As Punjab food minister, District Council chairman and district nazim of Rahim Yar Khan, Rafiq Haider  completed development projects worth billions of rupees in different areas from Kot Sabzal to Chani Goth. He strived for elimination of Qabza mafia, corruption and plundering. He never took revenge on his opponents. He is the person the people need,” said Mr Fazli addressing a corner meeting under the political campaign of the NA candidate in Christian Colony.

The candidate noted that the people of Sadiqabad were completely deprived of a drop of water and the sewerage system was also dilapidated and poor as sewer was witnessed accumulated in the streets and roads because of clogged drains.  “The PPP and the PML-N have failed to resolve the people’s problems therefore the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf would get thumping victory in the forthcoming general elections under the leadership of Imran Khan,” said Rafiq Haider Leghari, the PTI candidate for constituency NA-197.

He said, “Under the leadership of Imran Khan, all the national problems would be resolved. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and PPP-led alliance are afraid of the increasing popularity of the PTI but the tsumani would washed away corruption, plundering and the commission mafia. Insha’Allah, the PTI will bring forward honest leadership.” “People’s revolution has become inevitable. Now, no political party could hoodwink the Pakistani nation. The PTI has started preparations for the forthcoming general elections,” he said.
