Chaudhary Sarwar said the PML-N and PPP’s politics was expiring due to its corruption and looting spree. He said the nation would wipe out these two political parties in the next elections. He said the PTI was fully preparing for the upcoming local body elections and would not allow the rulers to delay the elections on any pretext. He regretted that corruption had become order of the day everywhere in the public institutions including PIA, Wapda, Sui-gas, police, income tax and Railways.
He said the corruption of billions of rupees in these institutions was creating innumerable problems for the masses.

He also regretted that the incumbent rulers’ accountability was being ignored due to political compromises.
Chaudhary Sarwar stressed that corruption and wrongdoings needed to be wiped out to make Pakistan a welfare state, which could not be done without punishing the corrupt. He stressed that laws should also be framed to stop corrupt politicians entering the politics.
