Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday called for social boycott of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over corruption.
“I call professionals, laborers and all to come out and give a strong message to all these failed institutions. Whereever you are, whatever you do, stand up against corruption, raise the slogan of go nawaz go,” Khan said while addressing a mammoth gathering in Islamabad.
“I appeal to the nation to stand up against corruption and join me in our protests against Nawaz Sharif,” he said. “I pray to Allah Almighty to turn Pakistan into a great nation.”
He announced that he would hold public meetings in Nowshehra, Sialkot and Karachi.
“When I was young, this county was on road to become a really great one. We had a rank, a status. When Ayub Khan went to America, he was greeted at the airport by the US President,” he said.
“I pray that we become a nation that a green passport holder doesn’t face segregation in queues. I pray to Allah to make this nation into the great one that it was on road to becoming.”
“I visited the US a few years back, I, who is a well known Pakistani abroad, was stopped for 6 hours on the airport. On my second trip, I was stopped for four years. When this happens to a well-known Pakistani, I can understannd what a common Pakistani will have to face.”
