LAHORE, March 16: The Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf Lahore chapter has started preparations for the party’s public meeting on March 23 at Minar-i-Pakistan that will also kick off its general election campaign.
Party chief Imran Khan will administer oath to 80,000 newly-elected office-bearers and also present party’s manifesto at the event.
Lahore PTI President Abdul Aleem Khan presided over a meeting on Saturday and formed various committees to ensure extensive and foolproof arrangements for the arrival of guests, sitting capacity and other requirements of the event.
Aleem informed the meeting the “historic party meeting” at Minar-i-Pakistan would attract at least a million people who would start a ‘tsunami’ in the country.
He said Imran had spent 17 years of his life for a noble cause and now it was time to begin practical work and bring about a positive change.
He said the PTI would help people get rid of traditional politics of the last three decades that had given nothing to the country.
He said those afraid of the popularity of the PTI and Imran Khan had already started a blame game. He said those elements had now lost their term and time to deliver.
Earlier, speaking to the media at Aiwan-i-Iqbal, where PTI Punjab body elections were under way, Aleem said Imran had given political awareness to the workers and they had chosen their own representatives in a democratic environment.
He said the tradition of intra-party elections of the PTI would be followed by other political parties sooner or later. Now, he claimed, political workers of all parties would reject politicians’ sons or daughters becoming their leaders.
