Vice Chair­man PTI Shah Mah­mood Qureshi has said that cor­rup­tion and nepo­tism have badly dam­aged the coun­try and have brought it at the verge of dis­as­ter.

Ad­dress­ing dif­fer­ent party meet­ings here in Gul­berg and other ar­eas, he deeply re­gret­ted Pak­istan's 132nd po­si­tion in the in­ter­na­tional in­dex as quite ter­ri­ble which, was way be­low even Bangladesh and other coun­tries who at­tained got free­dom much later than Pak­istan.

"Present rulers have no in­ter­est in the bet­ter­ment of the com­mon man, who were be­com­ing poorer while power hold­ers were busy plan­ning their next po­lit­i­cal gim­mick", he stated, adding that due to such sce­nario, PTI had de­cided to put its all ef­forts to give re­al­ity to the slo­gan of change on the ba­sis of "now or never."

Ad­mit­ting that there were cer­tain hur­dles on the way to or­ga­nize PTI at na­tional level, he said that hur­dles were part and par­cel of any po­lit­i­cal party, while PTI lead­er­ship was try­ing its level best to set­tle the is­sues am­i­ca­bly.

Be­rat­ing po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents for us­ing their 70 per cent re­sources on the me­dia cam­paign to de­fame PTI, with daily some new con­cocted scam, he ex­horted work­ers to muster up their en­er­gies and work for party with full zeal.
