CHAKWAL: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan held a rally in Chakwal on Thursday, where he reiterated his party’s message that “change will come” in the next election.

Addressing a gathering of thousands, the PTI chief said that a “tsunami” has arrived which will “reach Karachi, where the future of Pakistan will be decided.” He was referring to the rise in corruption, inflation and violation of human rights in Pakistan.

Khan said old-fashioned politics based on corruption cannot change the fate of a country, and that the youth of Pakistan will be instrumental in bringing about a change.

“Minor office holders have been put behind bars while big fish are protected by the NRO,” he said.

He also said that people will have to fight for their rights to secure a brighter future.

“It is now time to win the Pakistan “World Cup”, said Khan, implying that the country should emerge as a successful nation in the international arena.

Khan also hit out at the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), saying that Shahbaz Sharif should not spend government funds on rallies and should instead use the money to provide water to the people of Chakwal who are facing a shortage.

PTI is planning a rally in Karachi on December 25 near the Mazar-e-Quaid. The party’s goal is to bring out a whopping 200,000 people. Party officials earlier told The Express Tribune that the December 25 rally’s theme will be ‘National Unity’ as Khan wants everyone to participate, above ethnic divides.
