Imran criticizes Sharifs for ignoring power shortage

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said that his party will introduce the local bodies system after coming into power.


Addressing a public gathering Pakpattan, the PTI chairman criticized Metro Bus service launched at the cost of billions of rupees and termed it a waste of public money.


He also said that load shedding should have been ended with that money instead of launching the bus service.


Khan promised better health and education system after coming in the power.


He again challanged PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif for an open debate on TV, adding that he would ask him what would he do in the sixth term as he was failed in his five terms already.


Imran Khan said that farmers’ problems would be resolved on priority basis in the PTI’s government.


“I know why Nawaz Sharif is in a state of fear to face me on a live TV debate. He knows I will strike his stumps on the very first ball,” Imran said, drawing cheers from his supporters in the crowd.

He also claimed that excessive load shedding in Punjab was due to the mismanagement of Shahbaz Sharif’s government and not that of center. Imran also alleged that the PML-N government in Punjab has failed to streamline the health and education system of the province.

PTI is engaged in bitter politicking with PML-N in recent days.

PML-N leaders are accusing Imran Khan of making false promises and running away from contesting one on one with Nawaz Sharif in Lahore’s NA-120 constituency.

Analysts believe that the two parties are trying to woo voters in Punjab by ridiculing each other in a bid to secure maximum seats as the province has 148 constituencies of National Assembly out of the total of 272, and the party who gains maximum seat in Punjab has a greater chance of making the government in center after May 11 elections.
