PTI’s rally marches through Karachi, Imran addresses gathering in Lyari

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday, led by party chairman Imran Khan, thronged the city with their massive rally that marched through the different areas of the metropolis as part of the election campaign ahead of the upcoming local government polls.

Imran also addressed a public gathering at Lyari’s famous Kakri ground in the evening. Speaking to the party activists and supporters, Imran said “I have has come to make a new Karachi and new Lyrai”.

“The people were divided on political and ethnic grounds by political forces for their own benefit,” Imran maintained.

The PTI chairman said that he has witnessed the downfall of Karachi at the hands of police and corrupt political parties.

He claimed that Karachi’s investment got shifted to Dubai and the metropolis was systematically ruined to develop Dubai.

Land grabbing mafias have destroyed the city of lights turn by turn, he said, questioning that “why should we give vote to the people who are not sincere to the local masses”?

Imran vowed that his party will bring the system of justice, where everyone will be equally accountable before the court of law.

Local body elections in Karachi are scheduled for December 5. For the third phase of local body polls, PTI and JI have formed an alliance in Karachi to contest the elections.

On Saturday, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) had taken out a joint rally in Karachi which ended before reaching its announced destination of Quaid-i-Azam’s mausoleum.

The rally ended in the Jail Chowrangi area of the metropolis, as PTI and JI did not have permission from the city’s administration.

Earlier in November, PTI chairman Imran Khan arrived in Sindh on a two-day visit ahead of the second phase of local body polls in the province and toured the areas of Tando Allah Yar, Tando Jam and Umerkot district.

During the second phase of the polls, PPP gained a majority of seats in Sindh, with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) achieving considerable success in Hyderabad district.

The Zulfiqar Mirza-led splinter group also managed to sweep the polls in Badin district, a traditional stronghold of the PPP.
