Vehari: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan warned that his party would hit the streets again, if Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) failed to come up with a response regarding his 40 questions.

“If our questions remain unanswered about why this commission is still in place, we will hit the streets again,” Khan said while speaking at a Kisan Convention in Vehari. “We are strongly taking up the case of the Election Commission’s incompetence as was declared by the Judicial Commission.”

“God has blessed Pakistan with fertile land and yet conditions of farmers are deteriorating day by day,” the PTI chief said. “The income of farmers is reducing day by day. Every year floods caused by rains wash away millions of acres of crops. He said if flood water is saved, then the farmers will gain billions,” he said.

He called upon the farming community to vote for those who make policies, to make the lives of farmers better and increase their earnings. “We are here to educate you that do not waste your vote. Stop giving votes on basis of lineage/ family. Today we are announcing that we will be uniting farmers across Pakistan. We will stand with them. If we want economic growth in the country, we will have to help our farmers first.”

Khan said there was so much potential in Pakistan and “if we lift our poor and farmers, we can turn the country around. We can use flood waters in water reservoirs; we as a nation have to decide how to use water better.”

Global warming is rapidly taking place; we have to decide as a nation how to use water from melting glaciers, he warned.

The PTI chief said that India and China had invested heavily on their respective farmers, to combat poverty and improve economy. PTI chief announced PTI will form Cotton Institute for welfare of farmers, as first step after coming into power. He said this institute will be run by the representatives of the farmers and not the government.

Imran Khan said that they will unite all farmers in the country and PTI will stand in solidarity with farmers. He urged the participants to vote for those that help farmers and not to ‘waste’ their votes.
