Donate money for charity and welfare instead of wasting it on wedding ceremonies: Imran
10 January, 2015
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan urged people on Friday 9,January,2015 to donate money for charity and welfare works instead of wasting it on wedding ceremonies.
Talking to journalists after his valima reception held for seminary students, he thanked all those who had congratulated him on his marriage and asked the well-wishers desiring to send him gifts to donate the money to the Shaukat Khanum Hospital project in Peshawar so that it could be completed this year and patients from Fata and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were treated there.
The PTI chief said that everyday millions of people remained deprived of a square meal and money was unfortunately wasted on unnecessary functions. Mr Khan said he wanted to delay his wedding after the Peshawar school attack but had to do it earlier because of the media hype.
In reply to a question, he said his party’s demand for a judicial commission to investigate the alleged poll rigging was only for strengthening democracy in the country.
