LAHORE:  Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan asked his political rivals to announce date of next elections while also inviting them to have meeting with party leaders. Speaking to parliamentary party, Imran lamented rising unemployment rate while asserting that stability would come with arrival of new administration. He reiterated that Pakistan was on verge of default.

He slammed Minister Ishaq Dar for saying he would deal with Moody’s because he had since remained silent on subject. He took swipe at coalition government, accusing it of lacking plan. Imran raised his voice in support of farmers’ community, saying, “In our time, farmers had finally received benefits. But now that diesel prices have skyrocketed, farmers are worried.” Speaking on dissolution of assembly, Khan stated that PTI leadership made this choice for good of nation. He questioned whether current administration wanted elections to be held in only 66 percent of seats, which are in Punjab and KP.

He asserted that government intended to have him disqualified or imprison him. Imran berated rulers, claiming that they had stolen Rs 1,100 billion through NAB amendment. PTI Chairman said federal government was required to give Punjab government Rs 176 billion, but it has not done so. He claimed that centre has not given money to governments of Balochistan or KP.

Earlier, PTI Chairman Imran Khan has directed his party leaders and social media team to stop criticising establishment in major shift in his policy he had been pursuing since his ouster as prime minister in April last.
