KARACHI: Chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has stressed the need of grooming and educating the youth to assume the country’s leadership while keeping the traditional values of the society intact.
He criticised the rulers “for toeing the American line” by trying to impose a ‘secular education system’ in the country. The new education system, according to him, would prepare an army of Pakistanis who would be American in their thought and serve their masters without giving a second thought to the welfare of the country.
KARACHI: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan has advised the opposition not to move to the Supreme Court against the proposed re-election of President General Pervez Musharraf by the incumbent assemblies as, the apex court’s verdict will be in favour of the government.
“The opposition parties have no other option but to go to the masses against unconstitutional (proposed) re-election of General Musharraf by the sitting assemblies. If they (opposition parties) commit this mistake, they will be in total loss in line with the past”, Khan contended while addressing “meet the press” programme at the Karachi Press Club on Wednesday.
The cricketer-turned politician said he did not expect any relief from the apex court if the opposition parties took the issue of the re-election of an uniformed president there. ” Unfortunately, the judiciary is not independent. There are some no-go areas for the Supreme Court, and it cannot operate in these areas”, he asserted.
PTI Sindh president Zubair Khan has demanded that citizens should be allowed to keep arms in order to protect themselves from dacoits and bandits. The Police have totally failed to provide security to citizens. Rate of street crimes is on the rise despite government claims. People are living under desperate fright as their lucrative and lives are unsafe. Dacoity in daytime hours is a clear manifest that the provincial administration has no control over crimes and criminals.

Flanked by SCBA office bearers, the SCBA secretary Zulfiqar Ali Bokhari told a press conference that present assemblies having a five-year tenure were not entitled to elect a president for two terms or 10 years. “What will be next assemblies do if the present assemblies cast vote twice?” he asked.
RAHIM YAR KHAN Jan 22 (APP): Tehreek-e-Insaf Pakistan will fully participate in the next general elections, whether or not PML-N and PPP chiefs return to the country to take part in the polls.
This was stated by Tehreek Chief Imran Khan while addressing a press conference here Monday. Other senior party leaders were also present.
He said although he was very much involved in pre-poll arrangements, these activities will not hinder his commitment to social welfare, where he is fully active and the work continues as usual.
“Shaukat Khanum Hospital, with an annual expenditure of Rs 700 million, has been providing free treatment to needy and deserving cancer patients,” he said.
A similar hospital will soon be established in Karachi, while a technical college has been planned to set up in Mianwali later this year, he added.
The Tehreek chief said that his dedication to welfare work will not be affected by his political and patriotic aspirations.
