Imran announces anti-corruption movement in Sindh, rally in Lahore


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, addressing a large crowd at Islamabad’s F9 park, announced the start of an anti-corruption movement in Sindh from April 26, and a rally in Lahore on May 1.

“Starting April 26, we will launch an anti-corruption movement in Sindh,” announced Imran.

The PTI chairman also announced a rally in Lahore, scheduled for May 1.

“Next Sunday, we will hold a rally in Lahore, where I will announce our future course of action.”

Briefly touching upon the much-hyped Raiwind march announced earlier, the PTI chairman said it would happen after the rally in Lahore, not giving a specific date.

Referring to the recently announced inquiry commission to probe Panama Papers, Imran stated that if the terms of reference of the commission are not made specific, and an international forensic firm is not called for investigation, they will again come out on the streets in agitation.

“Democracy will be strengthened when there will be free and fair elections, and will not weaken when we call for probes into corruption,” said Imran referring to the premier’s earlier televised address.

He also questioned the prime minister’s absence from parliament, while giving the example of British Prime Minister David Cameron, who attended parliament and answered questions related to his involvement in offshore investments.

The chairman of PTI also expressed his sorrow at the loss of Sardar Soran Singh, a special assistant to chief minister KP on minorities’ affairs and a PTI MPA.

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of Sardar Sooran Singh, he was very passionate and was a staunch patriot,” said Imran.

Imran vowed on the occasion to give minorities equal rights and standing with in the Pakistani society.

He also asked the youth of the nation to respect women, and to protect and uphold their rights.

On the occasion of PTI’s foundation day, Imran also payed tribute to the leaders who “stayed with PTI through thick and thin.”
