In his felicitation message to the nation, Imran Khan termed year 2013 as “year of change” and urged the people to vote for a change in year 2013 to get rid of the corrupt, inept and untruthful rulers who were the reason for the miseries they had been facing since past five years.
Khan said that it was a blessing that the general elections were also coming closer after the country saw worst rule for five long years.
“With the advent of the new year, I wish and pray that my people take bold decisions and vote out those rulers who had done nothing for their cause in past five years. Year 2012 proved to be very tragic for the country. We saw that inflation, destruction and price-hike touched new highs. During this year, the government itself accepted that Rs 5000 billion are being looted from my countrymen every year. Therefore, a change is inevitable and we have to get rid of the corrupt lot ruling the country for the past three decades,” said Imran Khan.
“It is time right for the people of Pakistan to choose honest and able leaders who could feel and share their suffering and concerns. It is unbelievable for me to note that neither the motorists are able to get the CNG nor they are being provided petrol on fuel stations even in the federal capital. If this is situation in capital, one can easily understand the plight of the people of the rural areas. Despite waiting in long queues for hours and hours, the people are being given less than two liters of petrol which is the costly source of energy for their vehicles. Such scenes never have been witnessed in Pakistan,” he added.
“Whether it was Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan or Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, incompetence and corruption was a hallmark and the PPP and its allied parties in the center and the PML-N and a coterie of turncoats from PML-Q unleashed worst sort of rule in Punjab. The people of KP had to face terrorism and corruption in KP while the situation went to a state in Balochistan that even the Supreme Court termed the Balochistan government unconstitutional and illegal. Bloodshed, loot and plunder have been only thing the people saw besides skyrocketing pricing and unemployment,” he said.
He said that the people would have to decide for good of their future generations and the days of the inept and corrupt politicians were numbered.
