Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said he would ‘stand firm against all attempts of the coalition government to push him to the wall, 24NewsHD TV channel reported Thursday.
Addressing a public gathering in Sargodha, he claimed that he and his party leaders have been facing fake cases for the past four months after being ousted from the office of the prime minister.
He added the federal government is ‘managing the media’ and the persons supporting his ideology bore the brunt. He said he would not bow to such tactics as no bid can shatter his resolve to fight for ‘real freedom’.
He came down hard on the federal government for what he called bringing in unprecedented inflation and adding to public woes.
He continued: “The people have been making a litany of complaints about the surge in prices of petroleum products and power tariff but to no avail.
"People are finding it difficult to make both end meet. This coalition government has nothing to do with public service.”
According to him, all of his rivals are looters and he reiterated his demand for holding a ‘free and fair election' for the sake of the country.
Earlier in his address at the lawyers' convention in Sargodha, the ex-premier said when the population in the world increased, the provinces also increased.
“The PTI’s goal is to make easy the life of the common persons and I am in favour of making every division a province,” he said.
“If there are more units, people's problems will be solved soon and with a good local government system, people's problems will be fixed at the earliest,” the former prime minister stressed.
In the feudal system, the feudal lord considers himself above the law, he said.
The cricketer-turned-politician said that 26 years ago, he started his struggle for the sake of justice and the just right to ‘real freedom’.
He urged people from various walks of life to join his ‘struggle against slavery'. He laid stress on following the philosophy of Allama Iqbal.
Imran Khan said an imported government has been imposed and it just obeys its foreign masters … it has nothing to do with the public service delivery.
Imran Khan said that they (the rival party leaders) filed cases against him when they faced humiliation in Saudi Arabia and they are now going to register another case for ‘insulting the IMF’.
