CHITRAL: Pak­istan Tehreek-iIn­saf (PTI) chair­man Im­ran Khan on Thurs­day has said that “the days of sta­tus quo and cor­rupt mafia are gone”, and re­it­er­ated his party’s de­mand for early elec­tions while terming them ben­e­fi­cial for the pub­lic.

Ad­dress­ing me­dia and a pub­lic meet­ing in Chitral, he said that though early elec­tions are an un­demo­cratic process but it can be a so­lu­tion if the man­date turns sus­pi­cious.

“There is no such thing as gov­ern­ment in the coun­try. It will be more ben­e­fi­cial for the pub­lic if elec­tions are held sooner.

The money that should be spent on pub­lic is used in cor­rup­tion. Na­tion will not ac­cept a third NRO,” he said.

While un­leash­ing ver­bal on­slaught against PML-N, Khan main­tained, “Prime Min­is­ter went to Eng­land to sort out the mat­ter of his per­sonal air­line; Pun­jab Chief Min­is­ter went to Lon­don to meet PM whereas Fi­nance Min­is­ter is ly­ing on hos­pi­tal’s bed. No one is con­cerned or wor­ried about the coun­try.”

Com­ment­ing on the al­liance of Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment (MQM) and the Pak Sarza­meen Party (PSP), Khan as­serted that he sees no con­spir- acy in the union.

PTI chief lashed out at for­mer NAB chair­man and said that later saved Nawaz Sharif and Zradari’s cor­rup­tion there­fore; he should be pun­ished and made an ex­am­ple.

Im­ran Khan no­ti­fied that In­dia is car­ry­ing out ter­ror­ism in Pak­istan through Afghanistan. “The na­tion has to stand with the army against ter­ror­ism,” he said.

Talk­ing about the smog sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try, Khan said that en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion is a se­ri­ous prob­lem which is hav­ing ad­verse af­fects on health and crops.
