The PMLN leader criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan for hike in prices, unemployment,  poverty, and what he called his government's failure to overcome dengue .

"Today people are dying  of dengue and government has deprived people of medicine," he said.

He said 50,000 people have been affected by dengue this year. "People have lost their lives to dengue. And yet  Imran Khan used to call us Dengue Brothers".

He said people used to get free medicine during Nawaz Sharif government, adding that people  have realised that old Pakistan was better than Naya Pakistan.

Calling Azadi March the first phase of the movement, he said the opposition would now take forward its campaign.

"We will put the country on the right track within six months after forming a government in collaboration with our allies," he said.
