TOBA TEK SINGH - Hundreds of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf(PTI) activists and local leaders accorded a warmly welcome to the party central leader Javed Hashmi when he passed through Pirmahal, Rajana, Toba and Gojra en route to Faisalabad here on Sunday.
Everywhere they had set up reception camps but Hashmi did not address anywhere except at railway level-crossing chowk where he spoke for few minutes. He said that the PTI was not struggling for change of faces and in fact its goal was to bring about a revolution in the country. He added that the PTI tsunami was unstoppable and majority of the people were now completely willing to support Imran Khan. Those who welcomed Hashmi at Pirmahal included former federal information minister Khalid Kharal’s son Haider Ali Kharal, Ch Muhammad Sarwar, Siddiq Piyara, at Rajana by former MPA Javed Akram, at Toba former district nazim Ch M Ashfaq, PTI district chief Dr Waheed Akbar, District Secretary Ameer Butt, Ijaz Insari, Ch Tanveer Ahmad, Advocate Mian Abdul Basit, Moulvi Abdullah and minority wing president Kamran Pervaiz.
PTI leader Ghiasuddin Janbaz could not reach the reception camp due to illness. Meanwhile, pickpockets deprived dozens of people of their valuables during Hashmi’s reception and according to an estimate cash and valuables worth more than Rs200,000 were taken away from the pockets of various people.
Earlier, talking to the media men in Multan the PTI stalwart said that the US would fail in its intensions regarding Balochistan. Hashmi said that pressure would mount on Pakistan when the rulers are weak, adding that rulers with clean and spotless past would withstand and face the pressure.
He said that assemblies were bogus because parliamentarians had failed to solve even a single problem of the masses over the last four years. He said that the nation is united and it’s necessary to awake the sleepy rulers.
