Imran asks Centre to restore peace in Malakand

PTI chief warns govt against delaying elections

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has warned the “imported government and its backers” to hold early and transparent elections, warning that the situation would get out of control if polls were delayed any further.

“If you stop this ‘peaceful revolution’, the game [situation] would get out of everyone’s hand. Let the change come through vote,” he said while addressing his party’s power show in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Charsadda district on Saturday.

“No matter what you do you cannot win this match. You have already lost this match… economy is sinking fast and the world is not willing to give them [government] financial aid for flood victims.”

The PTI chairman said there is still time to steer the country out of the quagmire by holding free and fair elections, adding that “the time is not far when he will give the call to the nation to achieve real freedom”.

Quoting IMF and World Bank reports, Imran said that “Pakistan is going to become Sri Lanka”. “Those responsible for toppling my government will not be forgiven,” he added.

“Sindh is the worst-hit province from floods but because of Zardari, the international community is not ready to help,” said the former premier.

Speaking about the rise in terrorist attacks, Imran urged the federal government to fulfil its duty and restore law and order in Malakand district of the province.
