The Pakistan Tehrek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has directed his workers in Karachi to engage people in all the constituencies of the city and urge them to vote for change.

Referring to the rain which poured down on Lahore, he said, it was Allah’s decision to expose the Sharif’s so-called development work in Lahore.

While speaking to the media in Karachi, PTI chief said, his party is determined to change the fate of the city. He termed the progress of the Karachi city critical to the progression of the country.

Commenting on the unending controversy over “umpires ki ungli” he said, it is only Almighty Allah who can make decisions and change the course of events. Referring to the rain which poured down on Lahore, he said, it was Allah’s decision to expose the Sharif’s so-called development work in Lahore.

The one who claims to have turned Lahore into Paris must see the condition of Lahore after some downpour. The situation in Lahore is in front of everyone.

He lambasted the PML-N government over its failed economic policies. NA-243 hopeful said that he had never seen such a massive unemployment in the country. ‘Pakistan has become debt-ridden and our next generations will have to pay the burden in future’, he asserted.

People of Pakistan want to change, and people of Sindh are ready for change and PTI will have enough seats to make the next government in the country, he said.

In an emerging political scene in the city, it is difficult to see that which party can make decisive inroads to control an all-important city.

Imran condemned the other mainstream parties [PML-N and PPP] who ruled the country in turns and destroyed it.

PTI chief is on two days election campaign in Karachi. He is busy addressing small gatherings across the city and in his national assembly constituency-NA-243. It is one of the five constituencies from where PTI chief is contesting the July 25 elections.

Karachi has become a major battleground for all the national and regional parties. A city which generates the bulk of Pakistan’s revenue and is the cornerstone of Pakistan’s economic stability is buzzing with the political activity.

PTI which emerged as the second largest party in Karachi after MQM-Pakistan in 2013, is targeting a major haul in the upcoming polls. PTI which remained largely absent in the city in last-five years is trying desperately to fill the void left by the unraveling of MQM-P. PSP, MQM-P, PPP and even PML-N are aiming to win big in Karachi. In 2013, PPP, PTI, and PML-N had won a seat apiece, and rest of the seats went to MQM. In an emerging political scene in the city, it is difficult to see that which party can make decisive inroads to control an all-important city.
