taking rounds of roads miles away from the airport. “Now I raise a simple question how a man who is not loyal to his brother how he can be loyal to the country,” he maintained. He alleged Shehbaz ordered Abid Boxer to kill his opponents in fake police encounters.
He said the dark night would end on July 25 and a new era of progress and prosperity would dawn. He said the country had never gone so down as it was today. “The biggest evidence is devaluation of rupee. Today dollar rate has gone beyond Rs 130,” he added. He said dollar rate was Rs 60, but when alligators like Nawaz and Zardari entered the scene, it went beyond Rs 130. He said Pakistan used to be the most prosperous country in the region and had the strongest institutions, including civil service, which executed mega projects like Tarbela, Mangla and Warsak dams besides launching PIA. He added PIA used to be the best airline of the world, but today it had gone bankrupt. He asked the people to come out on July 25 along with their families and friends for the sake of their coming generations and not for Imran Khan. He said Almighty Allah had given a golden chance to the nation to change its fate.
He claimed he would defeat both Zardari and Nawaz on July 25. He said both the looters had a competition to loot the country and both of them took away the national exchequer worth billions of rupees and stashed it abroad. He said the people asked him what PTI would do after coming into power. “I tell them we’ll unite the nation and the country. The nation is divided and hatred is spread under a vicious plan. We’ll end this mess,” he declared.
He said Nawaz and Ishaq Dar had left behind the biggest financial crisis in the country’s history. “We need to unite the nation to overcome this crisis,” he declared. He warned the nation would have to face price hike as the rates of oil, transport, edibles and other things would go up and the common man would become poorer, but eventually everything would be fine.
He declared PTI would fix all institutions and request the Supreme Court to deliver quick and inexpensive justice to the masses. He added the PTI government would give confidence to civil servants and tell them they are not servants of any family like Sharifs and Zardari. He added the PTI government would reorganise FBR and show the nation how to collect taxes. He affirmed tax rates would not go up, but tax collections would increase as his government would stop theft. He declared the PTI government would fix institutions like NAB, FBR, FIA and SECP.
He declared accountability and tax collections would begin from Imran Khan. He said the nation had the passion, but the looters disappointed it. Citing an example, he said the country faced losses worth billions of dollars in 2010 because of flash floods, but the nation got together and steered the country out of the crisis. He said during the PTI government, there would be no begging or foreign loans while the expenditures of President, prime minister, governor and chief minister houses would be cut considerably. He disclosed Rs 1 billion each was spent on President and prime minister houses and millions of rupees on governor houses. He said Nawaz Sharif spent Rs 1 billion on foreign tours while Rs 3.5 billion was spent on Raiwind security, Rs 700 million on construction of its walls and Rs 5.7 billion on Shehbaz Sharif’s camp office during the last 10 years.
He said the tax money collected from the people would be spent on them and the PTI would turn this nation in accordance with the dreams of Quaid-e-Azam. He said Allah has given everything to this country, but governance remained poor. Citing examples of Scandinavian countries, he said they had much less resources than Pakistan, but they are far more prosperous as their people are enjoying free education, health and justice. He said the rich have good hospitals, educational institutions and mineral water to drink, but the poor do not have such facilities and need help. “We have to lift the poor whose kids cannot go to school,” he asserted.
He said Multan has population of 4.4 million, but has just two hospitals. “Shehbaz Sharif spent Rs. 60 billion on metro whereas the people need hospitals and educational institutions. He should have spent this amount on hospitals and universities,” he added. He claimed the PTI would get votes two times more than the past from KP this time as a number of welfare projects like health insurance, establishment of 27 new hospitals, addition of 6,000 new doctors to the existing strength of 3,000, establishment of 59 new colleges and 10 new universities, including one international level institution were completed there. He said Sharifs got six turns in the Punjab, but could not set up even a single international standard university. “Their plan is to set up metros, construct roads, get kickbacks and take the money abroad,” he alleged. He vowed PTI would promote technical education and bring tourism to Pakistan by establishing tourism resorts.
He said PTI is determined to uplift the farmers of South Punjab as 75 percent people from three districts of this region are living below poverty line.
Meanwhile, addressing a gathering in Bahawalpur, Imran Khan said PTI would liberate the country from oppression, rid it of loans and straighten the national institutions besides bringing respect for police. Bhasha Dam is his party’s priority along with other plans for conserving and recycling water.
He said the fate of Pakistan is going to be decided on July 25 and asked the people to vote for the country and decide the future of the country. He added those who do not exercise their right to vote do not care for anyone. He quoted Aristotle, “If there is oppression and injustice in the society, every member will stand against it except two kinds of people, cowards and selfish.”
He said in South Punjab there is only one major hospital in the form of Nishtar Hospital in Multan. The Metro Bus Multan was started solely for the purpose of committing corruption; Rs 60 billion were spent on that project whereas a quality hospital could have been built with far less amount, adding Shaukat Khanum Hospital Peshawar was completed with the budget of Rs 4 billion.
IMRAN SCENTS VICTORY
Monitoring Desk adds: Imran Khan on Friday while once again announcing not to make alliance with any political party to form government said that powerful government is the need of the hour.
With polls predicting the possibility of a hung parliament, Khan conceded he might have to form a coalition government if he wins. But he ruled out an alliance with the two other largest parties, the PML-N or the PPP. "If you have a coalition with them, you defeat the whole purpose of coming into power."
In an interview with BBC, he said it would be better to sit on opposition benches than shaking hands with PPP and PML-N.
Khan said it would be unfortunate if there was a hung parliament in the country, adding the PTI would try to form government without entering into alliance with PPP or PML-N and if they couldn’t, they would prefer to sit on opposition benches.
The PTI chairman said hung parliaments are always weak, adding Pakistan needs a strong parliament. “A stronger government is needed to tackle the kind of economic crisis and difficulties Pakistan is facing,” he said.
Khan went on to say that it would be impossible to introduce reforms after entering alliance with PPP or PML-N, adding the plan to strengthen institutions would not be possible.
Imran told BBC his opponents in elections next week will "lose because of their track record" when in power. Khan dismissed concerns about the fairness of the elections.
"The status quo parties are suddenly saying the elections won't be free and fair. The reason is all the opinion polls show the PTI is surging… so they're already seeing the writing on the wall."
Khan told BBC he believed the trial of Nawaz Sharif had raised awareness of the knock-on effects of corruption. "That's how a country doesn't have the money for its expenditure, it doesn't have money for human development."PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Friday stressed the need for funding human development than spending money on building of roads and metro trains. He also stated that country makes progress by good governance and strengthening the institutions.
He said this while addressing public rallies at Bahawalpur and Multan in connection with party’s election campaign. Incessant rain also disturbed his schedule to address the rallies as the inundated places made it impossible to hold a rally there.
“Nations make progress if the public money is spent on peoples welfare and justice is dispensed to all and sundry”, he maintained, adding, that PTI will focus more on human development after coming into power. Imran Khan believed that Punjab will decide the fate of entire Pakistan on July 25.
In his address , Imran also highlighted the achievements of his party’s previous government in KP province and especially mentioned the de-politicisation of police and measures taken to improve the health and education sectors. He claimed that introduction of health cards and health insurance was the biggest achievement of his party’s government in the KP province.
Criticising the Sharifs for what he called their misplaced priorities, Imran said he would improve the condition of schools and hospitals across the country after coming into power. “Building roads and running the metro train takes you nowhere”, he stated.
On foreign policy issues, he said that his party will cultivate the kind of relations with the US and the neighbouring countries that mutually benefit all the countries. Addressing the traders at ceremony in Lahore, he criticised PML-N leadership for destroying country’s economy contrary to their claims of having the services of best economic managers.
He said that unprecedented depreciation of rupee vis-a-vis the US dollar had further added to the country’s debt burden which had already soared to one trillion dollars. Value of people’s deposits in banks has also fallen by 20 per cent, he said. “Earlier, it happened during Zardari’s era and now the PML-N government further weakened the economy, he said, adding, that a weak economy will cause downfall of all institutions. Imran Khan said that the leaders who lived abroad could not understand peoples miseries.
In a reference to Mian Nawaz Sharif, he said that sons of a three-time Prime Minister were settled in London who would not consider them Pakistanis. He said that he wondered how they became billionaire in few years.
He also took strong exception PML-N leaders statements demanding of overseas Pakistanis to bring their money to the country. “It is a strange paradox that they expect their citizens to bring the money back but would deposit their own money in the foreign accounts”, he deplored.
PTI Chairman told traders that his party’s government will make a joint policy in consultation with the traders. He further stated that his government will broaden the tax net by lowering the tax rates.
He argued that American economy got a boost after Trump administration lowered the taxes. He said that the traders community could play greater role in economic development provided they are given incentives to make investment in different sectors.
He also lauded the traders who helped him raise funds for the Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
