Imran Khan reaches out to supporters in Nagar

NAGAR: Chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, Thursday addressed a public gathering in Nagar area of Gilgit-Baltistan, urging his supporters to vote for PTI in June 8 Legislative Assembly elections.
The PTI Chairman, as usual, criticized Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his ruling clique, and at the same time took credit for empowering masses in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa through May 30 local government elections that were marred by violence and mismanagement.
“Imran Khan cannot help you, but you have to help yourself. This will happen if you make sure power is devolved. These people will never really empower you.
We want to change system like we have done in KPK where we have taken power down to village level,” Khan said while addressing a PTI rally in Nagar, four days before elections of Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly.
“Today the West is far ahead because they empower local people. You have to do this for yourself… The world has gone ahead and this beautiful region is left behind. We want to change that,” he said.
He made promises to the people of Nagar. “I want to tell the youth that we will spend money on education and sports facilities.”He then turned to PM Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari.
“These people have driven debt levels high and then implement taxes on the ordinary man to pay them back. These status quo rulers were nothing before they came into power, today they own billions.”
He said seven years ago every Pakistani had about Rs.35,000 debt on each person but today it stands at over Rs.100,000 per person.
“Nawaz Sharif is a businessman and politics is a business for him. But your vote is your power. Don’t sell your conscience,” he urged his supporters.
