Lahore: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf Imran Khan has invited all the people of Pakistan to join him for the peace march to Waziristan against the drone attacks on October 7, 2012. He said that this march is not a circus of so called lions but it takes the real courage to lead such a march to Waziristan. Drone attacks are against the human rights but the ruling elite are just silent spectators. We will be guests of our on tribal people. Government is not giving visas to the foreign media and human rights organizations but if the government is against the drone attacks then it must give visas without any delay. Pakistan is spending 90 billion every month on the war against terrorism.
We welcome the newcomers in the party. Party elections are a difficult task but we are committed to do that with ten million members already on board, he said. While addressing a press conference on Tuesday on the joining of former PML MNA Naeem Hussain Chatha and his son former MPA Abid Hussain Chatha along with his companions, other party leaders Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Shafqat mahmood, Jahangir Tareen, Ahsan Rasheed, Inaam ullah Niazi, Naeem ul Haq, Mian Mahmood ur Rasheed, Azam Swati, Hussain Jahaania Gardezi, Mian Khalid, S A Hameed, Sajaad Hussain Randhawa, Ejaaz Sohal, Asif Virk, Shah Nawaz Saraa and Rai Aziz were also present on the occasion.
PTI is a democratic party not a dynastic party, which is also going to conduct elections within the party to give the members of the party the right to choose their leadership, said Imran Khan. He said that Pakistan has suffered the most in the war against terrorism and as a result extremist and terrorism are increasing instead of decreasing also costing precious lives of our soldiers.
Answering to a question he said that if the government and parliament and all other in the country are against the drone attacks then why would anyone oppose the peace march? He said that no party in Pakistan could dare to hold a public meeting in Quetta or go to Waziristan; it is only the PTI, taking bold decisions. He said that PTI will clean sweep in the upcoming elections and will implement its policies following the national sentiment. He said that PPP and PML-N have an understanding. Both have promoted corruption and bad governance, and failed to address the issues of a common man.
Mr. Naeem Hussain Chattha, a law graduate who retired as a Senator in March 2012 highlighted the challenges faced by the country and said that PTI had unveiled a convincing agenda to cure the country from the ills that threatened its progress in all facets of life. Mr. Naeem Chattha has served as Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Women Affairs (1991-93) and was twice elected as MNA in 1990 and 1997. He was also elected MPA in 1985 and served as Chairman District Council, Sheikhupura from 1983 to 1987.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Abid Hussain Chattha, a foreign educated corporate lawyer by profession who remained MPA and Special Assistant to Chief Minister Punjab in the last PML-Q regime, reposed confidence on the inspiring leadership of Mr. Imran Khan and stated that he was fully on board with the PTI ideology seeking to give Pakistan a new meaning and direction in line with the ideals of the founding fathers.
