OKARA-Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has waged a war against corruption and the corrupt elements in the county.

It was conveyed by local PTI leader Ch Abdus Sattar Wahlah during a media talk here the other day.

"The growing PTI's popularity among the masses is a testimony to a democratic and corruption-less Pakistan in near future," he maintained. He criticised Sharif brothers saying they had won the title of 'great liars' with their false slogans and promises they made with people. He said that the Sharifs had always befooled the entire nation in the name of democracy.

"Every tenure of the PML-N government is replete with corruption, nepotism and huge funds embezzlement," he said, adding that the PML-N government performed nothing good for the masses except adding to their woes.

He said that the middle class was running short of money while the lower class was teetering on the brink of starvation due to bad economic policies of the government.

"They even lack basic facilities of life" he regretted, claiming that they would reject the PML-N in the next general election and would honour the PTI with their confidence.
