Referring to large public gatherings of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), former foreign minister and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that never in the history have masses so warmly welcomed a party after its ouster than the receptions being hosted by them in the honour of PTI now, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.
Addressing the party’s corner meeting at Daulat Gate Chowk in Multan, his hometown, on Sunday night, he said that people had rejected the ‘imported’ government. “The way people are turning out at the PTI rallies is enough to show that they are not happy with the change of faces,” he remarked.
He urged the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to simultaneously hear the foreign funding cases against Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), adding if it did not do so, it would be safe to assume that it was part of a conspiracy to ban PTI and declare former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan ‘ineligible’ to contest the general elections.
“The history of these political parties which today have formed the coalition government at Center is an open secret,” he said, adding, “Both PPP and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) have seldom been cordial towards each other. Similarly, Prime Minister and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif had once said that he would drag PPP Co-Chairman on roads for corruption.”
Asking the gathering whether they would vote for the party’s ‘turncoats’ in the next elections, former foreign minister said that the PTI had already sent references against these ‘deserters’.
Informing that Imran Khan would address party’s rally in Multan on May 29, he asked the workers to start making arrangements for the event from now.
Earlier, he was warmly welcomed by the party workers at Daulat Gate Chowk.
