PTI unveils policy for the less privileged
19 March, 2013
ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Monday unveiled his party's policy for people with disabilities, expressing determination that after coming into power, the PTI would ensure "empowerment of the disabled" vowing that their representation in mainstream would be ensured.
Addressing the convention organised here by Insaf Student Federation (ISF) and the launching ceremony of PTI's policy for Persons with Disabilities (PWD's), Imran Khan criticised the government for failing to empower disabled people in the country.
Imran Khan said after coming into power, the PTI would ensure adequate budgetary allocations for the PWD at the provincial and national levels.
Criticising the rulers of the country, PTI chief said that the Presidency and the Punjab government have been extending their all out efforts to buy the loyalties of the politicians.
He said that the PTI's tsunami would reach Minar-e-Pakistan on March 23
by travelling through Metro Buses.
Imran Khan said that the Punjab Chief Minister was afraid of PTI's rising support and popularity among the masses and the proposed public gathering of PTI at Minar-e-Pakistan had made him restless.
"Punjab Chief Minister is not ready to dissolve the Punjab Assembly as he wants to use his own police and Patwari's to thwart the PTI's public gathering to be held in Lahore," said Khan.
The PTI Chief argued that Chief Minister Punjab cannot beat the passion of the youth, adding that Shahbaz Sharif might be unaware that ideology and passion cannot be bought by dolling out laptops to the young students.
He said that the taxpayers' money was being misused to buy the loyalty of politicians, adding that the Punjab government had spent 70 billion rupees on Metro Bus Service.
"After coming into power, we will hold all the corrupt leaders accountable as these rulers have spent all the public funds just to cling to power and they have no concern for the plight of masses," said the PTI chairman.
He appealed to the public not to vote for those politicians who have kept their assets and their family members in foreign countries.
Imran Khan was of the view that PTI has introduced real democracy in the country by holding the intra party elections, adding that the parties that avoided the party elections could not exist in the near future.
He said that Shahbaz Sharif has made it convenient for PTI to participate in public gathering of 23rd march by launching Metro Bus Service as now they could easily reach Minar-e-Pakistan.
He alleged that there was an attempt to sabotage the PTI's tsunami on March 23 and a lot of money had also been spent on the media for this purpose.
