SHIKARPUR: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday called for Pakistan Rangers to take action against corruption in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) if his party’s provincial government was unable to do the same.
In an address to party workers in Shikarpur during a two-day visit to Sindh, Imran called on Rangers to take action against all corrupt officials in Sindh who were still at large.
The PTI chief also said on the occasion that the biggest problem facing Sindh was corruption, and the people of the province wanted to see real change in the current system.
“Corruption destroys a society, and we would fight for the rights of the people of Sindh,” stated Imran.
The PTI chief claimed that funds for provincial development in Sindh had gone into the pockets of “those in power.”
Imran Khan, who is on a two-day Sindh visit, aims to consolidate his support base in the province.
Earlier last week, Imran Khan had announced to hold a sit-in in front of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in Islamabad if its members do not tender their resignations by October 4.
In August, Imran Khan had warned all members of the ECP to transparently answer the questions he raised or he will take to the streets once again.
He had criticised the reply he had earlier received from the body over a letter he had sent questioning its shortcomings in light of the Judicial Commission report, Khan said it was his right to pose questions not only as a Pakistani but also as the chairman of a major political party.
While addressing a press conference, Imran Khan had said that the ECP provincial officials have no legal or moral standing left and they should immediately resign.
He had also stated that the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) chairman should also tender his resignation as he was part of covering-up the rigging that took place in the general elections of 2013.
Imran, earlier in July had accepted the judicial commission’s report, which was constituted to probe alleged rigging during the general elections of 2013.
