Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has warned the establishment that people will hold them responsible if the country continues to go down like this, reported 24News HD TV Channel.
Addressing a crowded rally at Gujranwala on Saturday, he said that he has written a letter to all the district organizations of the party, get ready, prepare the workers, when I give the call, everyone has to be ready. “People will take to the streets to protest peacefully for forcing the government for elections.
He said the national security of a country is compromised by a weak economy. If the country and its economy were to plummet any further under the incumbent imported government, the people will not forgive them for the sinking economy, he added.
The PTI chief blasted the government for increasing the prices of oil by Rs90 per liter under the pressure of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). "We had not bowed to the IMF and tried our best to provide relief to people," Imran Khan said and termed the present economic indicators of the country alarming.
Imran Khan said that following the no-confidence move against him, his political opponents had anticipated a wave of celebration among the public. “But instead the public took to the streets to protest instead,” he added.
The former prime minister Imran Khan said that his government was near to getting oil from Russia at a low price. He further said that Moscow agreed to provide gas and wheat at a 30 percent lesser price.
Imran said the government tried suppressing his support among the public through the use of force and tear gas shelling, thinking that “they will be scared and are mummy-daddy and won’t be able to take the pressure.” But they don’t know that my nation has been awakened for taking true freedom for themselves.
He said that the US has made Pakistan a slave without having to invade it. The people of Pakistan will never accept the imported government," he said.
Imran Khan slammed the present government over the inflation and said that the prices of essential commodities and others are now touching new record levels as compared to the PTI-led government. Prices of petrol and diesel are high despite their low prices in the international market, he added.
PTI Chairman said that the overseas Pakistanis are ready to invest in the country. If one million to two million overseas Pakistanis invest in the country, we will be able to out of this resent the poor economic situation.
He said that Ehsas program and Sehat program are operating very successfully and helping the neediest.
He recalled that foreign remittances were record high. Exports were a record high. The construction industry was booming. Overseas Pakistanis were being given 100% tax exemption on their investment, he added.
He reiterated that only fresh elections could end political instability in the country. He asked the youth to be prepared for his call for getting real independence in the country.
Imran said that fair and fresh elections were the only solution to steer the country out of the economic and political morass. People should be given a chance to elect a government to meet the challenges, he added.
"Shehbaz Sharif is a good boot-polisher, but he has no guts to overcome the challenges," he added.
Khan also talked about his ill-fated "Azadi March" held on May 25, which was called off after a strong curb down by the Shehbaz Sharif government.
Imran Khan said that after an increase in the prices of oil and electricity tariff, the government had increased the gas tariff by 45 per cent also.
Earlier, he said no nation can progress until it breaks the shackles of slavery, adding that Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had freed the nation from the slavery of the British but the nation was now plagued with a different type of slavery. He reiterated his claim of him having been removed from the prime minister’s office at the behest of foreign powers and through local players.
He said the nation was also plagued by two other kinds of slavery: poverty and mental limitation. He said he had tried to break the former of the two by bringing up the underprivileged through Single National Curriculum.
He said I am very grateful to everyone, I will need the youth of the nation for real freedom.
