Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf, Imran Khan, announced in a big election rally in Swat on Sunday that if voted to power, he will restore peace in Swat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the tribal regions.


Khan said that people of Swat rendered sacrifices but peace could not be fully established.


“There will be peace in KPK and FATA if PTI comes to power,” he told an enthusiastic crowd at Grassy Ground.


He said he had urged the government not to join the US-led war. “But in return I was called Taliban Khan,” he said.


“I used to say there is no military solution and called for a political solution. Now those who called me terrorist are calling for peace talks,” Khan said.


“But they can’t do that. InshaAllaah I will show you how peace could be restored through involving tribesman. Tribesmen fought for Pakistan in 1948, and 1965 and rendered sacrifices. I will tell them to hold talks with militants in their areas. We have a complete program for this purpose”.


Imran Khan said that people were worried that tickets were not being awarded on merit. “One thing that could lead the defeat of the PTI would be awarding party tickets to wrong people. We will give tickets on merit, ” he assured the crowd.


He said the PTI was the first democratic party in the country.


“There are no other democratic political parties in Pakistan, other parties belong to family dynasties. Members will elect PTI leaders. Youth will be encouraged and new leadership will be introduced. 25 percent tickets will be awarded to candidates under the age of 35 years,” Imran Khan said.


“We won’t be defeated if tickets are awarded on merit.


Commenting on the education system, Khan said a uniform curriculum would be set up for rich and poor in the country and Rs 2,500 billion would be spent on the education sector.


“I set up Namal university. It was the first institution set up in a village where 90 percent students are given a free education and awarded a Bradford University degree.


“I know how to improve the health system as I set up the best hospital in the country. Now a cancer hospital is also being built in Peshawar.”


Khan said that he would introduce pre-1974 justice system in Swat.


Imran Khan said that he fulfilled all the dreams he saw and now he had also dreamed that the PTI had swept the election.
