FAISALABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman, Imran Khan Wednesday reiterated that Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf was not elected to serve the people but President Asif Ali Zardari.
PTI staged a rally against price hike, corruption and loadshedding which marched from District Council to Ghantaghar Chowk. Led by Imran Khan, the rally was attended in large numbers among others by Javed Hashmi, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and other leaders.
Addressing the rally, Imran Khan lamented that prices soared skyward during the rule of the current regime while large factories and manufacturing units witnessed closure due to prolonged loadshedding, rendering hundreds of thousands of labourers jobless.
He said the government could not be allowed any more time and called upon the traders, laboureres and youth to prepare for a long march towards Islamabad.
Lashing out at Pakistan Muslim League-N President Nawaz Sharif, he accused the former of staging a sham fight with the government. "Tell me what steps did you take in four years for addressing the power crisis issue?" he asked Nawaz Sharif.
He also asked the PML-N leader to provide details as to how much electricity dues stood outstanding against the latter's textile mills.
