HAFIZABAD -  PTI chairman Imran Khan has appealed to the masses to get prepared for fighting against the corrupt politicians and stopping them from coming to power so as to bring about real change in the country.

Addressing a gathering in the Municipal Stadium Friday night, he said that corruption was creating hurdles in resolving most of the problems being confronted by the nation. The big problems of Pakistan were unemployment, poverty and dearness.

He said that disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif had laundered and transferred more than Rs300 billion to other countries while the common man had been taxed unduly. He maintained that ideology of Nawaz Sharif and his cronies was corruption. He said that PTI would bring about an era of exploitation-free society in which all the problems particularly hunger, unemployment, poverty and corruption would be eliminated and justice would be provided equally. Referring to repeated question of Nawaz Sharif why he was ousted, Imran Khan said that he and his family had plundered, laundered and transferred the national wealth abroad for which offence he was ousted. Nawaz Sharif had hoodwinked the people in the past but the masses were well aware and would not be deceived now.

He termed Jang Group chief Mir Shakeelur Rehman godfather of media and criticised him for allegedly supporting disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif to achieve his vested interests.

He appreciated ex-MNA Ch Mehdi Hassan, Who was disqualified in a fake degree case, and his son Ch. Shaukat Ali Bhatti for arranging the big gathering and for their role in the PTI sit-in in Islamabad.

Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad termed Nawaz Sharif the biggest looter and dacoit in the country. He added that the masses had rejected him for life. He said that he was supporting Imran Khan because he would make Pakistan the graveyard of corrupt politicians.

Earlier, Ch Mehdi Hassan and other PTI office-bearers gave rousing welcome to Imran Khan who was accompanied by other PTI leaders Shafqat Mehmood, Aleem Khan and Sh Rashid.
