MIANWALI - Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid said on Sunday that PTI Chairman Imran Khan wanted to come to power through street agitation, but now time had changed and nobody could usurp power through undemocratic means.

Talking to the media here,he questioned as to what change Imran had brought in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where his party had been in power for the last 14 months.

He said both the PML-N and Pakistan Tehreek-a-Insaaf (PTI) would be held accountable by voters in next general elections. Therefore, Imran should mend his ways and serve the masses, he added.

Pervaiz Rashid said the PTI chief had failed to attract voters in the previous election through doing politics of allegations and in future too, he would not be able to get votes on mere leveling accusations.

He said terrorism and energy crisis had damaged the country's economy badly. However due to the corrective steps taken by the government, he added, it had now shown signs of improvement.

He said that the value of rupee had increased against the US dollar. With the fall in dollar value, prices of several items also came down as the purchases from international market were done through dollar, he said.

To a question, he said Indian aggression would be highlighted at international fora.

There would be no compromise on Pakistan's sovereignty, he said and ,added, that all types of terrorism would be countered. Every inch of the country's land would be defended, and life and property of all the citizens would be protected, he vowed.

Pervaiz Rashid said five permanent members of the United Nations

Security Council would be approached to convey "our viewpoint on Indian violations of ceasefire".

Moreover, he said, a UN observers team was taken to the areas affected by the Inidan shelling so that they could have an eye-witness account of the destruction in the area.
