Imran announces ‘Pakistan Bachao Aur Hukoomat Hatao Tehreek’
Karachi: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has announced the ‘Pakistan Bachao Aur Hukoomat Hatao Tehreek’ (Save Pakistan and Remove the Government Movement) and expressed no confidence in the resolution passed in a joint session against drone attacks.

He was addressing a gathering on the second and concluding day of the sit-in on Sunday on the Native Jetty Bridge to block Nato supplies and drone attacks.

Thousands of people joined the two-day protest.

The movement, he said, will start from Lahore and appealed to all like-minded political parties to join hands with the PTI to get rid of the corrupt rulers.

In the second phase, Khan said, we would protest in Islamabad and besiege the Parliament House. He said the parliament had failed to get its resolution against drone attacks implemented as on the very next day of passing of the resolution, drone strikes killed several innocent people in the trial area.

He condemned the hypocratical attitude of the government, saying on the one hand it is adopting a resolution against drones while on the other it has ‘fixed its match’ with the United States.

The prominent political leaders who attended the sit-in included Jamaat-e-Islami leaders Mohammad Hussain Mehanti, Dr Meraj-ul-Huda Siddqui, Sunni Tehreek Chief Sarwat Ejaz Qadri, Anwer Gujjar and the Sindh National Front was represented by Mumtaz Ali Bhutto who read out his message conveying that Sindhis are with Imran Khan as they see him as only saviour who could steer deprived Sindhis out of the present turmoil. Qamar Bhatti of Sindh Taraqqi Pasand Party also shared similar sentiments that Sindhis are fed up of the corrupt rulers and wanted to get rid of the present government for which he supported Imran Khan and vowed to continue supporting him.

Imran Khan said that the rulers are corrupt therefore they would avoid accountability against any state institutions and officials. He said that his party would emerge victorious in the next general elections as people are tired of hypocrite and dishonest rulers. He said that the success of todayís congregation has proved that masses wanted a revolution and not only change of faces to run the country.

ìToday country is facing severe crisisî he said and asked the gathering that under these circumstances which option is opened to them. The crowd present on the occasion pointed fingers on Khan who they see as the savior of the country.

Reacting on Obamaís recent interview that the US would again act unilaterally inside Pakistan if another militant was found in the country, he said which law on earth allows any one to violate sovereign territory and integrity of other country.

He said the sit-in had heralded a new era which has proved that people wanted revolution and they would support PTI, which is the only ray of hope in darkness. The protest has sent a message to the US that people of Pakistan are not coward and would retaliate if the territorial boundaries of the country were violated.

He said that drone attacks were carried out with the assistance of three- president, prime minister and Army who ëfixed matchí with the United States. He said the protest would convey to the US that ìwe will not be cowed down by drone attacksî.

Khan said that if his party were came into power it would finish the terrorists and assimilate the tribal people into the mainstream. He said it was the worst time for the country and the nation had been made subservient to the Americans. The killing of nine people in Quetta, including a pregnant woman, at the hands of our military has sent a wave of anger amongst the people. He said the rulers and military were continuously telling lie that they were terrorists.

The May 2 incidents had brought shame outside Pakistan and disgrace to oversees Pakistanis who are the assets of the country as they transact large amount of foreign reserves. For the sake of their own vested interests they made nation subservient to the US.

Khan also mustered the support of some of the right-wing parties, including the Sunni Tehrik and Jamiat-i-Ulema Islam, and the Sindh National Front and Jamat-e-Islami. They were carrying PTIís flags and photographs of Aafia Siddiqui and chanting anti-America slogans on the occasion.
