MIANWALI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Saturday that he will hold the rich accountable and make them abide by law if given power.

Addressing to a massive rally in home ground Saturday, Imran Khan said that one of the Sharif brothers has been ousted and the other will also meet the same end soon. He lashed out at the Punjab government saying constables of Punjab police appear as postmen after their changed uniform.

He praised the people of Mianwali saying the locals never disappointed him when it came to support, adding that young and old in the city were the first to identify with his struggle. He credited the people of Mianwali for the election triumphs and success of party.

While talking about the issues faced by the residents, he said police reforms are much needed here because false cases are registered under current police practices. He gave the example of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police where PTI won the government in 2013 general elections, and stated that police reforms in the province resulted in positive impacts.

Imran Khan criticised the Punjab police for its political loyalties with PML-N. He bashed Punjab government for only progressing in advertisements rather than reality. He blamed Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif for the “undeveloped state” of Punjab.

Imran Khan has pledged that his party, if came into power, would get 100 million Pakistanis out of poverty in just 10 years.

“China has brought more than 340 million out of poverty in 30 years due to their policies and if I am giving the opportunity to rule Pakistan, I will lifted 100 million people out of poverty in just 10 years,” Khan said.

The opposition member not only criticised the ruling government but also took hits at coalition partners. He promised to reform FBR and NAB, and stop money laundering if given power.

He said that his priority after coming into power would be to fix Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR) and National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Khan said that there was one law for the rich and the other for the powerful. “Policies are made to protect the rich in our country. We will make sure this doesn’t happen during our term.”

The PTI chief said that he would plant billions of trees across Pakistan. “Trees are our lifeline as they provide oxygen and protect the environment. Some 350,000 people die every year in Pakistan due to environmental pollution,” he said.

He said that he would now target Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif as Nawaz Sharif was already gone. He wondered if PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari had ever paid any tax.

Giving credit to people of Mianwali city, the PTI chief said his party would have never been one of the mainstream political parties without their support. Imran has been elected from this constituency in 2002 and 2013.
